I suggest you ...

Allow users to enter new books to help populate the database

There are several ideas around improving the database - let us do it! (Especially if we can import shelves from other sources.)

        Not sure how ARC's are treated but would love to add what I'm currently reading with reviews.

        Ran into this problem today while making a new list. Hopefully this feature gets added soon! It feels odd having to leave out a great book.

        This can't come too soon to be honest as half the books I would to add/mention aren't on the site, which deters me from using it as often as I'd like

        Yes, it's hard to spread the word about great books when they're not available to add to your profile.

        I would love to be able to add books I can't find here. I understand the site is new and still has books to add but it would help if we could add our own somehow.

        If you don't want users to add books have a way for us to send you info for books that need to be added. I have only been playing around for 30 minutes and at least 3 of the first 30 books I was trying to add were not there. These were popular fiction published within the last 3 years.

        Yes, as well as covers from earlier printings or editions.

        I agree, but only approved members that have relevant expertise and experience (ie. librarians, booksellers)

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Allow approved members only (booksellers, librarians, publishing house staff etc) to add/edit title records/upload cover images etc (ie. I was a 'Goodreads Librarian').
