Again you are missing read dates


message 33: by Tia (last edited Apr 25, 2015 06:50AM) (new)

Tia (fatgirlfatbooks) That's strange. I specifically set the date because I forgot last time and, when I look at them, "Date I finished this book" is set today. I'll clear them and set them to today again to see if that works.


message 34: by Cait S (new)

Cait S | 2825 comments Tia, I think Tea means you need to include that info in your post itself when you're offering the books for sale. If anyone else goes to look at the book's main page, it doesn't show up when you read it unless that person is your friend.

Also, I just realized Doctor Who isn't a real doctor (I'm slowing getting my brain back after this weekend), but it looks like there is a doctor in this book so many it can still count. I'll ask in the Tavern.
