The basket feature enables you to add titles in batch to a temporary basket. From the basket you can place holds, print and email title details, and add the titles to a new or existing list.
Lists are lists of items that can be used for a number of purposes. For example, you can use lists to keep track of what books you have read, if you have not chosen to retain your checkout history, books you would like to read, to maintain a class reading list, to maintain a reading list for a book club, to keep a list of books you would like for your birthday, etc. There are an unlimited number of uses.
You can see the lists you have created in the My Lists section of the My Account area.
