Choose how many books you want to read, then fit them to the categories given. I found it confusing my first time to!! check out other peoples postings too, for ideas.I'm only doing three at this stage, but may add more later. I't gets easier!

You are doing fine.. It took me months to figure it all out!! at the top right of the comments box you will see add add author/book I figure you already know abot that. The symbols etc you get them online. just google( numbers)EG or words or letters or cartoons) and go to images Use the "some html is OK" link and copy and paste that way. You can add anything!
description Right
Click the picture you want to use click copy image url, then remove the blah blah bit between the " " and paste the url in there! Have fun Night night. Oh you have to change the size of your picture too! Only remebered that bit coz my fav characters were an odd shape LOl
