All you need to do is add the Booktagger Facebook application (link above). To match up your existing Booktagger account to your Facebook profile follow these instructions:
- Install the Booktagger application on Facebook,
- on the Booktagger application in Facebook select Customize from the menu,
- then enter your Booktagger.com login credentials. Don't use your email address to login (which is fine to do on Booktagger.com) but your Booktagger username/nickname and password.
- Then you will see that you've matched your accounts and all your books will be on your Facebook profile.
We're busy ironing out the Facebook application so let us know if you run in to something unexpected, we're happy to help. So we now have Facebook and MySpace applications! You can now keep your bookshelves consistent across both platforms and see what your friends are reading.
50 Free BooksWe've also released another 50 books to for our members in Australia and New Zealand. Click here for the link: blog.booktagger.com. If you think that the books are already taken, think again as, per release, members are only allowed one book each and there are members who join every book club although they'll only get one book. So join the clubs even if you're interested in the book as you may still receive a copy. We're in the process of designing a better way to notify members of the true number of books available.

02. Tracking how many books I have read since joining.
03. Listing the books I want to read.
04. Ordering from Abbey's to get books delivered the next day.
05. Writing for the Booktagger blog!
That was too easy, I might have to do this again sometime.

Entrepreneur Poppy King's book provides help for those with a good idea who want to run with it. Poppy is well-known for Poppy Industries in Australia, and she draws from her experience building a successful brand, and her mistakes that led to the company's fall. After a few quiet years working for Estee Lauder as Vice President of Creative Marketing for Prescriptives, Poppy is back in the press with this book and a new brand Lipstick Queen that appears to have many familiar products we loved, but haven't seen for years.
Beauty editor Zoe Foster has written a novel of the beauty industry. I am a recent fan of Zoe's blog Fruity Beauty and finding she also has a book is a bonus!

Warrior Brothers is written by a former SAS soldier who describes some of his time in the service and afterwards as a contractor. The book gives insights into a person that thrives from the situations most of us shrink from.

This is one of my favourite images. It is from the inside of a children's biology book, An Illustrated Life, by artist Charles Harper. I have only every viewed images from Charley's many books online, but appreciate the artwork and, as a scientist, the way it communicates a fascination with biology.
