Update book prices more frequently
It's not a good sign when a new user registers and beings using your service and sees a book with a price that was last checked in August (it is now the end of October of the same year). This seems to go totally against your method of operation. Maybe I misunderstand how Luzme functions? But, how can I obtain alerts based on price drops when priced aren't regularly checked?
When you register, your books start getting checked. It’s not possible to continuously monitor the 2 million books in the database every day, so the system concentrates on those which are known to be of interest to Luzme users.

I just clicked on Bleeding Edge at Amazon, your price was 8.99, Amazon was 6.44. Shouldn't I have been notified?

I was just randomly checking a few books on my watchlist as I hadn't received any pricing notifications from Luzme in a long while and noticed that a number had not been updated since Nov 1 (presumably 2015) and it's Aug 23, 2016 now! Is that normal? Has the site reached the scale now where all but the most popular books simply can't be price-checked anymore or is there something else going on?
