I may have to do this... Reblogged:
One thing I was jealous of in a wooden theme was a book counter. And since I couldn't get over it, I made my own:
It's time for Thursday Release and it's a feature many of you requested :-) Now when a given book doesn't fit any default status on your Shelf (Read, Planning to read, Currently reading) you can create your own exclusive book status.
How? You can create and organize your books with new statuses in several ways.
Go to your Shelf Page and create your new status with your name, e.g. Not finished. New status will be added and visible at once on your Shelf.
I'm a very wordy person when trying to explain something, so I'll do my best to keep it short and to the point.
First of all, your blog's font is most likely Arial - a default font that's used everywhere. You can change this with an override of custom CSS when you go to customize your blog. Custom CSS goes in the little bitty box at the bottom.
But we're not really going to get into that here. We're gonna take the short cut, because I'm lazy and I'm pretty sure I'd screw things up. So, what we're going to do is change this:
*gasps* You HAVE to get this book -- it's free, and it's wonderful, and.. and... just get it, okay?! </fangirl> ~Jess

I'm sure all these goodreads posts are of no use to existing booklikes members. And I've seen a few postings from them wondering about all these new followers (please don't blames us -- signing up for a booklikes account makes us initially follow 25 members that booklikes assigns us. We'll eventualy sort it out to only follow others with similar reading tastes or whose posts we enjoy).
Please don't think we all came over here to post offensive, threatening material. Allegations of bullying, rape threats, etc. sure do make good headlines. And good headlines go viral.
Some of us never wrote reviews on goodreads. Or had any shelf names worse than "Western" "Memoir" etc.
We already love booklikes for daily update posts and quick response to comments and email. It's incredibly soothing compared to our experiences with goodreads.
We are booklovers. Avid booklovers. We're the ones who worked tirelessly making goodreads immense database and membership a takeover target for amazon. Now that amazon has our data, they don't want us. Just to market our data to customers buying new kindles and amazon fire. They killed Shelfari who used to be the kindle integrated book site and now are replacing Shelfari with goodreads.
Some of us are here just to protect our book catalogs, as in we seriously have no idea what will or won't be deleted at goodreads. Likely very quiet members at that.
If you don't want to annoy lots of people with big assed posts on their dash... Use the page break function. Makes things so much less huge.
Spread the word!
This adds a "Read More" button to expand the post.
*Did I reblog this before? I don't remember but it's a good thing for people to see again. Scrolling through super long posts is cumbersome. You can add this when reblogging, too.
It seems when I imported my books from Goodreads, none of my four hundred shelves came over. Does anyone know if there's a way to bring the shelves over too? I have far too many books to go back and re-shelved everything by hand...
Be sure to pick up a free copy of Love Revealed over at All Romance eBooks! (Now I just have to remember my @#$%ing password there!)
So as you may or may not know, Amazon just announced the new Kindle Fire HDX, with it's shiny new lightweight casing, faster processor, improved battery life, fun new features, and revamped operating system.
I personally have the Kindle Fire 2nd Generation, and my husband has the previous generation Kindle Fire HD.
Now that the new HDX has been announced, Amazon is also coming out with a less expensive Fire HD -- one that notably will now be missing the front-facing camera, but will also be $139 for the 8GB storage and "special offers" instead of $200.
Now that they've dropped in price, I'm very seriously considering getting two of them -- one for each of my boys for Christmas.
My question to all of you is this: would you get the 8GB or the 16GB, and why? Though both of my children are able to read (one aged 5, the other aged 8), they will have parental controls preventing them from downloading too terribly much as far as apps, movies, and music go, even with a lot of books.
I'm leaning towards the 8GB simply because of the cost, but am I overlooking something important?
