at least, i think it's new.  i certainly didn't see it before, and i was wishing for something similar in a forum post the other day, so it seems like someone would have mentioned it if it was already there!

if you look at the detail of a book, it now shows if it's on one of your lists - posted, wish, reminder, or TBR, just underneath the rating stars.  so if i want to know if some book is already on one of my lists, i can just click on it instead of digging around to try to find it in my lists!  excellent.

I just noticed it awhile ago too when I was looking for book dimensions. But just because I just now noticed it doesn't mean it hasn't been there forever. ;-)

Well now I'm annoyed because I spent all that time tagging for nothing. 

But it is cool and now I can delete my tags.  But what happens when they combine the lists? Everything will just say WL?

yeah that is new but, not as reliable as TAGS...have several TAGGED that I've read but, it doesn't list them that way even though they are on my BIR list.

oh, and it gets even better!

i did a search, and it's now showing the same information on the search results screen, which means if there's several versions, i don't have to look at each one to find out which version i have on one of my lists.  plus, the transaction archive is included - so when i searched on a book i'd already mailed out, it was easy to see that.  sweet.

It is a nice feature but, I'm going to keep my TAGS going so that I know what ones I've read, are on my WL, are enroute to me...I haven't looked yet but, does it show up when you look at someone's bookshelf?

I love that it includes the transaction archive--now I won't accidentally re-order a book I've ordered in the past.

not so far.  i'm hoping it does get there, and also the daily wishlist.  right now i'm probably going to keep my tbr tags.
