Book Notes allow you to write a private (only you can see it) note on any book in the database.  No matter where you are on the site when you apply the note, you will see the note everywhere you see the book.

 

To apply a note to a book:

  • Click the "+Personal Note"  link in the More Options menu on the Book Details page for that book
  • Type the text of your note into the text box (limited to 500 characters). 
  • Click Save.
  • Your note will show on the cover image on the listing for that book, everywhere it appears.

To read your note:

  • Place your cursor over the yellow "sticky note" icon on the book cover.
  • The text will pop up in a little box.

To edit your note:

  • Click the yellow "sticky note" icon to bring up the edit box
  • Edit your text
  • Click Save.
  • You must refresh the page after saving a note in order to open and edit it again.

To remove/delete a note:

  • Click the yellow "sticky note" icon to bring up the edit box
  • Edit your text
  • Click Save.

What can the notes be used for?  Whatever you like.  No one else can see them.

  • Mark a book on your Wish List "Aunt Sally wants this"
  • Mark a book on your bookshelf "This is in the living room bookshelf"
  • Mark a book on your Reminder List "Move to Wish List next when I have room"
  • Mark a book en route to you "Here it comes!"
  • Mark a book you have mailed "There it goes!"

You get the idea.
