:lol: i got all ocd and went through my entire cupboard putting the books on though i reached my 200 book limit and still have quite a few left to put on so i may need to pay $10 to get an annual account that you can put unlimited books onto :D i tried pretty hard to get all the right covers though a few i couldn't find and had to make do with a substitute :x

:lol: me too! My local library would be lucky to have me! I've always fancied working in a library as it goes...whenever I go in the librarians are just sitting there reading. Being able to read all day at work who wouldnt want that job!? ( Oh and I agree about the mutual lex stalking from the other thred! :lol: )

Hey guys! I love that the thread is alive again, but one on one conversations aren't allowed. One on one conversations are for PM's.

The only covers I had problems with not matching was a few of the Harry Potter series. I love shelfari.

I have had trouble with some of the covers that have been rereleased. I know with the Dark-Hunter series that some of my covers do not match the ones I read because the ones on Shelfari were the first editions and I read a release (which the changed the cover on for some reason). Does anyone know why this happens?

Oh, I just noticed on Shelfari that they do not include ebook only publishing. There is an ebook that I am looking to read that is a prequel to a series that I have started. It is to be released Feb. 9th but in ebook format only. I can't find it on Shelfari. Is there a way to give them suggestions to have it? Do they just not do it?

You are right, Una. I'd forgotten the D-H covers didn't always match. Hmmm...

I wonder why ebooks aren't listed. Perhaps they are still considered new?

I don't think I have officially joined the 50 book challenge for this year. I'm doing it; I just haven't announced there yet.
