I just noticed little "tags" or "clouds" (??) on  some of my books that say they are giftable. I must be losing  it, but did I do that? This is the first time I noticed it. If I did it, how did I? LOL

Someone else may have marked it giftable because theirs were.  Tags apply to all copies of a book.  You can put a note on yours that only you see.

Karen,

They are actually my giftable books, and I see them,  but am not sure if  others do. Perhaps you could check my bookshelf and let me know if you see them. They are small  square "clouds" overlapping  the image of the book, not the normal tags.

Thanks!

Rose

Do you hear the little voices too?

If it's a small yellow square on the book image, then it's a note you made about the book.  Notes are private - only you can see it, so you must have done it sometime!  =)

You're right, Ashley. I looked over my bookshelf again. The link to the right of each book that says "+note" brings up a box when clicked. In this box we can add any notes we want to about the book, and it will pop up on these little flags overlapping the image of the book.

Then when you are in your bookshelf, hover your mouse over the "flag", and it will say whatever you put in your notes, but no one else can see them.

I realize that this is a new feature of PBS, and I forgot that I had put in those notes, until I saw the little '' flags."

Happy to know that I'm not hallucinating :-)
