Daily streak
Coming soon

Nadia

With the success of our January Pages Challenge, people have been asking if there is a way that it could continue for the rest of the year.

We think that the best way to give people the same motivation they currently have to read a little bit every single day is to offer the option to turn on a reading streak — each day that you mark some reading progress in the app, your streak will go up! Miss a day, and you'll be reset to 0.

This will be opt-in so as not to stress out anybody not interested in this!

This is a thing in beanstack too! I would love to have things update in beanstack when I post here or vise versa.

It would be cool to include some form of 'Badge' or 'Achievement' for reaching a week / month / year streak too if there was ever an idea to do anything like that!😁

ambzillius Some other users have had some fun ideas like this about a range of badges we could add to the app. :-D

Will the daily Streak include stats? I would like to know how many pages/minute/hours I’ve read in one day.

ebbookworm Do you mean you'd like to see those stats separate from your daily pages/minute chart? We'll definitely make that chart easier to access in general and might incorporate it into the streak section/have a new calendar-type view in the streak section as an attached visual.

Really looking forward to this! I imagine the ability to add new journal entries retroactively will become a much more popular feature request after this comes out :D

Ooh — can you tell me a little bit more about why?

I do this! If I'm reading in bed at night and realise it is past midnight and the pages won't count for a day, and my reading graph for that month will have a zero day, I update the reading journal for the previous day. I want the accuracy and I compete with myself. I do the same thing with the rings on my Apple Watch.

Yes, I do this as well, as do several others, but that's backdating, as opposed to adding them in retroactively. I want to understand why adding them retroactively — i.e. after a book has been marked as 'read' — will be more popular. Oh — I see: you've marked a book as 'read' to get your streak count, and then later you want to go in and add your notes! :-D

Sorry, I'd missed this comment!

Actually, the scenario I was thinking of was more: say I've been reading a book for a few days and now finished it. I mark it as read, and only realise then that I forgot to add journal entries for the previous day, or that it's now after midnight, and I accidentally lost my streak. So now it's too late to fix that, because I can't add a new journal entry after a book has been marked as "read." Backdating isn't possible in this scenario.

Ah, I see!

We're not sure if backdating will be a thing with the streak in the same way it was with the January Pages Challenge, because it'll likely be an automated counter that just increments once every 24 hour period, once you've logged any reading activity.

With the January Pages Challenge we can afford to calculate your progress each time someone goes into the app/views the challenge: there's a maximum of 31 data points. It takes less than a second.

It wouldn't be performant for the app/website for us to check each time if someone has an entry going back however many days to calculate the streak.

We're envisaging something more like on apps like Headspace or Duolingo, where you do your meditation or your lesson, and you immediately see your counter go up for the day!

Yes, I would love the ability to do this. Sometimes I don't have access to the internet and I'm taking notes in a notebook as I go or highlighting in my eBook. I would really like the ability to go back and add those notes in without having to delete the book, mark the book done in the increments I have notes, and then go back and backdate all of those entries. It's a lot of work to go back and add notes but I'd really like to be able to do this afterwards. I have so many books with notes I would import to Storygraph if this were possible.

Can you also do something about actually showing that we listened to audiobooks in the daily log? On days that I only listened to an audiobook (but have listened to 1% or more) it still says "0 pages" which is really discouraging. Unless you created one for audiobooks Ana one for physical/digital books...

This might fall into this, but the January Pages Challenge had me realizing that I'd love to be able to create Reading Challenges based on pages read rather than prompts for books! So like, "In Feb, read 10 pages a day" - goes a little farther than the overall pages per year challenge and can be set for shorter time frames!
