1 Oh that would be really cool, Otis!

1 I retook the test with a friend, and this time around i noticed how it could be benefitial for a new member. The fact that you can literally add a book with just one click of a button, was very nice.
For the rest of us who have a lot of books and have been here a while, it's not that good. I prefer how we can compare books now, but if you can add that "want to read it" button it would be great.

1 Hmmm, could be. I'll keep track of it if it happens again.

1 I wonder if this bug is back. I have received 2 emails letting me know that a book in my wishlist is available for swap. Once i go to the page though, it's not there.

1 I would love the same option, Steph.

I have to agree, why only public groups? I'm sure there would be MANY members that do not know about private ones that would be interested. That is the whole point of featuring the groups, correct?

1 Oh that would be really useful!

Agreed, perhaps this should be asked in better words in the post?

It's is a small box or linky thing that can direct me to a list of outside reviews. I would say yes, go ahead. Having the actual reviews in the book page, anywhere, a big NO. LOL!

I agree 100%. My friends review is more reliable than anybody else, if i check outside reviews it would be only because nobody has reviewed them here.

1 It would be nice to have it as an option, but personally i do not mind. This is how i found goodreads in the first place, and i think it would be the same for others who don't know there is such a site as this. Furthermore, i review books for certain publishers sometimes and rather then send them to my useless blog, i tend to direct them here where they can read it.

1 I have to agree with everyone. If the books neither one has yet to read are couted as "bad", then i do not see the point. Doesn't that mean that one or the other plans on reading that book eventually?

1 I get what you're saying Kate, it's just so upsetting. My biggest issue is the "morality police" that has been hunting those in the M/M group, it's just getting out of hand lately. *off to get a glass of wine*

1 Talk about book related stuff and socialize at the same time.

1 Why when we can do both? The pictures are not random. They are inspirations of what we picture our characters or couples to look like. Not having to deal with this drama for us is a priority as well.
Jun 18, 2010 02:31PM

1 Exactly. I can understand that not all of us have the same taste, and i would certainly not want anybody who dislikes these type of photos to be scarred for life when they stumble upon these pictures by "mistake". Since we tend to accept like minded people as friends, there should be no problem on only they having access to some of the photos we enjoy.

1 I'm wondering if there is any way, that we can have an option on wether to make certain pictures we upload to our profile set to private. That way only our friends are the only ones to view them?

I am getting so tired of watching some of my friends days be ruined by some bigots, because some of the pictures display a homosexual relationship. Leaving hurtful messages, that although GR staff is able to take care of those more opinionated....still some who say only 2 words are slipping through. Indeed, they are not breaking GR's rules by saying certain things, but they are hurtful none the less to my friends.

There's a particular group too that seems to have nothing better to do, than peeping through and flagging pictures just because the model is showing some skin. These pictures are not showing any more than most of the covers of book uploaded here. Are we going to start censoring those next? These people are not even on my friends list, which means they should only be looking at the first picture on their profile.

You may say that it's not happening directly to me so why should i care. But it's happening to people i've learn to care about and who do not deserve this drama. It makes me angry and ruins my experience of socializing freely with my friends!

1 Thanks for the info, Donna! I did think that the things posted there would be used on the free blog site. I also have a blogger account, but it's a nightmare to use with IE.

I just did a quick search and it seems released this new menu:
I'm going to play with it a bit and see if maybe i cannot enter a goodreads widget code somewhere.LOL
