I love the new feature that shows you everywhere a particular book is in your lists - on your TBR, on your bokshelf, on your BIR, etc. Very handy!

What are your favorite new features?

How do you access that feature?

I think it's handy too.  And not so new but I love the passport feature, being able to see where books I've sent have been additionally sent.

Eloise, when you look at a book's description the tag info as to if it is on your shelf anywhere is under the title, author, etc in the upper left

I too like the new feature that shows where I have a book listed.  Maybe it will keep me from ordering a book that's already in my TBR mountain.  I get SO mad at myself when I do that and waste a credit.

I think those features are very handy, too.  Also, I like that if someone is already a buddy, there is a square by the word buddy, instead of a plus.  Lots of times, I'll think, "Oh, I want to buddy them," only to realize I already have them on my buddy list.

Of course they do that now that I've tagged my massive TBR pile.  I'm leaving the tags just for spite :-)

I'm leaving all my Tags too Mary...I've found that the new system is totally reliable AND I've Tagged the other formats of books I've read because those don't show up with the new system so you could still accidently order a book you've already read.

How are you all finding out about new features or upcoming features? I've read in a couple of places in the discussion forums that the 'reminder list' is going away. Hmm... is this information sent in emails possibly? I haven't checked my email for quite some time!!!

Kathleen - if you go to the Browse Help Docs - the first in the list is What's New! the second item in there (can't remember off hand what its labelled) will give you a list of everything that's changed around here. The bottom of the list is the most recent. The RL change is in the New Wish List item.

I like the newest new feature! I think it was just implemented this morning. I don't think I overlooked it last night.

Now when you look at someone's profile or their bookshelf, you have a "Give Credits" button!

Yay! Come look at my shelf people :)   hahhaahaha

Well I like the new feature as well but I wish it would show this information when you were working with the Box of Books feature. Not sure why that is different

I just skimmed some of the explanation for the new Wish List.  I'll admit that I'm new here but, oh my gosh, how complicated the point system seems to me.  I know that some of you old hands are looking forward to it, but I really wish (pun) that it would stay as it is.  I don't want to rank my wish list and I don't want it automatically ranked.  I like it as it is.  Yes, I know, change is supposed to be good.  I'm just happy with the way it is now!

I love that now when you post a book directly to someone's wishlist, a screen comes up that tells you immediately whose wishlist you are posting to.  Very nice!!
