The top part of the page looks really weird.

And the counter for the number of books is increasing at an incredible speed. It says we now have 61,207,000 books!

At least now we have a goal to shoot for.

And I keep having to log in every couple of pages.  Though the top looks normal now.  First had over 61 million books with no members online, then one book with 590 members.    Now back to the normal, 1,606,674 with 559 members on.

I'm still missing the real-time updates.  I can never find any books when they are only updated hourly or so.  When I drop in, the ones on my list are all taken.  I have loved this site, but don't have the time to sit all day and wait for the updates.  It was so much more fun when they were added in real time.

You can check out the Under the Hood link at the bottom of the page to see what's going on in (close to) real time.  The books posted are mixed in with everything else, but it is kind of cool.

I get a process error everytime I come to the site that's irritating.
