I so appreciate people who have taken the time to share their tips for customizing BL, especially those that used very simple language. Please share your post sites or links!

Silverthistle's basics (with screenshots, in easy step-by-step): http://silverthistle.booklikes.com/post/460791/customizing-booklikes-tutorial-part-1-back-to-basics-how-to-get-started-
ThemisAthena's collection of links--breaks down into sections on Site Features, Personalizing, Background, etc. An excellent resource.
Just a quick one - how do you edit a review (or blog post) you've previously written?
If you hover your mouse over the top right of the review/blog post, a choice of "edit" and "delete" should pop up.
But if you go to your shelf - pick a book, hit the 'review' button to show prev review - those options don't come up?
Never tried that.

Carol, thanks for the shout-out.

Clouds: Batgrl has come up with a method to edit your transferred "back catalogue" here: http://batgrl.booklikes.com/post/571406/reformatting-your-old-gr-reviews-how-i-m-managing-is-there-an-easier-way-

I think there should be an easier way (who knows, perhaps there is and we all haven't found it yet). This one is a bit cumbersome, but for the time being, it works for me.

From Booklikes. How to edit reviews:
"You can edit all your reviews from admin blog view: http://booklikes.com/blog (click Blog on the top navigation bar). To find reviews, use search box in right column, then hover over the text and click Edit in upper right corner of the post,add correction to your text and Save."

And in the comments section of today's "new features" announcement they said they're also going to work on the popup window opening if you click on the books on your shelf, so as to make it possible for us not only to write but also to edit reviews directly off our shelves (in table view). See http://blog.booklikes.com/post/653731/shelf-writing-reviews-reblog-updates -- 6th or 7th comment down. I think that will be a great improvement -- that should make it very easy to access and edit reviews we've already written!
