Bookish gives extra points for sharing the review “around” the publication date but there’s no easy way to keep track of when that is (day of? +/- 2 days? week of? Varies by book? By publisher?) or even that the date is coming up.
I’ve missed the date for nearly all of my books because I usually log in to BookishFirst to read/write the first look for new books and enter the raffles, but once that’s done I don’t log in anymore that week.
I thought of two options that would be a huge usability improvement for readers and would hopefully benefit authors/publishers by resulting in more well-timed reviews being posted.
These are both for the “Book Reviews to share for extra points” profile section:
- Updated weekly when raffles refresh: list titles with publication dates coming up that week and dates that shared reviews earn extra points
- Updated whenever a book is won: calendar format listing upcoming publication dates for won books, even if user hasn’t reviewed yet (will end up including dates that are a month or more away, but readers will have an “at a glance” view for all titles)
@bookishfirst_team I can make mockup images if this is something your team (devs?) would seriously consider.
