Because there's several threads where people are working out schedules and what to read once you've figured it out please add a request here. It's just so we don't miss things.

Please keep this thread clean of chatter so that it's easier to follow. Thanks in advance.

Nothing wrong but a few additional steps. I added the book to the shelf changed it to the to-read shelf along with adding a new sub shelf for Dresdan Files. Gave it dates and the default folder that you created.

When creating a read thread there's a field called "this topic is about" and if you put in the book name it will resolve different books of that name. Choose the correct one and then after it will show how people rated it and link to their reviews.

Okay - thanks! I walked myself through everything you stated and think I've got it all. It makes me appreciate all the work you guys do. :)

I changed 'all the work you guys do' to 'all the work we do'

Too subtle or just not funny...........eye of the beholder. :)

One issue though- It's not coming up alphabetically with the other folders.. will that resolve itself?

No. You need to click on discussion, then click on edit folders and then click on move up or move down until it's in the right place. It's a pain in the ass and the UI for it blows. They could easily have a drag and drop.

Bah. I'll do that shit later

I took care of it.

In the thread when you start it there's a "this topic is about" and you should put the book name in. That way ratings show up and you can see who has added it etc.

I also in the bookshelf added a sevenwaters shelf and added the book to it and gave the an end date.


message 23: by Margret, Caladan Brood Face (new)

Margret | 3170 comments Mod
What do you usually put as the default end date?


message 24: by Margret, Caladan Brood Face (new)

Margret | 3170 comments Mod
Sorry I thought it just needed to be in the to read shelf

It depends on the book length. Shorter books 10 days, medium 14 and the biggies 21.

Margret wrote: "Sorry I thought it just needed to be in the to read shelf"

No worries. I'm just trying to keep it organized and no I'm not pedantic by nature but I know myself. Once it slips it'll be all over except for the tears.

Margret | 3170 comments Mod
Best to keep it consistent anyways, good to know


message 27: by Niki Hawkes, I made it past GOTM... barely (new)

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 6905 comments Mod
Hmmm... I don't think I set an end date for Storm Front. I'll check that when I have a chance.

Good use of the word pedantic.

I would also like a sandwich.


message 28: by Margret, Caladan Brood Face (new)

Margret | 3170 comments Mod
Sandwiches are actually my specialty. I grow tomatoes and bake fresh bread just so I can have a few special sandwiches every year lol. You know it's gonna be good when you have 3 pans going for just one sandwich

I'm trying to decide on a sarcastic simile worthy of those chances. :)

message 43: by Solseit (new)

Solseit | 1456 comments I found this place by accident! Thanks Mods for this - it is extremely helpful!

I was hoping we could add The Grace of Kings in the folder - we were brainstorming and it might be a good time to read in October (only 2 books of the series are out and it seems a different type of fantasy based on Chinese traditions).
Do you think we can add it? :D


message 44: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1763 comments If I am not mistaken, Guns of the Dawn is not yet in the shelf/upcoming schedule for October 16th even though Scott has made the folder.

There's just a lot of books between now and then and the application orders them by start date.
