When you send an email alert on a price drop it would be useful to have the price history too and the prices of the book elsewhere for comparison.4 votes
yes, good idea. i’ll try that out, thanks
I'd like to suggest an option to set a price threshold for individual books outside of the main one you set for your list. For example, I have a number of scientific texts I'm watching that are likely to never drop below the threshold I've set for fiction books, so if I could set a separate alert for them it would be helpful.4 votes
I often add books to my watchlist on a recommendation from somebody and then go back to the watchlist and can't remember what the book was supposed to be about. It would be great if the book page gave a description of the book. One easy way to do this (without having people enter in data) may be to use the OpenLibrary API:
I like the price graph feature , but in Firefox, at least in my combination of Windows/Firefox, it doesn't work properly (price font too big for container). Also difficult in ipad w/o mouse. Would love a pop-out graph with date along x-axis. Could be done fairly easily with div container. Love the site overall4 votes
txtr describes itself as Europe's leading eBook store. It uses IP address to determine country, which makes browsing from overseas problematic, but I've used it in the UK to purchase a number of books in EPUB format4 votes
It would be great to have a per-user wishlist notification rss feed (containing the same information as the notification emails)4 votes
Getting close to the point where I can implement this
Perhaps you already do this, and I just haven't noticed it.
When I search for a book, I often find more than one result turns up for the same book. Some way to mark this as the same book and merge the results would be good, whether the merge is just for me, or perhaps (after review) applies to the underlying database.
BTW, I'm very impressed with the changes to the site since I last checked. The list of sites and prices is very good indeed.4 votes
This is a great idea. I’m making some changes to the UI at the moment, to make it more mobile-friendly. I’ll add a ‘flag this’ facility.
Thanks for the suggestion.
Two of the three top suggestions are for mobile apps. Exposing an API would be the first step in that direction. It would also allow complementary services to tie in with Luzme, such as recommendation engines, social sites based on reading, 'shopping assistants' to automatically buy books when they reach a certain price, and so on.4 votesAdminRachel Willmer (Owner, Luzme) responded
Luzme used to have a REST API. I removed it when the cost of maintaining it exceeded the benefit of providing it.
I’m open to suggestions about combining with complementary services if there is a monetisation model that makes sense.
Anyone that’s interested in that, please get in touch.
Thanks for the suggestion, I’ve added them to the To Do list
I use your service regularly and purchase many books through your links
when I receive notice of price changes for books on my watchlist. I
find the default of 10 items per page quite a nuisance. I change the
items per page to 50 so I can see my entire watchlist but every time I
look up something and then go back to my watchlist it is back to 10. It
would be helpful if you could eliminate the limit, increase it or allow
the user to set their own default in settings.4 votes
I think you should include prices from feedbooks.com4 votes
Sometimes the paper copy can be cheaper than the ebook, so it would be handy if that could be scanned for as an alternative. This might also solve the issue where Amazon (at least in the UK) have separate links for paperbooks and kindle editions, which is why half my watchlist didn't show a price on amazon.
Thanks for a truly useful service!4 votes
I currently use the Android book catalogue app as a management tool for my book wishlist, adding titles by scanning barcodes when I'm browsing in bookshops. I generally end up either buying the ebook immediately, or adding it to my luzme watchlist to keep its price under review.
It would be useful to add such titles to my watchlist less manually - either by scanning barcodes directly into luzme or by synching from book catalogue (I'd be happily change the app I use to be able to do this!).4 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, I’ll do this when I do the apps.
It would be helpful to have a column within the watchlist which lists the last price of a book and another column which states the date of that price change. Such as on other ebook price sites, one can see the price of the book when it was watched and the current price. I really prefer Luzme over other sites and would love this feature.4 votes
Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll add this.
The Amazon ASIN is available for Kindle ebooks even when there isn't an ISBN. You could then get info with which to search other stores from the Amazon data.4 votes
Good idea! thanks
A number of authors write under more than one name. It would be useful to be able to link to all of their names and therefore all of their work: for example Michael Marshall Smith also writes as 'Michael Marshall'; a less obvious example is Candace Robb who has written under the name 'Emma Campion'.
I'm not sure how easy this would be - perhaps by providing a feedback option for helpful users to provide the relevant information.3 votes
Along the same lines as the Goodreads and LibraryThing import, it would be awesome if you could import from Shelfari too.3 votes
Add ability to remove more than one book at a time from the watchlist.3 votes
Thanks for the suggestion, yes, I’ll add this as part of the next set of changes to the watchlist
One thing I prefer is PDF ebooks that aren't locked to a specific app. I've seen authors and some of the publishing houses sell PDFs direct from the website.
My suggestion for the future, have an option which searches for a non-DRM version of the book. Thank you.3 votes
