How to Write a Review With a Book From Your Bookshelf

A search from your bookshelf option is back. Now while writing a post you can easily find a book from your shelf and attach it to your review, and any other kind of a post. 

 

Choose a post template: text, photo, quote, link, url, and go to a writing box. Use a search box, and write a book title or author. If you want to check whether a given title is on your Shelf, press Search o my shelf on the right.

 

In the search on my shelf option, use a book title OR author's name to find a shelved book. 

 

If the title is on your shelf, you'll be given a book edition straight from your shelf as a search result. The green marker on the left indicates that this book edition is on your shelf. 

 

 

Click the book and start writing :) The book review will be attached to the edition on your shelf, and the link to your review will be added to your shelf table view. You can attach 10 books to a single post.

 

Tips

 

You can also write a post straight from your Shelf. Hover over the book cover, click +Post and choose a post type.

New Ways to Reach Books and the BookLikes Team

image

 

We've prepared three updates today. And all of them consider books. Firstly, we've added a new way to display the book window with +Shelf and +Post options. Secondly, you can go to a book page from two places. Finally, you can easily reach the BookLikes team and send us a book info report. 

 

 

1. To add a book to your bookshelf, hover over the book cover. 

 

 

Once you hover mouse over the image, the book window with all shelving options will appear:

If you still don't see a book window when you hover over the cover, please refresh the page or clear your cache memory.

 

 

2. Now you can go to a book page from two spots:

 

  1. book window - click Book page in a book window;
  2. by clicking the book cover -- when you click the cover (on Dashboard, your Shelf, Blog) you'll be moved to a book page of this edition.

 

 

 

3. This leads us to the final update: the book info report visible on BookLikes' book pages.

 

 

The Book Info Report button will allow you to reach our team and inform us what information should be updated on the book page. 

 

 

 

If you notice that a book needs to be fixed or updated, please click Report, choose one of the possible options and send it to us. You can also add additional information in the comment box, e.g. a link to other editions (if the book needs to be combined). We'll sort out all the issues.

Advanced Shelving on the Book Pages and How to Change the Book Edition on your Shelf

Yay!  I just ran into the issue of wanting to switch editions, and could only figure out the most cumbersome work-around.  This is so much better!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shelf

 

 

The +Shelf button has received the Advanced option with all the shelving possibilities. You can also change the editions of your titles on your Shelf. 

 

All book windows have received a new look and advanced shelving options. To view all the options, click +Shelf and select Advanced at the bottom.

 

add to bookshelf

 

Then you'll be able to use all available options for the particular status: Read (reading dates and rating stars), Currently Reading (reading dates and progress), Planning to Read.

 

You can also edit/add shelves and new reading statuses, and add a private note. Additionally, you can shelve the book on a wishlist, as a favorite and private (the book will be visible only to you). Remember to Save all the changes. 

 

add to bookshelf

 

Updates

 

If you notice that there is a wrong edition on your Shelf, you can change it. Go to the Goodies Edition Change tab where you'll see a list of your books.

 

The entrance to Edition Change tool is on the Goodies page and on the Shelf Settings page.

Add Books Manually & Add Missing Book Covers

New BooksTwo "Add" functions are available on BookLikes from today:  add books manually and add book covers.

 

From now on it doesn’t matter if you want to shelve unpublished books or self-published or from a local bookstore, now you can put on your Shelf all books ever existed. It’s called manual book adding. We have it online!

 

If you don’t find a desirable book in a search box you can easily ‘create’ a book from the scratch.

 

 

Click on “Add new book” after no results were found and fill up the necessary information of Book Title, Book Author, Book Cover, Book Description and ISBN. Click “Add Book” and add it to you bookshelf or create a post.

 

 

Second “add” function is about missing book covers. If some books on your Shelf lack covers, you can add them manually too. Click on a green book (no cover) and ‘Add cover' underneath it. Then choose image from your computer and voila. The book looks perfect with cover of your choice!

 

 

So what book will you add first?
