Performance on this app is awful. Pretty much unusable. Top picks feel very tech-centric.
This is an awesome awesome product. As an avid bibliophile who loves to keep track of their reading progress, the UI and easy search for titles put Goodreads to shame. Also a huge fan of being able to sort between traditional reads, audiobooks, and e-books. There are only a couple of things that I think would really enhance this experience for me. - the ability to add start and end dates to each book that I’ve read - being able to indicate the number of times you’ve read the book - virtual bookclubs with others reading the book Overall this is a solid app and I’m excited to make the switch from Goodreads! :)
⭐⭐⭐✴️✴️ 3/5 stars from me A good first try but many improvements are needed. - It crashed on me almost as soon as I created my account (log in with Twitter worked fine). - Without asking, it subscribed me to their newsletters (I received 2 emails right away, "You have a new book recommendation on Bookself" and "Bookself Weekly 📚"). - The interface looks nice but is not super intuitive. - Many books in the database are duplicates. Overall, I would not seriously recommend it at the moment... There are many issues that need to be addressed but I remain hopeful it's gonna be great eventually!
