Please consider adding a "# of reviews" display setting

maaliskuu 24, 11:11 am

The "review" display setting displays your own review (in a very wide tab), which doesn't seem very useful. I think it would be far more useful to have a display tab that reflects the total # of reviews for each book. That way you could see if any of your books haven't been reviewed at all, or have only received a few reviews, such that you could add a review to help others determine if they want to read the book.

I see no point in adding a review for a book that already has hundreds or thousands of reviews; that adds little of value for anyone. But if a book has 0 or 3 reviews, then perhaps adding a review is helpful to others. But there's no way to determine the # of reviews a book has unless you click on each book, whereupon it shows you the number of reviews. But that's a lot of extra clicking to get that info.

You can see the number of reviews on the far right, where edit, delete, etc. options are. The lower 2 indicate number of members with the book and number of reviews. It isn't sortable, though, if that is what you're after

The number of reviews is visible in the catalogue if you go over to the right. There are 5 icons in a top row, and under that are a head followed by the number of members with the work and a talk bubble giving the number of reviews.

Adding to what >3 MarthaJeanne: offered, the talk bubble is filled in if you've reviewed the book, but is empty if you have not reviewed the book.

I agree that for others it is more helpful to add reviews of books that don't already have lots of reviews, but sometimes I write a review to remind myself why I did/did not like a book.

You can sort on total reviews by using the sort icon on the bar next to power edit
