In the homepage I want to be able to choose a specific store and country for the items displayed under the "Recent Changes" tab. Many users invest on a single platform such as Amazon Kindle and are not interested on purchasing from other stores like Apple or Kobo.54 votes
Just a quick update, I’m making progress on this, but it’s coinciding with some other major changes that I need to make. So I just wanted to let you know I haven’t forgotten about it.
The plan is to have 2 sets of data; (a) the recent changes, but only including the stores you actually follow; and (b) recent changes, but only for books on your watchlist.
I really want this myself :) so will be very glad when it’s done…
...or make a mobile version of the full Luzme website that renders on smaller screens. Thanks!52 votes
I’ve uploaded a new mobile-friendly version of the site; let me know of any specific problems with it, but it should work better on an Android phone.
app coming later…
But I’d like to know what you’d want from an app that you don’t get from a mobile-friendly website; please get in touch an let me know.
I don’t yet have the iPhone/iPad app but I have just upgraded to a more mobile friendly version which should work a whole lot better on a phone/tablet.
Please let me know of any problems; I’m aware of one on a Nexus 5 phone which I’m trying to replicate. Let me know of any others.
And this is the next step towards having an app..
It would be useful to know what you want from an app that you wouldn’t get from a mobile-friendly website, please drop me a line and tell me what you’re looking for.
Sometimes mails show really only cents/ pence price changes which isn't greatly interesting. If we could set it to 5 or 10 % drops it could make a more actionable list.26 votes
The Goodreads wishlist support currently requires people to have their wishlists public. I plan to add support for private Goodreads wishlists too; if you'd like that, please add yourself here24 votes
If the Luzme watchlist could be incorporated as a plug-in to Calibre, it would produce a wonderul one-stop ebook management system.
I admit this is one of those "great idea, but I don't know how it would work" suggestions, but I'm sure I'm not the only person who thinks it would be a marriage made in heaven!16 votes
This gets filed under the “that’s such an obviously good idea, I should have thought of it myself”
Leave it with me :)
I would like to specify the shelf name for Goodreads integration. By default it could remain "to-read", but since I already own many of the books on my to-read list, I would create a shelf containing only the books for which I want to monitor the price and it would cut down on the number of emails.16 votes
I'd like to be able to enter author and title, and be alerted when a book become available as an ebook. (e.g. Helen by Georgette Heyer).
Yes, good idea. I’ll do this.
Have a list of top deals on the homepage. Show the most discounted books that have a lot of people watching.

Thanks, this is a great idea. I’m working on it.
An option to set individual price limits per-book (that override the global setting) would be great - some books I'd only buy for a few pounds, but other's I'd like to know if they dropped below a fiver14 votes
I’ve started making the necessary database changes to support this.
For the past several days, I have been receiving e-mails that Kobo's price on books on my wishlist have dropped substantially. In each case, I have clicked through from the e-mail to the Luzme site to Kobo, only to find that the reduced price is not available. Each time, the Luzme site is still showing the reduced price with a notation that the site was last checked "yesterday." As you know, prices can change quick abruptly, so I'm getting frustrated that you send me an e-mail about a great price long after that price has gone back up.14 votes
Luzme is awesome in that it helps me figure out how I can purchase a book for the best price possible, but what if I don't want to buy a book? Sometimes, I just want to borrow a book, but to do so, I have to manually search the book lending websites. I would really like Luzme to list ebooks and audiobooks available to borrow from overdrive.com or other book lending websites.13 votes
This is a great idea, thanks
Add bookstores from The Netherlands and Belgium (Flanders)
• Google Play
These stores only use country or locale flags to make a distinction between countries. Scraping results isn't any different.
Example: Kobo store "Dutch" branch: https://store.kobobooks.com/en-nl/ (or nl-nl)
Focus on these stores first but you should also considder to add (at a laterdate):
• bol.com; the largest online ebook retailer in The Netherlands (±80% market share)12 votes
Add audio books, like Audible.com to the search results.11 votes
Thanks, yes, this is a good idea.
It's really nice being able to view pricing trends on eBooks on the book's page, but it would be cool if we could click on the small graph and be able to see an enlarged one. It wouldn't have to be anything fancy; you could just have months and years along the x axis.11 votes

I want to add Death's Head: Day of the Damned (by David Gunn) to my watch list but your search does not find it although I know Kobo has it listed, perhaps you could add a button allowing a request for you to add it to your database9 votes
That’s a great idea, thanks. And should be quite easy to implement, so I should be able to do that pretty quickly.
Could we have an additional option so that we can search by multiple fields, eg, Author name & Book title. This would be useful for items that the search engine seems to have difficulty in finding.

Thanks for all your hard work, the site keeps getting better (and as you know I use it a LOT!).9 votes
