As of today, we have published 3,799 book recommendation lists and have ~100 to be published on Monday. Plus…
- 102 lists are being reviewed and tweaked by authors.
- 376 lists are pending review/editing by our editor.
- 36 are waiting on a missing piece of info from an author.
- 25 are soon going to be loading into our publishing system.
- And, 3 lists are lost as the author never responded back to us.
These lists power the new features we added in Jan/Feb (bookshelves) and the big features we are currently working on (genre pages and more). My goal is to create a virtuous circle where readers are finding amazing books in new and unique ways, while authors are meeting the readers who would be most interested in their book.
So, how have bookshelves been doing?
1,516 published bookshelf pages
As of today, we have published 1,516 bookshelf pages on a variety of topics. There are 1,294 pending topics that have at least 5 books assigned to them that I need to review and decide if they would make a good topic page. I’ve slowly been working through these and I am hoping to catch up soon.
Marton (the awesome developer I work with) just gave me some tools to clean topics up on mass instead of one by one, and I’ve been working hard to improve the system. And, over the next 60 days, we have some further improvements coming that will improve the accuracy of what we detect for books (especially for fiction).
Slowly but surely we are getting there :)
