Just wanted to mention some things don't seem to be working.

When I try to browse by genre --> comics & graphic novels it says  showing 0 of 0  when I know some were posted. It doesn't seem to be working.

Also, when I try to look at the daily digest for previous days, nothing shows  up.

Thanks for all your hard work!

P.S. Question: When I look at the Daily Digest and select a genre, what is it showing? All the books of that genre that were posted today up to that time? If I check back later, will there be more?

Thanks again :)

I know on the daily digest if you pick a sub category you will get the listings.

As for the previous days, there were some problems with the digest that they have been working on.

 The search daily by genre part is not working today, and did not work yesterday, either.

If you pick the genre, then also pick a subcategory it will work on most of them. (I just tried it and picked the category authors a-z and thus got all the listings.)

I'm STILL getting the blank white screen with the "sorry doing maintenance" message on books posted today!  I finally managed to get into my personal messages a few days ago, but I cannot figure out how to get into books posted today.....grrrrr.

I'm getting books showing on the daily digest, but it's not working as far as only giving you the subgenres you want. For example, I have "Religion and Spirituality" checked, but only the "Earth-based religions" and "New Age" and "Occult."  However, when I open my daily digest page for R&S, I get ALL books classed as Religion and Spirituality now, not just the sub-genres that I indicated I wanted! There's no way I'm wading through hundreds and hundreds of books, most of which I'm not in the least bit interested in...so to me the daily digest feature is essentially worthless at this point. All the other sections that I indicated interest in are the same--hundreds (and thousands) of books to wade through.

The daily wish list I am still just getting a blank page even though I've dumped caches and refreshed and all that.

This is getting very frustrating when I can't search for books that I'm interested in by using the genre listings.  I don't have time to wade through every book that was posted!  I'm probably missing lots of great books that I might be interested in but am so discouraged by the amount of time it would take me to find one at this point.  I won't be spending much time on the site until this is resolved.  Please....I hope this is fixed soon. 

One weary swapper!
