BookLikes (and Legimi), is this really all you’ve got?

“The site is live and running again. No other features are planned in the nearest future. The performance will be looked into depending on the problems and the availability of resources. Sorry for any inconvenience.“ Comment on BookLikes’ Facebook page, last night (July 13, 2020).   Sorry, but that just isn’t good enough. Not any […]

Good news

Reblogged from: Lillelara So far Booklikes has run very fast for me today, which made me suspicious. So I tried to check up on the domain and due to certain circumstances, I ended up on another page than the one Themis-Athena has mentioned previously.   The good news is, double checked by Themis-Athena and found […]

BookLikes Newbie Wondering Whether to Stay

See: booklikes.com/thread/4818/should-i-bother-with-booklikes?p=0#thread-post Looking at her blog, I instantly decided to follow her; I also posted a link to her blog in the “New BL Blogs to Follow” group.  In the space of a single day, she’s pretty much nailed the site’s issues such as they present to someone who’s just signed up, but instead of […]

New BookLikes “Admin Issues” Group

As the “official” BookLikes group has been swamped by unchecked waves of spam, I’ve decided to create a replacement group for us to address the issues that we’d otherwise post in the “official” group: BookLikes Admin Issues Since it’s member-managed, it of course won’t cause any issues to actually be fixed.  But let’s face it, […]

Work-Around for “Date Read” / “End Reading” Setting

As Moonlight Reader and Darth Pony Pedant noted, there’s a bug in the system that currently doesn’t let you record any reading end dates beyond 2019 (i.e., from Jan. 1, 2020 onwards).  This is systemic, i.e. will have to be fixed by BookLikes or their outsourced helpers, HOWEVER, for the time being here’s an easy […]

Finding More Blogs to Follow, Part 3 — a Revival of “Follow Fridays”?

Reblogged from: Themis-Athena’s Garden of Books Reblogging this to ask for further comments on the current thinking (see additions at the end of the post): Interviews moving from blogger to blogger, with the interviewee of one week becoming the interviewer the following week. This should (hopefully) also help in letting the interviews move away from […]

Finding More Blogs to Follow, Part 3 — a Revival of “Follow Fridays”?

Those who were active on this site before mid-2018 probably remember “Follow Fridays”, a series of interviews presenting individual BookLikes bloggers.  (For reference, the last “Follow Fridays” post, with links to all previous posts at the bottom, is HERE.)

#Follow a Newbie (or any blog with few followers….really)

Reblogged from BrokenTune Hi, I’m just sharing this again as there seem to have been a number of new members to the BookLikes community. Because it isn’t easy to find people / blogs to follow and interact with on BookLikes, some BLikers set up a few open discussion groups some time ago where people can drop […]

Jeannie Come Lately Post: BookLikes Round Robin — Favorite Pre-1980s Movies

Pretty much everybody has seen it at this point I guess, but anyway, here is Book Cupidity’s idea: “Let’s list favorite old (or older) movies. The list can be long or short, with a narrative or no, anything goes. The parameters is that it has to have been made prior to 1980, I sort of […]
