    I just installed. Only one of the four books' images shows up.

    When you click on the book on the sidebar, you go to the library. Looks awful and I'm not sure how to code it. I read that I'm supposed to fix the template, but I didn't realize it would not only look odd (which I could live with), but the whole page lays out funny... Not inviting or "salesworthy" at all.

    Also, the link to Amazon does not open in a new window.

    It would be nice if I could select to have the sub heads (now reading, going to read, finished, show library) show or not. I would be happy with no sub-heads and all the links go to amazon in a new tab right away.

    There's no way for the plugin to know how your page is layed out; the only other option would be to take away most of the power from the user and simply dump out a limited set of data within a generic page template, but that's not how the plugin's original author designed it.

    Also, opening links in new windows is bad, bad, bad practice.

    All of the things you're asking can be accomplished by editing the template files to suit your needs. Sorry if that's unacceptable to you, but that's just the way the plugin works.

    Thank you. It's not that having to edit the file is unacceptable. I just don't know how. Sorry that wasn't clear.

    Why is opening links in a new window bad bad bad practice?

    Well, reading the comments to smashingmagazine's post I don't believe opening (external) links in new windows/or tabs is that bad....

    Maybe the templates are getting better in that thread.
