Good news, thanks Lanko, I re-read fairly often there are so many I have enjoyed and also to remind when latest in a series comes out

'..all tapes left in a car for more than a fortnight metamorphose into Best of Queen albums....they listened to William Byrd's "We Are the Champions"" and Beethoven's "I Want to Break Free". Neither were as good as Vaughan Williams "Fat-Bottomed Girls".

I'm reading a book and it says it's my second time reading it but it's only my first time, can I reset it somehow to one?

Try this: Click on the book's title, then scroll down a little and there will be the My Activity. On the top-right side of this part there will be a button Edit.
Click it and probably erase the rereading date, even if there's no date set.

There isn't a Twitter thread (or I don't know where it is), but I think this might interest those who use it a lot (I don't):

Now, when you reply to someone or a group, those @usernames won’t count toward your Tweet’s 140 characters.

Just did a very short review to a book last night and woke up and had six likes from non friends who have never read the book in question and I don't know them ,found it a bit strange.

So I found out something cool!

I managed to create a DNF shelf, and it doesn't automatically add it to my read. Which is great!
Just create a new shelf, then edit it, and mark it as exclusive. It's super easy!
