There seems to be a problem with the new ratings feature - if I try to add a book to my BIR, it asks me to rate the book first.  Not a problem.  I rate the book, but it still will not let me add the book to my BIR, it still wants me to rate it.  Even though I did rate it.  Even though all books in my BIR pile are already rated, and even when I do a screen refresh.

A few other people have reported this problem and also some weird things that occurred on their BIR page when they went to add ratings.  (Strange books showing up on list, books not deleting, etc.)  I hope they are able to fix this soon.

I've had the books not deleting problem. Sometimes it takes two or three tries, which is kind of tiresome when you scroll down to check books to delete, then scroll up to hit the delete button, then... repeat until it works.

Actually, I haven't ever done much with my TBR and BIR lists, but thought this might be a good time to get organized. I intend to add books I have at home that aren't on these lists (as in, the freebies I received in book deals), but think I'll wait a while until the bugs are taken care of.

I've run into the same problem in the FABIL section.  When I click on BIR it tells me to rate it first.  I rate the book then try to add it to the BIR again I get the same error.  I've tried it several times with different variations (rate all the books listed on the page first then try to add any to the BIR and get the same error) - Most of the books listed are just different formats for the books I've already read so it's a bit tiresome trying to keep rating them again and again.

Hopefully this should be relatively easy for them to fix - otherwise I like the majority of new features with the latest upgrade!!

I was having the same problem.  It seems that it added it to my BIR list, even though I got a error message.
