Michele (mmicee) When You edit your post you can click the cursor at the end of the sentence ex:52. A book published in 2018 |
Then at the top of the post box in green/blue is a text"add book/author" once you click it opens a new box with the word "book" in that box write thw book you want to read for that prompt and click "search" once you found the right book from there klick "add" . And there you go :) Hopefully this was helpful

Gisela | 6 comments Thank you so much for trying to help me to enter in this challenge of Around the Year in 52 books. I really don't know how to enter the books. However, I will add the books read in my regular challenge of read 52 books this year using the categories mentioned by you. It is a way to decrease my tbr. Im not so good using these things. But thank you!
