Your Suggestions and Comments

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Advanced Search option

    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!).

    • Identify authors' multiple pen names

      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.

      • Set a significant % change for price drops

        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.

        • Add filter by language option

          Filter search results for books/authors by language so that only books in a selected language are displayed. This is especially important for prolific authors who are published in many countries/languages.

            I’m planning to do this; yes, it’s very annoying to get all the spanish/portuguese/finnish versions along with the English..

            I plan to do this at the same time as a bunch of other user setting related stuff, hopefully pretty soon.

            Thanks for the suggestion

          • Per book price limits

            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 fiver

            • Filter foreign stores that would allow me to purchase

              As A UK user, It'd be nice to have indication as to whether it's easy to buy books from the various foreign stores (e.g. will they let me use a UK address and credit/debit card to purchase)

              • Add txtr.com if possible

                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 format

                  • Wishlist notification RSS feed

                    It would be great to have a per-user wishlist notification rss feed (containing the same information as the notification emails)

                      • Extend the site to pricewatch dedicated ereaders

                        Expand it to keep an eye on prices of the dedicated e-ink readers (not the tablet ones), thinking Kobo touch, Glo, Aura,basic Kindle etc as opposed to the Fire or Arc

                          • Implement Luzme as a Calibre plug-in

                            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!

                            • Multiple Watchlists

                              Hello, Perhaps you can have multiple watchlists, and then perhaps make them shareable. So, for example, I want to collect the whole series of the Star Wars Books. I would then set-that up as a discrete watchlist and monitor that list and buy off it when the price dropped. But I could then share that watchlist with others who had the same interest. Also if you have a curated watchlist, you could partner with some retailers, eg Kobo, and then allow users to buy multiple curated titles at a discount. Thanks

                                    Along the same lines as the Goodreads and LibraryThing import, it would be awesome if you could import from Shelfari too.

                                            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.
