On any book detail page, on the right, if you hover with your mouse over any of those buttons you get more info about that button as a "pop-up balloon".

Do you know how to make it stop?

I've got several books to add to my TBR pile and I think it would make it simpler for me if I could not have those pop up when I don't want them.

Thanks for any help.


Well I haven't gotten an answer yet. But I found an easier way to add books to my TBR list without going to the details page. So I've totally avoided my problem. But I still would like to know if I can turn off those "help" pop ups.

I don't know that you can stop them from popping up. But those should stay up only while you are hovering over them. If you move your mouse away , they dissappear pretty quickly.

If they are staying 'up' for you, I'd say something's going on with your computer.

Just wondering how you add your books now. I hate those pop-ups too. And I hate all the suggestions when searching even more. So annoying.

To add to TBR pile without going to each books detail page, you can go to the actual TBR list.At the top, just above the book list, there is a button that says "add a book TBR". You enter the ISBN almost as if you are posting it. It goes much faster.

I do find the mouse-over info under "more options" gets in my way when I'm trying to click.  If I scroll down a litlte on the page, it helps.  The ones you are talking about don't actually block me from clicking on my browser, but I wouldn't mind being able to turn them on and off.  You could send this in as a suggestion.
