quicker way to reading journal

i'd love if we could access our reading journal from the drop down menu at the top instead of having to click on our profile and then reading journal

Display rating as well as "You've read another edition of this book"

If a friend starts reading a book and I click through, or if they link me to a book page on TSG, "You've read another edition of this book" is not the most important information I'd like to see there — it would be nice to have my rating displayed on all editions, in addition to the link to my edition.

Perhaps "You've read another edition of this book (4 ⭐)"?

Owned Filter

I would love to have add an option to filter for "owned books". Personally, I am trying to decrease my owned TBR so it would be nice to be able to add a filter that helps me see the books that I own that may help me complete a challenge or for what I am in the mood for.

Buddy Read discussion order

I would love to see the option to have the buddy read discussion be ascending or descending. Right now I have the scroll a long ways to see the most recent thread/point.

Saved filters

I'd really like saved filters in the to-read pile. This is great for if you have a mood you're commonly in and would save you from having to check all the boxes/type in tag names every times.

Filter Quotes on Reading Journals

There is a way to look at your entire reading journal for all of the books you've read and tracked progress on. Would it be possible to add a filter so that you can see all the note or quotes you wrote down while reading? Filter out all the updates to the tracker that just progresses you through the book and only shows notes for all books at once.

update personalised recs to ignore books already on my tbr

sorry if this has already been asked (I tried searching for a similar post) but is it possible for the recommendations feature to ignore books that are already on my tbr? I would prefer to see books that have not come across my radar yet

Filter by Books I've Added to Challenges

Currently, when filtering books in my TBR/Owned/Tags, etc. there is an option to filter for "Books Added to My Reading Challenges" but it brings up any book that anyone has added to my reading challenges. This feels a bit cluttered and unhelpful because I want to filter for books that only I have added.

If I want to see what books other people have added to challenges I will go straight to the actual prompt pages. Currently, I've joined quite a few challenges and have to go through a lot of clicking to see what books I've added. I could make a tag for this but it became a bit tiresome. So, what I'm looking for is a way to see all books I have added to any of my challenges all in one place.

This could be a filter option or it could even be its own separate thing under the Reading Challenges (like a place to click to view all books I've added to my reading challenges, either in a normal list or cover view would be even cooler!). That way I could browse and pick my next read from this selection!

Import data from existing edition format when adding a new one

I would like it if there was a faster way to create pages for the same edition of a book in different formats (e.g. adding the e-book or audiobook versions to an existing paperbook edition).
If I'm not mistaken, the only way to do so now is to create a new page and copy everything manually.

In-app notification for closed book tickets

I would like to be notified in-app when a book ticket I submitted is dealt with.
As of now, we can only be notified by e-mail, or we are not notified at all.
I receive a lot of mails every day, so I would love to receive a notification in the app or website rather than by e-mail.

Streamlined genres tab on stats

The genres chart has always kind of just felt cluttered to me. Especially if there are like 10 categories where I have only read one book from. There are, also, a lot of arbitrary distinctions, for instance, between tabs like autobiography vs memoir or self-help vs psychology
It’s a bit of a bother to have to search between different tabs, especially on the app, just to find the exact genre-labeling of the book I’ve read, or map out how many self-improvement books I’ve read.

Maybe group certain tabs together based on very general genre and then allow users to choose increasingly more specific subgenres from there to avoid clutter. Or just combine certain tabs

It would also be nice to be able to look at more specific subgenres, even in using the search functionality to find new reads. For instance, being able to search for specifically Urban Fantasy books.

Date read and star ratings should appear together

When adding a book to your read shelf, it should automatically come with date read and star ratings immediately, instead of having to go into the review section.

Not everyone wants to write a review about the book they read and would simply like to note when they finished it and the rating. Having one option hidden in the review section is a needless annoyance.

Mark Interest in Reading Challenges

Sometimes I find reading challenges that I want to join at some point, but not right now. I don't want to join them because then they'll show up at the top of my reading challenges list, and I'm not planning on getting to them for maybe several months. I want some kind of "interested in" or TBR equivalent for challenges so that I can remember to join them later.

Reread Stat

When looking at all time stats it would be nice to see what books I have read the most (number of rereads and/or different editions).

filter reading challenges

It would be fun to be able to filter all reading challenges across the site by popularity to find challenges that large numbers of people are participating in. Just another way to bring people together

Browser agnostic website

As someone who only ever reads ebooks and finds buddy reads & audiobooks about as appealing as DIY dentistry, I know I'm not in the target demo for the big enhancements at TSG. The tiny and INCREDIBLY hard-working team has dome a truly fantastic job of maximising the user exerience for the greatest possible number of users, and I applaud in awe.

Adding to my list of things that I fully understand are VERY low priority enhancements (comprehensive DNF stats & sorting, seamless & painless ebook adds) here's another: a browser-agnostic website experience

One of the VERY best things about TSG is that it's not owned by a data-sucking megacorp as GR is.

Sadly, for those of us who access TSG primarily by the web browser (90% for me), the site is VERY heavily optimised for a browser whose data suckage is infinitely worse than Amazon's. I avoid Chrome as much as possible, but that means putting up with a markedly suboptimal experience on the website that I use more than any other, multiple times a day.

Adding hundreds of ebooks has been and continues to be a frustrating hit-and-miss "will it work this time?" kind of game, as the support team and librarians can testify. I am grateful for their tireless efforts and apologise for adding so often to their workload.

Dark mode also works properly only in Chrome. The percentages are blurred in Firefox (even on my 34-inch 4K monitor) and in my secondary browser, Pale Moon, the graphs won't load at all.

I fully grok, and support, the wisdom of "the greatest good for the greatest number" when it comes to the wonderful leaps forward TSG has made, but I hope that enhancements like this one can be kept in mind for some future attention.

stats for tbr

it would be cool to see the stats for your entire tbr rather than just under tags

Choice to type in publication date

Give users the choice to either use the calendar or type in the publication date when inputting a book or adding a missing information.

Reading Log/Integration Index

Would be nice to be able to add comments on a book as you go, maybe add a specific section for quotes you liked, or just being able to put parts of the text down in various categories that you’d choose.

Different editions for rereads

I often reread books using a different edition the second time. For example, first read was digital but second read is audio. As it is now, when you switch editions, the edition changes for all reads. Would love to be able to distinguish them. Thanks! 💖

Sort by popularity

Specifically/especially in the Browse all books page. It would be really nice to filter for what I want to read and then find things my library is actually likely to have

Temporary Immersion (hold) Status

I understand that implementing an immersion reading stat, where multiple versions of the same book are counted as one, is not possible right now. However, could you add an immersion status to the drop-down menu (want to read, etc.) for the books that can’t be counted right now, so we can put them aside while still preserving the progress entries? I have debated using the did not finish Option for these books, but the progress is deleted.

Summary statistics by author

It would be nice to be able to search for a specific author and view their book statistics as well as those provided during reviews so as to give a reader a summary an overview of the author's style and how readers see their stories (e.g. primarily fast paced, strong character development, etc ). The stats section available for each user could largely be replicated but to show for a specific author.

Count audio and read books separately

When looking at stats I wish the first stat stayed the same (total books) then I wish the pages read challenge only had read books in parentheses and then minutes listened only had audio books.

Separating format/medium from genre

I would love it if there was a dedicated stat for prose/audiobook/manga/graphic novels, because that is just as useful as whether something is digital or hardcopy.

At the very least: manga, graphic novels, and comics are not a genre. They're a medium or a format, as you prefer. Please can we take them out of the genre section?
