publication year vs read date: clickability

This is so minor but I would love to be able to click the points on the scatter plot and see what the book is and maybe even like zoom into the scatter plot itself? My dates range from -720 to 2160 so the view is very zoomed out and the last century is very compact/difficult to distinguish anything. :)

see friends' reading challenge books

I'd love to be able to see what books my friends have added to their reading challenges when clicking on the challenge from their page rather than it bringing me to my own challenge (like if you open the challenge from their profile it shows you their progress vs your own progress when you open it on your profile/from reading challenges).

See Books In Common on Friends Profile

When I go to a friend's profile, it would be nice to see which books we've both read or want to read along with any associated ratings and reviews. Ideally would work across editions

Count audiobooks separately

I would love if it was possible to count audio books apart from the books I've read. I want the possibility for them not to be a part of my "Read Books"

Undoing 'Read' option

Love the new update, and it's probably just my butter-fingers, but since then I've accidentally managed to mark a book as 'Read' twice when I was just trying to update the page number- would be great to have a way of undoing this without losing all the stats e.g. pages read per day chart, as deleting the journal entry doesn't un-do the 'Read'

Individual day stats

I would really like a way to look at the stats for an individual day or custom period of time (so I could say I wanted to look at Jan 4th through April 7th or if I just wanted to look at one day I could input Jan 4th to Jan 4th). This would be nice if I'm trying to figure out how much I read and/or listened to in one day (especially when I do a reading challenge in a day).

User options for percentage display

I don’t know if it was a glitch or a test on redesign launch day, but I prefer the percentage with the green background, over the progress bar with the percentage at the end. Maybe users can have the option to choose which way they want the percentage displayed. I attached a screenshot below.

Make owned a drop down menu with other choices

I know we can make labels/tags, but can you make owned a drop-down menu that also includes Libby, library, kindle unlimited, or a custom option.

Add Subtle White Shadow Behind Books in Dark Mode
Up Next

Similar to the subtle dark shadow in Light Mode. or even just a very thin white border, not sure what would be best. I've noticed that some of my darker-colored covers get lost and don't stand out as well.

Not a 'to read' book...

I have a huge number of collection and non fiction books that I don't read from cover to cover, but rather pick up and sit down over a number of years. It feels really cluttered to have them in the current read. I would love another shelf for those long term reading projects.
It could also be used for books that I own, but that are not on my tbr currently. As in I have no plans of reading them, but I would still like to keep track of them.
It might just be called "On the shelf" or something like that

Share Owned Books with friends

Hi!
I am a big believer in sharing books, so it would be cool if we could share our Owned Books on the Storygraph. That way our friends could see we have them and ask to loan them.
It could even go so far as seeing that a book is in a friend's library on the book page :)
Finally, as someone pointed out I think, it would be a way to see what books are still "missing" from someone's library to be able to gift them :)
Of course, as everything on the Storygraph (love you for that), this would be a opt-in feature.
Thanks for considering!

ASIN/Independent Publisher

I saw one post about this a couple of years ago; but I wanted to suggest this again. It would be nice to be able to add the ASIN for independently published books since those have risen in popularity lately. It can be a bit frustrating trying to add or select the right edition when it's published in e-book and paperback as well as various languages. Also maybe have a specific checkbox for "independent publisher" rather than have it as a search option.

I appreciate all the changes y'all have made! The dark mode looks incredible.

Compare tag stats with overall stats
Up Next

I'd love to be able to compare my tag stats with my overall reading stats. E.g. One of my tags is for a book club. How do the moods compare with the books I usually pick for myself? How do the ratings compare with my overall reading? I'd love to be able to see that all in one place.

Audio stats in tag stats
Up Next

Could the new audio stats get added to tag stats? I've got a few tags that only have audiobooks in them and the headline looks a little sad since it says 0 pages!

Filter and sort tag lists by read status and read date

One of my most heavily used tags is for audiobooks that I either have or would like to listen to with my partner. I'd like both the ability to sort/filter by status (read vs to read) as well as a way to sort by "date read".

For the former, the tag is getting bogged down by the many books we have listened to together and it's hard to find the ones that are TBR. My workaround is to make two separate tags, one for "audiobook-together-tbr" and one for "audiobook-together-read", which is a bit tedious.

For the latter, he asked me last night that our current book might be his favorite in a while, and then asked what were the last five or so books we had listened to, and I didn't have an easy way of answering because the "last added to tag" sort got clogged up by some catchup I was doing in December to tag books I had forgotten about. My workaround for this is meticulously ensuring that the new "audiobook-together-read" tag is being created in chronological order, but, that isn't a terribly scalable workaround since it's subject to me remembering to manually keep it up to date.

Show how many days of the year you've read in annual wrap-up

During next year's annual wrap up it would be cool to see how many days of the year you've read and maybe even set a goal for that at the beginning of the year (ie 300/365 days or something like that).

Building off of the January challenge.

Giveaway entry status on main page

I really love the giveaway functionality. I think the only improvement I’d suggest is if you could see if you already entered a giveaway from the main page. Or alternatively, could filter out giveaways you already entered. Thanks!

Make 'editions' link bold/easier to see on book page
Up Next

On the new book page, can you make editions easier to see? Right now it gets lost in relation to the rest of the page. Maybe make it bold like it was before?

Increase Up Next Queue Limit to 10

I would love to see this expanded to 10. Reason...library holds, mood, need for a shorter book, or time for a longer book...a top 10 just provides more options but keeps it manageable (never more than 10 would be needed).

Option to hide "buy" button

Give users the option to hide the buy this book/buy button. This would declutter the UI especially for users who have to rely on other retailers for various reasons.

Archive old reading challenges

I have a 2022 reading challenge that shows up in my reading challenge list. I wish there was a way to archive this because I don't need it anymore. I don't want to delete it though.

Books "To Consider" section (potential "To Read")

I'd like to see a feature that allows users to select "to explore" or "to consider," for when a user has heard about a book but is not yet committed to selecting "to read". Could also be useful when planning TBRs.

Currently, I improperly use the reading Challenges function to track books I want to research further, so I don't forget them later... but it's so many clicks and back and forth to do so, especially when later removing from the "challenge."

So grateful for this site/app! Excited to see it continue to evolve.

Sharing Stats made easier

I love to share my graphs and milestones in social media. I'm not very fond of sharing much but each new year I share a screenshot of how I did in the previous year. I would love to see the new end of year journey we got to easily share in Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and others.

Upvoting books added to challenge prompts

I often try to use challenges to diversify my reading. If I come across a prompt and can't think of a book to fulfil it, I'll browse the books other users have added for some inspiration. My problem is that sometimes I find that many of the books don't actually fit the prompt (ie. the prompt may ask for a contemporary novel from a female author, but the books added include classics, or novels translated from Arabic could include novels that were originally written and published in English).

Obviously no one has the time to go through and check the relevance of all books to their prompts, and I understand that not everyone will care so much that the books they're adding to challenges fit the prompts perfectly, but I think some sort of upvoting could help people who are browsing (like a thumbs up if you think a book is a good match for the prompt). Or maybe ordering the books by the number of people who've added it to that prompt.
