I have adjusted both of my posts. I just can't seem to figure out the review thing so I'll work on it and lower the points for now.

Go to your "read" shelf and make sure you are looking at the table view. On the right side, the last column will have two hyperlinks which say "view" and "edit". Click on the view. Your review should come up. This is the URL that you copy into your post.

I keep trying that and all I get is the same thing plus the whole review popping up in my posting. I'll keep at it.
