Day 2 on BookLikes: Uh-oh

Sooooo, I'm new to this site. This is day 2, and we're not off to a great start. 

 

  • First, like many others, I didn't receive an activation/verification code upon joining. But, after contacting support, I did. :) 
  • Then, I get in and I'm automatically following 26 people. That is a serious party foul! 
  • It takes over an hour to unfollow those people because I have to unfollow each one individually (no bulk option), and this site appears to be extremely slow and not super responsive. What's happening in the code here?
  • What I mean by "not super responsive", is this:
    • After I unfollow 26 people, the site continues to say I'm still following them for about an hour.
    • When I clicked 'Unfollow', it took several seconds for the link to change to 'Follow' - up to 20 seconds in some cases.
  • Random incorrect information: number of people I'm following, number of books, etc.

 

All of this could be simple site glitches, and some of it could even be caused if this site does not support Linux or browsers used by Linux users like me. I don't know. But, what I do know is I'm one of the many Shelfari refugees who is looking for another home that hopefully won't inexplicably shut down or be taken over then burned and buried by amazon. That is a tall order, but what we don't need is a site that's full of glitches. 

 

BookLikes looks very interesting, and there seems to be a lot of people here who use and love this site. There has to be more than one reason for that, and I hope to be here long enough to find out what those reasons are.

Another Great Kresley Cole Series
If You Dare - Kresley Cole

Wow! This woman, Ms. Kresley Cole, can write anything. I began reading her action packed-under and above the covers- Immortals After Dark series many years ago. I read quite a few, then put her books on hold for a while. I came back last year and have nearly completed IAD. As we Geminis love to do, we read at least five books at one time (depending upon our mood). In doing this, I thought I would try Ms. Cole's earlier works after having recently completed her new-amazing-contemporary erotica series, The Game Makers. Knowing how great she handled Contemporary in addition to Paranormal Romance, I had faith that her earlier works-The MacCarrik Brothers trilogy- would be fantastic. Well, I can honestly say that I placed my faith in good hands because this series, so far, is really wonderful. For those who like non-paranormal romance, don't mind period pieces with minimal historical details, and more detailed erotic scenes with brawny, sensual, loving, alpha-males who happen to be Kilt wearers, then this is your series. This book of three, is well written, has a good story line, is erotic but tasteful, and is an easy read! I highly recommend it. There is just a special way that Ms. Cole, and only Ms. Cole, writes sex scenes that are the most unique and erotic in general romance. I have never read anyone else that writes them like she does. It's strange because the scenes are so normal and vanilla, but they make you puddle on the floor every time. And oh yeah, did I mention there's an actual plot that takes up most of the book! I know, right?! Amazing how now we can get a two-for-one deal in today's literature. This book is indeed a "kilt lifter" not a " bodice ripper." Just to clarify ;) But not a cheesy Harlequin; one of few genres I detest vehemently. Yes, there is a clear distinction. So, check this first book out via Overdrive, it's free! You can't go wrong with that, especially if you are new to her works. Enjoy what's under the kilt, I mean cover ;)

Are You Effing Kidding Me?

 

This is going to be a bit of a rant. 

 

Some "authors" claim they are being bullied by reviewers and started a petition to Goodreads to put a stop to it. 

 

Stop laughing, I'm serious. It's here:

http://www.change.org/petitions/goodreads-policy-on-abuse-to-authors-not-to-allow-comments-to-be-abusive-in-nature?fb_action_ids=221148921425607&amp

 

I would like to start a petition for readers who have their name listed,( on a site that shall not be named), as a bully, for NO good reason, with no proof.

 

I would like to start a petition preventing independent authors from leaving comments badmouthing reviewers whenever they get a bad review. 

 

I would like to start a petition to stop authors from asking readers to POINT OUT exactly where they made mistakes mentioned in a review. (Get your own beta readers to point them out to you. Do NOT ask a reader/reviewer to prove to you that you messed up.)

 

Unless Goodreads can stop the things I have listed above, this petition should not even be considered by any lover of books. It's laughable. It's a joke.

Can you believe this nonsense?! Can someone get these authors a box of diapers and a binky to suck on?
