Series - Standalone?

Passing this along from a friend - "You should ask TSG to add a feature where it says if a book in a series can be read as a standalone or if it needs to be read in order. Maybe a yes/no/maybe option."

Ability to Like/Heart Comments in Buddy Reads

It would be great if there was an option to like/heart comments in buddy reads, similar to hearts in the Community feed.

I don't always feel the need to reply to some comments/quotes but want to show that I read it!

Notes section for adding thoughts as you read

Like buddy read comments!

This would be so so handy for me when leaving reviews, if I could make a note of what I thought about the certain section of book at the time. It helps to also richen the category information and rating you provide at the end.

It could also be helpful if people are looking out for where the content warnings are in relation to the book.

community section in homepage

Not sure if this has already been suggested or is in the works, but is there any way to include community updates on the homepage? Maybe have it as something we can toggle on and off? I know we have that community tab, but I think it would be a cool option to be able to add it to the homepage rather than have to go elsewhere to see what my friends/people I follow are reading.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Longest and shortest book read for each year/challenge

Would love to see this in stats for the selected time!! Aka 2021 longest book I read was x words/pages, shortest is x words/pages.

Add 100 pgs or less to pg # pie chart

I read a lot of children's books, manga and novellas. It would be great to have this distinction.

Audiobooks - option to count in the pages read

As of now the audiobooks do not count in the pages read. It would be nice to have the option at least to change for us who want to have it count int he pages read. for instance I tent to hybrid read alternating between the two mediums so I would to have that option.

Tag Expansion

I like to tag books so I can find them in my tbr. Tags can sometimes be hard to read and I can't decipher what I meant. Here is an easy one "multibooksamecouple." I'm trying to label the book so I know that this isn't a standalone or interconnected to books that shift other characters as the MCs. I would name this seriessamecouple but it's kind of jumbled. If I could enter a "." or '_" in between words it would be so helpful. It would be "series.same.couple." Just a thought but open to suggestions!

Profile stats (friends, followers etc)

It would be helpful if I could easily see the number of friends and followers I have. I want to be able to include this type of info in my NetGalley profile,

Graph for specific books

A graph for each book that shows updates, pages read, etc over the time that I have been reading the book.

For exaple, I'd been reading The Brothers Karamazov since 2020 (and still not finished) but would like a graph that shows my progress with the book over time and when i read the most pages, etc.

Breakdown of Recommendations

I would love to see recommendations broken down by things like poetry, political science, etc.

“Added to my reading challenges” filter

Books that have been added to reading challenges that I’ve left still show up in that filter. Would love for those books to leave the filter if I leave a challenge so I have a more accurate list of what books to prioritize.

See Stats for Books that Share Multiple Tags

Currently, we have the ability to see the stats for all of the books assigned to a single tag.

I would love to be able to select multiple tags at once, and see the stats for the books that share the selected tags.

For example, if I have tags for "book club" and "bipoc author", I would like to see the statistics for the books that share both of those categories.

Home Menu Layout

Place 'To-Read Pile' above 'Recommendations'. While I like having recommendations on the home page, I have a long TBR list and use 'Search and Filter' countlessly more times than 'Explore'.

Expand 'Popular This Week' into cover image format and use that side bar menu for 'All Tags'. This would especially be helpful for mobile because every time I want to look at specific tag--whether it be for buddy reads, monthly TBR list, or something more specific, the click chain to get to 'All Tags' is way too many clicks to be useful. Having instant access to my tags would greatly improve the accessibility of the app for me.

Add photographer as a contributor role

There are plenty of books that will have photographers credited, but no role beyond a generic "Contributor" or inaccurately tagging them as illustrators.

Reading progress viewable to friends

My friends and I would love to be able to share our reading progress with each other. It would be more motivating to see how we are all doing with books that we are reading. Kind of like buddy reads but not specific to one book.

Preferences Survey Enhancement

At the moment, the preferences survey asks for both genres one likes to read AND a comma-separated list:
"Tell us about the kind of books you like to read.

The best recommendations are generated when your answer is a simple, comma-separated list of the things you're looking for."

Presumably this enables filtering by tags not just genres.

However, when it comes to what the user DOESN'T want to read, the only option is to add genres. Perhaps a similar comma-separated list of "Tell us about the kind of books you DON'T like to read." would help?

An example of my own usage might illustrate. I have "Dystopian" selected as a genre I don't want to read, but many of the books recommended for me are described in user reviews as "dystopian". They do not have "Dystopian" as a genre, so are not excluded, but if there were a comma-separated list of tags similar to the one for likes, they might still be screened out?

Add a buddy read from user page

It would be great to be able to start a buddy read from a user's page directly.

Separately, it would be great if my friends and following would pop up first when I search for people to start a buddy read with.

Page Equivalent Graph

I would love to see a graph that creates/displays a page equivalent for audiobook listeners - i.e. 6 hour audiobook = 250 pages and then the graph would display the 250 pages. I like knowing the page equivalent, and in my total month, it says zero pages because I've only listened to audio so far.

Thanks!

Humour/Comedy as a genre

I saerched for these keywords before posting, I hope this is not a duplicate entry. Would a humour/comedy be possible/feasible? Given the specificity of the genre options already available, the omission of this genre seems a bit surprising. The ill-yclept Amazon-owned Storygraph wannabe DOES offer this genre, I note.

Sort Read Books

Can we sort our read books by our own star ratings?

Middle Grade, YA, etc. not Genre

What are people's thoughts regarding YA, Middle Grade, Children's, (maybe more such as Graphic Novel) not necessarily being a genre but rather a type of book?

I'm probably overthinking it, but a genre to me would be the KIND of book. For example, YA is the kind of book and the genre is fantasy and mystery.

I'd prefer to have the KIND of book be separated in it's own chart, much like how fiction and nonfiction are their own things. If clicked on, maybe it could correspond with the genres of books read within each grade level.

Love to hear people's thoughts about this. Cheers!
