On your wish list, it means the order you want to read the books in it. If you want to read a certain book first, you put #1 and it get bumped to the top of the list.

On the Read shelves, it means ordering the books according to how much you loved them. If you loved a certain book the most, putting #1 will move it to the top.

Thanks gali. Now I get to think in-depth about the books on my read shelves.

Can you rank books on your shelf instead of them being in alphabetical order? If not, I think that would be great. I would definitely use it. I just read a book that I barely gave 3 stars, and it's going to be sitting ahead of an almost 4 star book.

Meaning if this could be added and it's not available right now

There is a bump feature. So, by bumping a book on your four star shelf, it will be shown to be your "favorite" book.

With time you could order every shelf to be exactly the order you wanted it to be 8)
If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

No. One only needs to write a review on books picked from the Review Team Page.

You need to buy them. The site only provides books for reviews.
