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.

Removing Expired Books from the Review List

Post by KristyKhem » 14 May 2018, 14:31

I recently selected a book from the review list (God vs the Idea of God by Thomas R. Harry) and attempted to download it via Kindle Gift. The Amazon page stated that the giveaway for that book expired in March and I was unable to download it. I emailed the Support Team and was advised to report it under the 'Update' tab as an error. I did this and the opportunity was removed and a 'not completed' appeared on my review history! Now I don't get to read or review the book :(

Suggestion: If a book is only available for review for a limited time, it should be removed from the selection list after the time has passed.

I second that suggestion, but also want to suggest to YOU, that if that happens again, PM @Scott, personally. That happened to me once and he corrected it, so I was able to read and review the book. Can't hurt to try!
