Carolyn (blackandabroad) Dear all in the 50 books/year group,
I'm excited about joining this group, even though it is already May. I'd like to add the books I've already read but can't seem to figure out how to do so. Can anyone help?

P. (shimizusan) | 131 comments Whoa... I'm a Coelho fan, and I'd love to read the books I've missed out. How's this happening? Does anyone know?

There should be a link at the top of the "comment" box that says "add book/author". Click on it and it will bring up a white box where you can search by book or author name. You can either add the title in a link, or a pic of the cover if available. Once your book is found, click "add" and it'll automatically be added to your post (like below).

Dune

just go to the group and start up a comment post with a subject line you can find again like Carolyn's 50 in 2010' then every time you're ready to go back to it, search that back up and add your books as a comment. If you want to add book covers or hyperlinks to the top, you'll see add book/author at the top of the comment box. click on it and search for the book (you might have to click some html is ok to make it work) and click on if you want a cover or a link to the book. Or heck you can just type in the titles of the books without linking to anything if you want but it's nice if you do so we can easily check it out if it sounds interesting to us. I'm finding this list helpful in compiling a 'to-read' list. good luck

P. (shimizusan) | 131 comments the comments here have nothing to do with coelho giving his readers the chance to read his books online... either I'm seeing things, or there are crossed wires here lol!

Thank you Corner of Madness and Sarah. I'm going to try it right now. I'm not too computer savvy so I might have to write back!
