I have tried 2 different computers and 3 diff browsers, but I cannot open notes and see it. If I open it from the book search (where there are a few books listed) I can see it is hidden behind the list. If I go to the book and open personal notes, it is partly under the book pic etc. I can't actually type in it because when I try to go to the front of the box, the picture comes up instead. This may be clear as mud, but I don't really know how to explain it. Same problem with browsing the help docs. They open transparently, and I can't read them, the stuff underneath is what shows up.

I have tried Firefox, Chrome, and Explorer, all the latest versions, all of which worked in the past. Is it me?

A few people have voiced issues with the Help docs showing up that way.  It looks like a glitch in the system at the moment.  I know someone stated they were contacting TPTB about it.  You could do that as well.  Or, wait and see if it gets fixed soon.

ETA : Trouble with Help?

The Help Doc issue appears to be fixed, and I just tested putting a personal note on a book and it worked for me (using Chrome).  If you're still having difficulties, Reader-girl, please let the PBS Staff know by using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any page, then the "Feedback" button.

I couldn't use the Note feature earlier either.  I haven't tried since I just came back on though.
