I'm so happy about seeing the number of people rating books I'm looking at.  It helps a lot to know just how many people lived (liked) a book or how many didn't and there are low ratings.  Bit (but) (? Big ?) thumbs up from me!  Dappledart may be right and I meant "Big" thumbs up!!  Don't remember - but it remains the same sentiment!

ETA- to indicate what should've been.  I'm also reading all this without glasses !!

ETA -2 - trying to remember words I meant!  ;D

ETA - some more confusion

I'd rather see the number that's available in PBS already.

Mary,  the number of books changes so fast and the number of people rating doesn't so much!  But I'd like to see that too!

Lol! Thank in any case for what you had to say, Ruth. It IS nice to know how many people have rated the book.

That is exactly what I thought the number meant when I first saw it. Was a little bummed when I finally figured it out. I guess the number in the system would change to much to keep an accurate account. Oh well...

I love the new feature too!  It's kinda fun to get an "instant" rating.

If the number in the system can be implemented on both SADVD and SACD, I don't see that it would be difficult to add the programming here.  If I recall correctly, part of the thinking of not doing it was because then people would not post books w/ 100+ already in the system, but there are several CDs and DVDs on the other sites with that many. 

On track though, I do also like to be able to see how many people have rated the book.
