My Reading Library is a very heavy modification of the Now Reading Redux plugin by Ashod Nakashian which is a resurrection of the Now Reading Reloaded plugin by Ben Gunnink which is a fork of the Now Reading plugin by Rob Miller.

It allows you to develop a library, show the book details, track your progress, rate the book, and link to a WP post of your book review. It displays the library within the sidebar and on the library/book page with cover art fetched from Amazon.

The home of the My Reading Library plugin is in this WP Repository; however, you may report bugs and receive support:


Please backup your database before installing/upgrading. Thought I attempt to releases bug-free plugins (which is very difficult), my ability to perform tests is limited. If you find any bugs or have feature requests, please kindly report them in the Support Forum within my website.

Update Path

  • Pull total pages of book from Amazon and set as property on book edit page.
  • Use calendar UI for dates on the book edit page.

Known Bugs
