C.J. Leger's LeafMarks Profile

 

I'm always updating new projects I'm working on and accreditations I receive across the board, while not and academic accreditation, I have just received Librarian Status on the LeafMarks reading network. I will be regularly updating the LeafMarks book database with corrected information and linking versions where possible. If you are on LeafMarks and have a book lacking information or a photo on your roster, or that you've come by, please send me a shout and I will put it on my to-edit list. Thanks!

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.

BookLikes Coming Updates

Just reblogging this -- it's a post from about 2 weeks ago, though.  Has anybody had a more recent response to these questions?

 


 

I sent an email to BookLikes customer support asking if a few features I'd like are going to be implemented. This has probably been covered elsewhere but I didn't know where. Anyway, I said to them:

 

  • I want to be able to click on an author’s name and see all their books on a page together.
  • I want to click on a book and see ALL the reviews and ratings for the book on the SAME page. I don’t want to have to go to each edition of a book, e.g. paperback and Kindle, to see all the ratings and reviews.
  • It would be nice to have a dashboard for authors so we can see at a glance how many ratings and reviews our books added to BookLikes have.

 

The email I got from them said:

 

"I want to assure you that works are in progress to fulfill all the requests mentioned in your e-mail. For the time being, BL uses book data bases of numerous book sources from all around the world (you can see them all in Settings/Search http://booklikes.com/settings/search and in book search box options) that's why each book edition received its own book page.

"However, for the past several weeks we're working hard on new book data base where all editions of one title will be together and there will be one book page per title (and not per edition) where all ratings and reviews will be visible. This will also allow to present author' pages and all books by a given author. The process requires time and advanced tech systems that's why it cannot be done overnight but I can calm you down it's on its way.

 

"We want BookLikes to be a comfy place for writers, reviewers, bloggers, readers, all book lovers that's why we're undergoing these big changes and more are in our future plans. We're also planning releasing panel for authors with stats regarding their books on BookLikes, on BookLikes shelves and mentions in BL reviews."

 

(Bolding for emphasis mine)

 

Anyway I just wanted to share this with you guys.

 

Love and smooches, Mona <3
