(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.

Bookshelves - Shelf Options

Post by Kareka88 » 18 Sep 2018, 09:31

There are a lot of BOTD, you think would be good or may enjoy reading. However, you may not want to add them to your Want to Read shelf, but also don't want to put them in the Trash - Not Interested shelf either. I'm wondering if it would be possible to add a category in Bookshelves for those books you may enjoy someday. Maybe something like:
Interested
Maybe Someday
When I Have Time

An extra shelf is actually on a lidt to be added. Not sure when it could happen, but it is planned.

I feel the same way. I actually use my "not interested" shelf for this. :tiphat:
