As it stands now I have to remember to check Amazon for any new releases by favorite authors "manually". My lazy self wants a plugin to do it for me....
Yes, you for sure need to check the enormous capabilities and excellent support of the OverDrive plugin.

Also check out BookBub.com. It will track genres and even authors for you and email you when new books are released. Genres are a little awkward and not filter ability to keep out junk in a genre, but the author following is perfect for keeping an eye on your favorite writers and what they are up to.

Add a Column to a User Category

I need a plugin that will add a selected column value (built-in or custom) for the current book to a selected User Category. FX: Add the current book's '#ships/Ships' custom column value to the 'Ships to Watch' User Category. Doing this via the Manage User Categories function is quite cumbersome.

The existing User Category plugin is not suitable because it does not support having custom columns in User Categories. This deficiency was raised in that plugin's thread last October, but no one has offered to update it. The existing plugin has Remove and Move functions, but I rarely use them, so I have no problems using Manage User Categories function for those functions.

Adding support for custom columns to the existing plugin would probably require a major revamp of its User Interface, which could irritate users who are happy with it as is. Hence my preference for a separate Add only plugin.

I'm really hoping someone can help me out with this.

TIA

Edit: I ended up using QV although it's not quite the same.
