DiverseBooks generates a number of news feeds. Any idea how I get them added?

Re: DiverseBooks

The short answer is "you can't" (since you're a free account user).

The longer answer is that you add a newsfeed the same way that you subscribe to one (i.e. on the same syndication page) - assign it a unique name, and type in the URL. When you do this, it will be added, and you will be the single watcher (cost of 1 unit). That's why you can't do it as a free user, since your quota is 0.99 units. You could ask someone with a paid account to add the feed for you, then you could sign up to it. However, that person would need to stay watching it - if they stop, then the cost would go back to 1 for you, which returns you to the original problem. Unless you know other people with free accounts who would also like to watch it, that is. I'd be happy to set the feeds up for you, then stop watching after a day or so, but I'm not really interested in having them in my friends page permanently (sorry).
