For a little while now, I’ve been keeping track of what I read with a WordPress plugin called Now Reading. It’s pretty slick, lets you assign ratings,
steals uses images from Amazon, etc. Other than showing the current book over there in the sidebar, I’d been hiding it from the world. I got a little bored tonight, though, so I decided to open the library up to everyone.
Unfortunately, if you dig down past the first page it looks like ass. The thing claims that some of the books don’t exist, and the margins are really screwy. The former I think is non-alphanumeric characters and mod_rewrite having a tussle, the second is just wonky HTML/CSS. It will improve as soon as I can get back to it.
Anyway, both of those books by David Mitchell are fantastic. Go read them.
UPDATE: Turns out I had to insert a missing <div> in order to get Now Reading and the Barthelme theme to play together nicely in the library. Yay.
