With the increased use of My Reading List I added some scaffolding to edit and update the books a user added. This was requested by several users as well.

Effective and beatiful

This CMS kind of things are quite labor intensive, and you usually want it to be user friendly. A great plugin that answers both is jeditable which allows you to edit in place after clicking the element. It works in a wide variety of cases, especially the select box popping out is neat.

How does it work

The technique is rather simple: you point to a server side script that gets the variables POST-ed in id/value pairs. It's best to check out the plugin's page and start playing with the demo page
