(update: Sep-18-2009) I’m giving the WordPress plugin Now Reading Reloaded a test spin. It looks good, but the CG-Amazon plugin allowed for any item on Amazon to be added regardless of whether it was a book or anything else. Anyway, I put a Current and Future Reading list on the sidebar of the laresweb.com home page.
(update: Sep-10-2009) I removed my Library page until I find a suitable replacement. The thing is, I don’t read many books these days with the volume of news that I read online. That and I’m helping Gabe learn his ABC’s and 123’s by reading books with him. Gabe really likes books!
The WordPress plugin I was using to display my reading list, recently read, and a sampling of my library of books recently stopped working. The plugin is CG-Amazon and is a bit dated, but was working up until I upgraded to WP 2.8.4. The database side of the CG-Amazon plugin appears intact, but it won’t display any records when the PHP call is made in the template.
So I guess I need to find an alternate way to display my reading lists on my WP blog. Any suggestions?
