    Hi,
    Pleasure. It looks great on your site.

    Another developer informed me about this problem as well. He claims that it is the API that will only return a maximum of 40 books. There might be a way to manually get the first 40 and then somehow starting with index 41 and getting the next 40.

    I haven’t had the time however to fully research this and implement a solution. My library has less than 40 books so I didn’t notice this problem at first.

    Regards

    Hi,

    I found https://developers.google.com/books/docs/v1/using#RetrievingBookshelfVolumes . There is limit in 40 items. Maybe I will try to fix this issue.

    Hi again!
    I have made a fix. Here is a code http://pastebin.com/DBh5XAja
    Check how it works http://v.bartko.info/?page_id=42
    Added:
    fetching all books
    caching of data to file

    It requires some cleanup, because I haven’t used php for years.

    So, if possible, feel free to add or use this code in your plugin.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, I added it to the plugin description. One more question.

    Someone else has been experiencing problems with that plugin where it showed a different amount of books on every reload and sometimes no books at all. After he updated to the newest version of my plugin (with your new code) he just receives the “google api error” message.

    See: http://www.sidewaysthoughts.com/blog/my-bookshelf/

    Do you perhaps know what the problem could be?

    Hi,
    I found problem, but it’s very hard to fix. In short, google api has very low quota and we need to make more than one request to get all books. After just few such requests google blocks server’s api for some time.
    I will try to create workaround on this week.
