One of the comments we have seen a lot recently is that the mechanism of adding books manually by users on MindTheBook.com first of all takes too much time and besides the database is still very limited. Therefore our users find it immposible to find many of the books they could recommend. We fully acknowledge this fact and I would like to briefly explain our plans here.
We have launched MindTheBook.com with a version we believe is good enough to bring interest and value to the users and at the same time enable as to test the concept and discover what works well and what does not. The desired process has always been to automate it and have a big database of books available for users to pick from. And I assure you this is coming soon. We are in the process of adopting a few available APIs, which will give an amazing volume of books to MindTheBook and will streamline the user experience. We will still allow books to be added manually, but the main source of books will be fully automated. Stay with us, we promise to make it work as soon as possible.
In the meantime if you feel passionate about a book not yet available in our database, please add it through “Suggest a book” button, it takes really less that it seems and we don’t need you to add a cover, we will do it for you.
Thanks in advance for patience.
