Find Books Any Time, Any Place

Search Books Any Time And Any Place

Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.

Neil Gaiman

 

BookLikes book catalog is like online library. You can search books and authors any time, and now, any place - the header with a menu and a search box will follow you and stay fixed to the top. 

 

If you experience the urgent need of finding a given title while browsing reviews on your Dashboard, you'll have fun with a new header - now you can use the search box without the necessity of going up and losing your reading position on your Dash. 

 

Book reviews

 

 

The BookLikes header received a fixed top position and will follow your fingertips and eyes staying close enough to help you out when you feel the need to move to another BookLikes place or use the search box. 

 

Reading lists

 

The fixed position of the header can be switch off in Settings/General

Discovery Boxes Personalized

 

Discovery boxes on your Dashboard has just received new options. From now on you can add your reading preferences and choose what books and blogs will be presented to you.

 

All new options are visible in the discovery boxes in the upper part of your Dashboard, in the upper right corner of the box. Each box has received its Settings spot where you can choose the preferences for each discovery box. 

 

 

Let's have a closer look at the particular Settings:

 

- Popular Reviews Discovery Box - you can select book categories that you enjoy reading, the reviews will be selected from the chosen genres.

 

 

 

- Who To Follow Discovery Box - select blog categories -- these are the genres that bloggers read and review on their blogs, the categories have been selected while registration or anytime in Settings/Blog.

 

If you haven't filled up the categories for your book blog, you can update them in Settings/Blog -> edit categories

 

 

 

- Giveaways Discovery Box - select preferences for the giveaway books -- you can choose language, country and format. 

 

 

 

- Daily Deals / Free Kindle eBooks Discovery Box - select categories for the discounted books and free e-books. 

 

The Daily Deals and Free Ebooks sections are in the middle further development. We're working on adding new book sources for the book promotions, deals and free reads, however, not all sources have a ready to go solutions and ways to connect. 

 

 

 

Apart from Settings the discover boxes are equipped with See me / See me not option, you can hide and unhide the discovery boxes any time. However, thanks to discovery boxes both new BookLikes' members and our regular bloggers can meet new book-likes friends, discover great reviews and grab new books, thus, we highly recommend to glance over them from time to time. 

 

 

We'll be also adding new discovery paths and new sectors to explore. Stay tuned. 

 

 

P.S.

Recently we've experienced minor issues with the images, including avatars and some book covers. If you've noticed that your avatar is still missing, please upload the photo in your Settings. Then everything should get back to normal with your photo image/avatar. Sorry for any inconvenience.

 

This may be also a good time to make some changes to your blog look. Click to read more ->

8 Ways to View Your Dashboard

Dashboard is a place where many book-likes things happen. You see updates from blogs you follow, bookshelf news, reviews, quotes, pictures. Now you can switch between 8 views of your Dash and decide which activities see first.

 

Your Dashbord has just received several views which present different activities of your Followings. You can switch between them and keep up to date with reviews and bookshelf updates or quickly find inspirational quotes and pics.

 

We’ve divided Dashboard into eight sections:

- Reviews - all texts marked as a review;

- Text - all published texts;

- Photo - published Photo Posts;

- Quote - published Quote Posts;

- URL - published URL Posts;

- Video - published Video Posts;

- Activity - bookshelf updates and other activity.

 

Once you select a given view, your Dash will present content from selected section. You can also choose All to see updates from all sections gathered in one place. 

 

 

Tag search box works in every view so it will be easy to find e.g.: a given title in a Reviews Dash view. 

 

Tips

 

To make your Reading Challenge visible on your other webpages go to Goodies/Widgets page, get the code and add it to your webpage's HTML. 

 

 

To make Reading Challenge visible on your BookLikes webpage (yourusername.booklikes.com) go to Goodies/Widgets page, get the code and add it in  Widget Area spot in Customization Tab.

 

You can place more than one widget code in Widget Area, just paste the codes one under each other. 

 

Future hint: We do plan some updates for the challenge, e.g. a spot presenting books in a given challenge.
