How do I?

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

How do I?

Post by Colleen0701 » 01 Jan 2018, 07:24

If anyone can help I would appreciate it. How do I set my reading goal for 2018? How do I add a book that is not in the search results? I am trying to add Lonesome Dove by Mcmurty but the search engine only returns advertisements.

If the book isn't already in the bookshelves, you can add it...

Oh, okay, wait, I think I know how to do that. Sorry, I'm dumb. Do you perhaps know how to set your reading goal?

Via your UCP.
