Currently Reading

Displays a cover image of a book with a link to Google Books based on a supplied ISBN-10 or ISBN-13.

I get a 'Warning: file_get_contents ... : failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden' Error in my logs and no books are displayed. Why is this happening?

Your web-site has been configure not to allow outgoing HTTP requests and you have 'Use Google API' enabled.

Please de-select the 'Use Google API' option to use the direct connection instead.

I get a 'No Google Books Entry Found for ISBN:NUMBER' on my Blog... Why?

Sometimes Google Books does not return any valid responses on ISBNs. Try the following:

  1. See if you can find an alternate ISBN for the book
  2. Toggle the "Use Google API" option
  3. Find the eBook on Google's Books Web Page and use its ISBN

Are you planing to insert other sources than Google Books to the Currently Reading widget?

I'll have a look into supporting Amazon, though they do make you jump through hoops to use their API (which is the reason I settled on using Google Books to start with).

Is there a way to get this plugin to do a library of all of your books into WordPress?

It's not currently possible with this plugin, no.

I'll give it a bit of thought and see if I can extend it to do that; but it will most likely need the creation of an alternate plugin to do that.

This would likely require its own database table to do properly, as well...
