I notice that I can't sort my books by the Review column. How can I find my own books that I have reviewed (or haven't reviewed)?

According to your profile you haven't reviewed any. If you had, from your profile you could click on a link that would show you all your reviews. Right now there is a black None where that link would be.

In your catalogue, on the right there is a review icon. It is in the lower tier of icons. There is a head with a number that tells you how many people have entered that work. Then there is a speech bubble. If it is filled in you have reviewed that book. Otherwise you haven't.

Although this does remain a difficult question. If you go to a popular work's page, you can tell you've reviewed it, and edit it from tom header but finding that actual review in a list of hundreds is very difficult (for instance if you want the chain link for it).

What?

Your review always appears right at the top in an edit box if you click on the "reviews" icon from the catalog, or on the "reviews" link from the work page. It is impossible to miss. Now, finding it in the list may indeed be difficult, but it's not needed to get the chain link or to edit it; the only reason to search would be the egoboo of finding where you are on the thumbs-up ranking.

>4 lorax: "but it's not needed to get the chain link " I can't get that from the edit box. Maybe I'm missing something obvious?

The chain link just generates the link to your review, which is the same as you get by those other methods (the one with the form /worknum/reviews/booknum). You don't literally get the chain-link, no, but you get the URL that you would get from it, which accomplishes the same goal.

>6 lorax: But that's just a link to the general reviews page. Which could be tens or hundreds long. I need (want) the specific review number work/booknum/review/reviewnum which AFAIK I can only find from navigating away from the book page to my profile/reviews/ the ordering by title and scrolling appropriately. Which is a pain. I'd love a better way. I would only use it rarely, but every time it's irritating.

One of us is missing something, then.

If I explicitly click on the chain-link to my review of gwernin's Storyteller this is the link I get:

http://www.librarything.com/work/3039463/reviews/59843913

If I open that up in a different browser where I am not logged in I do in fact see my review at the top (with the rest of the reviews underneath, true.)

If I just click on the "reviews" link in the sidebar on the work page for the same work, I get:

http://www.librarything.com/work/3039463/reviews/59843913

which is exactly the same link.

Are you saying this is not what happens for you?

I think it depends on from where I'm coming into the main page/reviews. If I come in directly from a touchstone/my books it works as per your post. If I come in from somebody else's review/page then I get the chainlink to their review, and no obvious way to get back to mine.

ETA but thanks for the assistance, I think it's just a minor niggle that I hadn't explored fully.

Hmm, let's see. Fortunately we've both reviewed Storyteller.

Ah, I see, clicking on "Main page" from someone else's review won't shake the book number, you actually need to manually edit the URL, or go to "Edit your book" which is very non-intuitive. Yeah, that's annoying.
