5 vs 3 Books in Mosaic View
Apologies if this is covered elsewhere--I looked and couldn't find anything.
In one of the previous updates, the mosaic widget for the Vox changed from showing 5 books to 3 with the recs bar. It drove me nuts, but as I haven't jailbroken my unit I sucked it up and dealt.
I leave my unit on Airplane mode for most of the time, except in the rare instance that I buy a book from the kobo store and need to sync it.
A few days ago, while on Airplane mode (and thus not connected to wireless), it reverted back to the 5 book cover mode! I was so happy, but I have no idea why it did that.
Last night I synced as I bought a book, and lo and behold, it's back to 3 covers and rec bar.
Does anyone know a) why it would have switched back and b) if there's any way to switch it back to 5 covers permanently?

The mosaic widget will show five books if there are no recommendations downloaded or if all the cached recommendations are older than a month.

Thank-you for the info, since it's useful to know.
One suggestion though: it would be handy to have an option to disable the recommendations, especially on the widget. It's a feature that alienates some users. I'll also hazard a guess that the people who turn off recommendations wouldn't purchase a book based upon those recommendations anyhow.
