It was there earlier today, but now it is gone. They must be tweaking it...

that is good to know. I thought that maybe I just didnt have any books in common with my buddies. So I was going thru my bookself doing the star rating thing.  And that is when I discovered that some of my books are still listed under the "HOLD" list and not on my posted list at all. *sigh*

There is a glitch with the ratings system, and I'm guessing that's what's holding this feature up.  The Books I've Read must be updated with ratings before this new feature can be activated, and if one tries to add any additional books to their list, it requires a rating first.  The glitch occurring now is that the system isn't recognizing when the rating has been added.

When this bug gets worked out, they'll probably make the Similarity Index available.  I'm also looking forward to it.
