Bookshelf for reviewed books

(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.

Bookshelf for reviewed books

Post by LV2R » 26 Jul 2018, 19:15

Would it be a good idea to have a bookshelf for just the books we actually reviewed for OBC? I have read lots of books that I have not reviewed which are mixed in with the ones I have reviewed. I would like to have a separate shelf for my reviewed books.

Also, would the number of reviewed books be a good "cool stat" to have?

On second thought, maybe we should have a shelf for books read, but not reviewed? This would be a shelf for books other than our reviewed books.

I don't think we need a separate Shelf for that. You can see all the books you reviewed on your History tab.

I'm not sure if I want to know how many books other people have reviewed. I might feel like a slacker in comparison :)

Cool idea. Some people might want to know. Maybe one for overall reviews and another for current year or month.

I'd like that separated as well. It may help with people viewing your review. It also helps me keep track. Even would be nice so I could put them in order of how I think is better. I may have several 4 out of 4 stars, but one is better then the other in my opinion. I'd like to share that as well with others.
