Voice memo option for buddy reads

I love using voice memos when doing bubby reads and would love an option to add them with the percentage complete

Stats on number of reviews

Similar to the number of pages graph in stats analysis, it would be cool to have a pie graph that shows the number of reviews for each book, binned into categories (1-999 reviews, 1k-5k, 5k-10k, etc.). It could be a quick way to see if you are reading rare or popular books!

Automatic time zone detection

I woke up this morning and was confused about why the app already said I had a streak when I went to bed before midnight, and then I realized that I'm in PT and my app is set to ET, so the logs I did at 10pm last night actually got logged as 1am. I'd love it if the app could use my system time so it updated automatically when I cross time zones!

Total Owned TBR Line Chart Over Time

I would love to see the progress of my Owned TBR over time (maybe split into months?). For example, if in April I read 8 books, and acquired 6 books, I would see that my total owned TBR number when down by 2 that month. I think this could help motivate me to read more of what I own, and think twice before buying a new book!

Additionally, it would be cool to be able to sort the graph by format, as I love to focus on my physical tbr more than ebooks/audiobooks

Q&A Feature

I would love to be able to ask specific questions about a given book. Sometimes googling and reading all the reviews just doesn't cut it!

I'd also be more than happy to answer questions as well--sometimes I'm quick with my reviews and it occurs to me later that someone might want to know more specifics about a particular content consideration. Maybe an opt-in setting to receive notifications when a new question is asked about books I own?

LOVE this app, by the way. Thanks for all your hard work!

Streak pause ability

I would love a feature to be able to pause my streak progress (similar to what Duolingo has) for when I am on vacation or other kinds of planned divergences from my usual reading routine.

Read books summary gallery

I would love to see a visual spread of the books I've read over the course of the year or month, kind of like the yearly wrap up!

Tie tags to a specific reading

When I re-read a book, I'd love to be able to tie tags specifically to that time reading it. For example, I like to tag where I sourced a book. Maybe the first time I got it from the library, but then I bought a copy before reading it a second time. I think it would be great to be able to have the tags be accurate to each time I read the book.

Track Progress on Challenges

Just like the way it tracks progress for yearly challenges (1 book ahead, 72 books behind) it would be nice to track the books ahead/behind for challenges that have a time frame - for instance the Storygraph Reads the World.

average year of publication

It'd be really cool if it was possible to see on either the yearly wrap-up or stats tab the avg publication year for the books read

Be able to suggest a book for a reading challenge but not count it against your progress

Sorry if this was posted somewhere already, but it would be nice if we could add books to reading challenges so others can see them, but not count them for specific prompts. For instance, in a book bingo challenge I'm doing - I have books that count for multiple prompts, but the card doesn't allow for repeats. I like adding books for people to find them in each prompt, but I'd like to be able to select which prompt I'm actually using the book for.

In the screenshot, The Tainted Cup counts for both Published in 2024 and Character with a Disability, but I only want to use it for the character with a disability square - my published in 2024 prompt is actually not complete since it's a repeat book of another prompt.

Option for "all colors the same" in custom charts

When the custom charts were first launched, all of the segments had the same color. I really liked the very quick change to make each segment have a unique color, because the first few charts I made were pies... but as I'm adding more charts, there are some where I do actually want them all to have the same color. These tend to be bar charts that have LOTS of tags associated with them, which is exactly why I don't want to have unique colors for each one. If there could be a toggle at the top similar to the "display by frequency vs alpha-numeric" that could be "uniform color vs unique colors" where I could pick the color once, that would be so awesome!!

Tags with colour attribute used in custom stats

In the custom stat graphs each segment can be assigned its own colour. Would it be possible to assign colours to my tags, such that when I include coloured tags in custom graph segments their colour is used by the segment?

This way I can have consistent tag colours across stat graphs when the tags are re-used in different circumstances, without having to re-select the β€˜correct’ colour in each segment the tags are used in.

Change Edition/Cover for Book Specific Reading Challenges

I would love the ability to select which cover/edition shows up on specific book challenge prompts! I've figured out how to get the covers I want by marking those editions as To Read if I'm creating the challenge but it would be nice to change it after the fact without having to re-add books, or to change them for challenges I've joined.

Also, some of the books I added had been read as audiobook versions, so it populated the audiobook cover when I added those to the challenge, but I wanted a print version cover for aesthetics, so I don't always want the cover for the edition I tracked.

Thanks so much!

Ability to include/exclude tags based on prefix

I'd like to be able to go into my Read books or TBR and look at all books that I haven't tagged with a tag beginning with e.g. "author-nationality-" or "set-in-" or "on-tbr-". I can manually pick all of the tags that start with that prefix, but it can get unwieldy with a lot of tags in a particular category, and I have to repeat that manual action any time I want to look at this filter again. In other apps, this often gets accomplished by being able to type in "on-tbr-*" into a filter box, and that would exclude ALL of the tags that start with that without me having to manually select the tags. Having this ability would greatly speed up a lot of the "let me tag all of the books with this new type of categorization scheme" tasks I've been doing lately so I can quickly see how many I have left to tag for a particular tag-set πŸ˜„

Buddy read comments automatically unlock when you add a comment that's past the locked ones

My friend and I are LOVING the buddy reads. (Basically we have been doing every buddy on SG and not just messaging each other. It's glorious πŸ˜‚)

Anyway, the one "complaint" we have is that when we are posting our comments, even if we have a comment that is further along in the book percentage-wise, the comment before is still "locked." I know it's because we haven't updated our page progress on the book itself, but it would be really helpful and easier to navigate if it was able to unlock once we commented past that page/percentage.

Sorry if this has been addressed. I couldn't find anyone specifically saying it this way, but may have missed it. Thanks!! 🩷

Secondary LGBTQ tag for Representation

The current LGBTQ+ tag is too broad and could be off-putting for those people who absolutely encourage representation but wouldn't necessarily care to read a book with that as the main focus. It means that the entire tag has to be excluded when only a narrow section is actually problematic for those users.

Would it be possible to roll out an "LGBTQ+ representation" tag that can go together with the existing one, to allow users to better refine what they're interested or willing to read and have recommended to them.

WordMap from reviews

Not sure how possible it is, but it would be cool to see WordMaps made from your own reviews or journal entries on Storygraph in the Stats section. For those that don't know a WordMap is kind of a word collage usually created from words that are used very often. The more often a word is used the larger it would be on the collage. Hopefully it would exclude words like "the", "and", "a", etc. it would be cool to see words we personally commonly use to describe books and see the themes!

Custom tag importing

Every time a new Instagram story gets shared with other people's custom charts, I'm like "ohhhhhh those are incredible, guess I'm going through and tagging ALL my books again" πŸ€“

I wish there was a way to do something like:

  • export my spreadsheet
  • update a field in my CSV with new custom tags, because going through all the books there is currently a lot faster than doing it in the UI
  • re-import the CSV and have the new tags be reflected in the UI to seed new custom charts

I guess another idea would be an API to post to πŸ˜… but really just some way of updating ALL my data quickly. I know there is another ticket for bulk updating in the UI itself, and maybe that would meet my needs, but I feel like for the task of "update every book with "Country Setting" tags", that would not be an easy case for bulk updating to solve because there isn't an easy way to filter on all the books from a particular country that I would want to tag at once.

Better way to browse periodicals/series and search for issues

I've recently been reading some long-running short fiction periodicals. Some of them only have 100 or fewer issues, which makes browsing to find the correct issue in the series easier. But for others, especially ones that have been running 500+ issues it can be time intensive to find the right issue or to see if it's there. It also makes it hard to figure out if the issue you're reading has been added or not.

It would be great if there were a way to search within a series by issue number or title, or if there were just a way to look through that didn't require simply scrolling down until the end.

Indicator for Tag already added to custom chart

I love the new custom stats for pro users. My idea is at an individual chart level to either disable or add an indicator to the tags already added to that chart. For example I have a publisher chart and I don't need "Tor Publishing" twice but I can't tell if I already added it unless I scroll up and down my list. Thank you so much for the amazing Storygraph!

Option to include a DNF books in reading goal

I like to count certain books as part of my reading goal if I dnfed past a certain point. Maybe a prompt that asks you if you would like to count it still.

Ebooks/Audio/Physical

It would be nice to have a record of what format we read a book in. Sometimes we may have it in more than one format.

Export charts as images

Right now, when you hover over the charts, only the "Number of books and pages" can be copied as an image. It would be great if any of the charts could be copied or exported as an image (maybe with a download button in the corner to preserve the interactivity of the charts).

"All Books" stats view

I'd love a view in my stats that includes ALL the books I've tracked (Read + To Read + DNF). I've made a custom chart for "year added to TBR" and I really wish I could set a filter for "all books, all time" and get a sum of how many books total I added to my TBR for each year rather than having it split across multiple views.
