Why is it when i click most recent BOTM it isn't showing July's rather it's showing June?

Do you mean on your RT page? Have you rechecked the score to refresh the page?

I've noticed this, as well; I JUST refreshed my score and it went down by 4 points because the comments I've done on July's BotM thread weren't counted. When I clicked on the link for this month's thread, it went to JUNE's BotM thread instead. It's no biggie for me, but these points can be the difference between being at one level or another for many readers here.

This often happens during the first week to ten days of each month. It's frustrating, although sometimes it can benefit you - for example, if you posted many comments in the 4th most recent BOTM (but not the current BOTM) and it still is showing as the 3rd most recent BOTM. :)

There is often a delay in the update of the BOTM points. That would really impact on those in the lower levels. I hope the problem can be remedied to avoid disappointing the reviewers striving to earn those valuable points.

It is probably a glitch then.

You can get to it through the forums. There is a section just for the Book of the Month.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.
