I'm using Google Chrome through Windows XP Home Edition 5.1
SEARCH - Doesn’t work as Before - I used to be able to key in a book title and/or author THEN – IMPORTANTLY - tick a “my shelf box” and SWIFTLY go straight to that specific book AND be able to EDIT / ADD to a Journal Entry + make a RELEASE on it. (SMOOTH RUNNING BLISS)
OK so here’s the thing I don’t want to use the BCID: to find books, UNLESS I am making my first journal entry on another bookcrossers registered book. I have dyslexia and I avoid typing numbers as I transpose them continually, it’s a frustration beyond hair tearing out stage. There’s absolutely no contest it’s much easier for me to recall and type out a book title or author, than a number. (Though I guess this goes for most folks without dyslexia too.)
CURRENT – Now going into Search to look for a specific book title and/or author takes me to what used to be the global overview, then it seems I have to click on a tab which takes me to all the copies registered on bookcrossing. And, if the book was not registered by me, to find it I will have to remember which bookcrosser registered the copy I have!*?!
MY NEED – all I want is to get swiftly to specific books on MY SHELF, using book title and/or authors names, so I can work on journal entries.
I’M HOPING – I’m mistaken and I’ve totally missed the right way to search for the books on my shelf as I want too? Or perhaps this is a early days thing and when the site is settled, I’ll be able to Search for a book title and/or author AND – IMPORTANTLY – filter (is that the correct function name) by screen name and get directly to the copy on my bookshelf. Please tell me this is going to be the case?
APOLOGIES - I think this might be tortuously long winded and am worried I’ve made a horrible mistake and have missed a simple explanation to my woes. I have done my best to try different ways round this issue also I am uncertain which words accurately describe the functions I want to use and I have excessive difficulty (I think its because of the dyslexia) in being concise. (It’s a pain read - many minutes of swearing, and tears of frustration at my having taken about three hours to research and write this.) Issues present themselves to me as a fog of information and the specifics are only determined by my going over the whole story repeatedly, and from as many different directions as possible.
If anyone is kind enough to reply to me directly please note, as my profile highlights I’ll be, in essence, offline from Sunday 30th may till Friday the 25th of June. By which time… I’m hoping this will not be an issue. Though I’m frightened if I don’t mention this issue it may not be considered and dealt with hence my posting.
