Adding books to shelves (Retweet rewards)

Post by mohammedaslam » 21 Sep 2017, 08:53

Dear Sir,
As per the new retweet rules, it is required to add books to your "want to read" or "rating shelf". I have been doing this even before it was mandatory. However, I have a question. There are times when a particular book (example - the panama canal expansion) is the book of the day for three or more times. Suppose, a given book is the book of the day for the first time and I add it to my want to read shelf. After some weeks the same book is the book of the day. in this case, I move the book to already read shelf with a particular rating. Now what to do if the same book becomes the book of the day for the third time. Since it is mandatory to move the books to an appropriate shelf, please provide help on this matter. Pleas reply fast.
Thank you.

Thank you.
If the book is already in your read shelf, no need to move it again. Please read the info on your Twitter dashboard as it explains it.

The BOTDs are already on the Shelf. You add a book by using the "Add the book" option. You should go to the book page, choose the shelf you want to add it too (Want to read it or Not interested in reading), and then press on 'Add to shelf'.

Does this website and twitter have different time because I don't remember ever failing to post before the 24hr passed, that includes adding the books in the shelves. But when I checked on the records on this site it says I've placed the book on the following day so it's not counted.

This is only for the twitter program. Are you in the twitter program? If you are, your Twitter dashboard covers it.
