"Not a book" status

There are some types of reading material logged on StoryGraph that aren't traditional books (e.g. fanfiction, literary journals, etc.).

These types of formats need to be handled differently to a regular book in the product but we still want to give our users the ability to track them if they'd like to.

We are working on a set of features that'll better reflect the nature of these types of reading material in the app!

Would this include short stories that are either released on their own or as part of magazines? I'm thinking of the Hugo nominated short stories and novelettes that I currently have no way to track.

devrose You're welcome to create whatever book records you'd like and attach the "Not a book" tag. You can also search beforehand to see what else others have already added just in case! :-D

OMG! I listen to serialized fiction via podcasts (like Orphan Black: The Next Chapter and If I Go Missing, The Witches Did It) and this new feature might work for tracking them!

👀 I've been waiting so excitedly for this feature, since my book reading has taken an absolute nose-dive since Our Flag Means Death aired and I've been reading fanfiction instead 🙈 How do I use the new features to log "not books"?

When you create a book, there's now a "Not A Book" checkbox at the bottom that you can check! :-)

Where would I go to create a book? I'm struggling to find that feature.

When you search for a book, there's a button up top that says "Import book". On that page there's a link to the manual book form.
