  I just noticed today that there are no longer those little footprints next to the book titles.  I had had one book that was really making the rounds. I went to check to see where it was now and Poof!  There aren't any more little footprints there!   Have they been gone long?

I just checked, and there are footprints on my books. Maybe the page failed to load completely and you need to reload the page?

On your bookshelf and on any books you received through PBS.

This is a really fun feature.  I periodically go to my transaction archive and see where books I've mailed are at now.

I don't see footprints. Does it not work in firefox, maybe?

I've got Firefox and it works for me....try going to your Transaction archive and with each book description you should see a little footprint that you can click on.

I have them on my bookshelf and my transaction pages.  I thought they used to be on my TBR page, but they aren't there now.

i've got firefox, and it works for me.  but i wouldn't call them footprints.  there's this white circle outlined in red with a blue squiggly in it, and that's the passport that shows where your book has been.  it's fun to go through the ones in your transaction archive that were sent to you and see where they've been before you.

The squiggly thing actually is a footprint ;)

Oh! You mean the little blue flags? Try as I may, I can't see footprints in those. Thanks.

OH!  That's what those are!!!  I thought they looked like a blue coma or quotation mark in a red circle -- I couldn't figure out *what* that had to do with where the books had been.

 

*Now* I can see that they are supposed to be footprints.  That's cute -- once you know what it is.  :-D

hmm.  still looks more like a golf club than a footprint to me.  maybe if i could see toes it'd look more like a foot.  and maybe other people can see toes, but it's just too tiny for me.
