We’re bringing new Goodies! Reading in progress widget lets you show off book you’re recently reading. And new Friends main page shows you possibilities of looking through your followers/following and inviting other book lovers to join BookLikes Community. And we have some hint of future release.
New widget with book you’re currently reading and progress is available on Goodies/Widgets page. Just pick book you're reading right now and size of cover. You can implement widget on your other webpages or add to your blog page on BookLikes by getting the code and pasting it into Widget area in Customization tab (currently reading box is auto-presented but you can switch it off and replace it with widget in Customization tab).
To make the widget work fully, remember to add number of read pages in book pop up. Then widget will reveal your place in a book and how long you have to go on to finish it.
We’ve also updated the look of Friends tab by giving it main page where you see your recent followers and blogs you follow as well as different possibilities of inviting other avid readers to follow your BookLikes Blog.
You can use social media (Facebook, Twitter) and mail invites to ask your bookish friends to join BookLikes Community.
Following your requests we’re preparing new feature for those who read in paper, e and audio format. Soon you’ll be able to pick pages (for paper books), % (for e-books) and minutes (for audio books) in book pop up. This will be also visible on Currently reading widget and your public blog page.
