The ability to arrange Read Later
I think it could be useful to have an ordering feature on Read Later so that it is easier to find novels in it months after having added them to the list. These lists can be large and so I think an system which can order the read later section similar to the Advanced Search criteria would be useful. In particular:
- The Status of Complete, Ongoing or Hiatus.
- The Order By Functions; Last Update, Release Date, No. Pages and Popularity
- Genre Selection - Although this might be a bit clunky in the form it is
These would enable people to use Read Later as more than just a jumbled pile of books which you thought the covers looked interesting and would allow users to use Read Later as a way to keep track of Fictions they weren't ready to read/bookmark straight away, giving the option to wait until a books completion before reading it or alternatively not putting the time into books which have been on hiatus for the last 4 years.
(Downside is that it could potentially promote a culture of waiting to see if a novel flourishes before interacting with it which may reduce the views new fictions get. I might be overthinking though)
Honestly, rather than ordering inside the bookshelves. I wish the was an option on advance search to limit results to those specific shelves.
Let's say the was a 'include/exclude' Dropbox and then options in the field to add; 'bookmarks', 'favourites', 'read later' and 'not interested'. Maybe 'history'? 'My fictions'?
I feel like the implementation of that as well as there now being the options available to non-members just viewing the site would be a lot more complex than just adding an ordering system to the already existing lists.
I think the option to exclude currently saved fictions from advanced search would be useful for finding new fictions though. You might want to suggest that idea :)
For me the most important sort option would be "sort by date added to list".
I had just come back to suggestions to make this request and found an old one of mine and your comment lol
I'd love to see a filter option added - such as currently reading, unread etc. I know that it shows this in the V2 section, but it's not filtered and I don't read books in the order that I selected them to be read later. My interests and tastes in books change by mood, so being able to sort or filter the ones I'm currently reading to the top of the long list of books to be read would be fan-diddly-tastic.
Thats A great idea!
I agree that we need this option.
i came here to just suggest this because i was wishing to arrange it by how many pages the novels had, because i like to wait for it to get to a certain number before i begin reading because most novels on this site get dropped, so i figure at 500 or so pages theyll have written a short story and completed it or they at least wont drop it if they havent. its a minor inconvenience so i guess thats why it hasnt been done yet
We need this.
Far to many times i check my read later list only to see 99% on hinatus with no word and the last update month ago.
In that regard a Mark all Hinatus fictions as "Not interested" and "unfollow all" would be nice.
