Recently added books – new feature

October 27, 2009

Dognews
I’ve added a suite of features that show you books as they’re added to BookMooch. Specifically:

  • see all books as they are added to BookMooch (in real time!)
  • see books in a specific genre as they are added
  • see books available in a specific country as they are added
  • only see books which are both in a specific country and a specific genre, as they are added
  • see books as they are added by a single member
  • use Twitter to subscribe to any of these feeds and monitor them however you like
  • use Twitter to search for any combination of countries, users and genres that you like.

You’ll find all these features under the new “recent” button in the “browse” section of BookMooch.

I’d very much appreciate it if any mooching Twitter expert wrote tips in the wiki help page for the “recently added books” page, as the capabilities this all makes possible are pretty neat.

Note that this feature is brand new, and the “newly added books” pages only contain books that have been added since this evening. This means that many of the genre searches you might try will come up with no books, simply because not enough time has elapsed for books of that genre to be added since the feature was added. However, in a few weeks, most of the search variations should yield results.


A note about wishlist notifications vs. the “newly added books” page

These pages are updated as if they were the very last wishlist notification for any newly added book. I.e.: as if every book had an invisible “update me” member at the end of its wishlist.

Here is how this works:

  • If nobody has this book on their wishlist, then the “recently added books” will update 2 minutes after the book is added. The two minute delay is there so that if a book is added and then whoops! it is removed, no notification is displayed.
  • If there are several people who have wishlisted the book, the “newly added books” will only update one hour after the last email notification to all the wishlisted members. In this way, this new feature doesn’t preempt wishlist notifications: you’ll still get the emails when a book you want is added, and you’ll have at least an hour to get the book before it shows up on this page.
  • If a book is mooched, reserved or removed before the “newly added books” page is updated, then the book is never added to the “newly added books” page.
  • If a book is mooched, reserved or removed after the “newly added books” page is updated, then the book is removed from the “newly added books” page. People going to the “newly added books” page will not see books that are now no longer moochable from that member. Note that there is one minor glitch, namely that the “real time” update on this page only adds books (i.e. if you leave the page open and never reload it by hand), it doesn’t remove them if the book is now unavailable. To see an updated version of the page with unavailable books removed, you need to reload the page in your web browser.

Ok, now let me explain how to use all these features.

You’ll see the new “recent” button on the “browse” page:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.20.19 Pm

the page you get defaults to showing you all books as they are added to BookMooch. It looks like this:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.42.52 Pm

the rounded grey box which shows you the new books automatically updates every minute or two, and it uses very little of your computer power (and none of BookMooch’s), so feel free to leave it up all day.

There is a lot packed into each entry on the page, so let me go step by step through it. One reason it’s so packed with data is because Twitter, which I’m using to manage this feature, limits each line to 140 characters. I need to make each letter count.

Here is what a single book line looks like:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.45.04 Pm

The book title is given first. If the title is more than 70 characters long, only the first 70 characters are shown.
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.45.04 Pm2

Next, the author name is displayed. If the book title is quite long and the author name is quite long, only the book title is given. This doesn’t happen very often, though.
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.45.04 Pm3

Next, the URL to the book at BookMooch is given. If you’re interested in this book, click this URL.
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.45.04 Pm4

Note that the URL is a new, very short version of the book URL, in a new format of http://bookmooch.com/ISBN — if you ever need a short URL to paste into an email, you’re welcome to do this (ie, to trim http://bookmooch.com/detail/1416524541 into http://bookmooch.com/1416524541).

An aside: while working to make this very short URL, I noticed that some people mis-type common URLs at BookMooch, such as “http://bookmooch.com/m” (leaving off the trailing /) — I now transparently “fix” the most common typos and they work as you’d expect, redirecting you automatically to the right URL.

Next on the line is the BookMooch userid of the person giving this book away:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.45.04 Pm5

Twitter uses #tags to indicate important searchable tags, which is why the # is present so many times on this line. It also means that you can use the twitter web site to search for any BookMooch username, and you’ll see (on twitter.com) their books as they add them.

Next, the country of the book owner listing this book is displayed, as a two-digit code (ie, USA is “US”)
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.45.04 Pm6

Next, the main genres this book is categorized in are shown, in a very abbreviated format:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.45.04 Pm7

In this example, #chld = children’s book, and #clssc = classics. If there are too many genres for a book for the 140 character limit, as many as will fit are shown.

Finally, how long ago the book was added is displayed:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.45.04 Pm8


Now, let’s go back to the “recently added books” form itself.

You can select a genre, and then click the “genre” button to view only newly added books in a certain genre. The list looks like this:
Genresdropdown234

Note that only the “top genres” from the “browse topics” page are used. I’ve been talking to the BookMooch admins and they’re about to give me a more useful list of genres, so this will change in a few days.

the same kind of search is possible for countries, which is very useful if you prefer to mooch books from people in your own country:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 11.01.05 Pm

At the top right of this page, and of every page of the “recently added books” feature set, you’ll find an “advanced search” button:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.58.47 Pm

this brings you to a page where you specify a genre and a country that you’d like to restrict your view to.
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 11.03.30 Pm

For example, you can show only “Romance” novels in the “United States”
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 11.04.19 Pm


As of today, you can now see a “recent” button on the inventory page for every member.
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 11.09.08 Pm

this will give you a live page of books added by that member:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 11.11.07 Pm


I haven’t yet mentioned the “twitter feed” button that is on the top right of every “recently added books” page:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 10.58.53 Pm

If you click this (or the “join the conversation” link at the bottom right of each page) you’ll be taken to a twitter.com page that is equivalent to the BookMooch.com page you were just viewing:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 11.12.51 Pm

If you have a twitter account, you might want to follow the “bookmooch” account on Twitter and use any of the dozens of Twitter goodies out there to do neat things.

For example, if you go to your own inventory page at BookMooch and click on the twitter feed link (editor: I just noticed that button is missing, will fix tomorrow), you might see:
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 11.15.44 Pm

You could then (for example) use a Twitter Widget, such as the “Widget Search” to build an automatically-updating widget of your inventory for your web site.
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 11.17.22 Pm

this is a really convenient way to embed your BookMooch inventory on Facebook or Myspace.

You can also very easily search newly added books inside Twitter itself. For example if you type “bookmooch #us #scifi” then this will match the “bookmooch” user (which is where the feed comes from) and the country “us” (United States) and the Science Fiction genre.
Screen Shot 2009-10-26 At 11.22.35 Pm

There’s a lot packed into this new feature, and I’m sure I’ve omitted some neat things that are possible, so please leave comments to this blog entry if you’ve got more ideas!

    LOVE IT! Awesome, now I can just look for new books from Australia. Keep up the awesome work guys.

    • Lani said

      I love this feature too, but am puzzled that yesterday a book was listed as a new listing and when I went to the guys BM page, he hasn’t been on BM for 26 days! How was his book listed as a new listing?

  2. Patrick said

    This is a wonderful idea! However…

    I wish there was a way to see ALL recently posted books, ESPECIALLY including ones that were instantly requested. I understand that having information about books that can no longer be mooched might be frustrating for some members, so maybe that could be a separate feature (for instance a “recently mooched” listing), but if you can’t truly get a listing of ALL recently posted books, then the feature isn’t nearly as useful as it could be (in getting an accurate picture of trading action, as well as helping to figure out whether books we want are getting posted at all).

  3. bernadetteinoz said

    Utterly brilliant. Thanks for the continued brilliant service

  4. Taneli T said

    So wonderful, John. I’ll have to look more closely at the possibilities later, but this looks like an absolutely excellent thing. Thanks so much.

  5. Ben said

    Did I understand correctly that books will show up on the “Recently added books” page one hour after an email has been to people on the wish list? Doesn’t this just make it harder for people to get books that they are waiting for? I already have lots of trouble getting any books on my wish list as I don’t check my email constantly and usually lose the first-come-first-served system that BookMooch has…

  6. Mary Spurgeon said

    Yes, you will still have to check your wishlist often to catch certain books but… I am so glad we now have this available. Remember there are many books added that are highly wishlisted that you will be able to see because of the different printings! Also, I have seen several with wishlists that are appearing. Plus, think of all the wonderful books you can now see! Oh, I am so happy! Thank you John so much!

  7. Norberto Amaral said

    I love this new feature! Indeed, I’ve been looking for new books available locally (Portugal) manually and that obviously takes a long time and isn’t error-free.
    So I’m definitely going to be using this all the time now.
    My only comment is that the link to the user (say, #namaral) from the Twitter window on the Bookmooch site takes us to Twitter but from there it won’t take us anywhere. It seems to expect that Bookmooch users are actually Twitter users and tries to show a Twitter account.
    Oh, and another thing: this only works for books added after this feature was added, right? Any chance of going back to the past? What about putting a date filter on the results?
    Thanks and all the best!

  8. Ryner said

    This is a welcome feature, but it’s unfortunately related to something that has long frustrated me about the ‘browse’ function. How are the genres chosen? When trying to browse for the “Ages 0-2,” for example, it returns predominantly regular adult fiction as results. This renders age-specific browsing somewhat meaningless.

    Just now I tried to use the new ‘recent’ feature to, again, browse “Ages 0-2” and the results contained only adult fiction.

    Is there any way to make the genres truly reflect the content of the book?

  9. I’d have to agree with that. I don’t mind competing with other Bookmooch wish list members …sometimes I get lucky and sometimes I don’t …but that’s OK. Personally, I don’t think a person who wishes a book should be punished just because their request was posted later than others. Obviously, it’s just as important to them as it is to everyone else.

    However, to make a book that people are wishing for open to the general public only an hour after it’s posted is somewhat defeating the whole purpose of a wish list. Most people just don’t check their E-mail that often nor may they be in a position to order a book if they use Twitter …which, btw, I don’t.

    If a book is on someones wish list, I’d suggest the book remain hidden for 24 hours. Most people do check their E-mail at least once a day and this should give them plenty of opportunity to grab that book they’ve been waiting for.

    I think it’s a great way to implement this without overriding the wishlist system. This is a way to see new books that have just been added and might have been missed otherwise, not to check on a wishlist… I think I will just be searching when I want to look for books, following bookmooch might just fill out my twitter home page completely 😛
    thanks a lot for the new feature!

  11. Michelle said

    Absolutely wonderful! I’m looking forward to learning all if the “ins and outs” and discovering all that’s possible with this new feature. Already I have enjoyed doing some browsing – books that I would never “search for” or wishlist, piqued my interest. Thanks to all who have worked on and implemented it.

    Is there any way to improve the genres so that they truly reflect the content of the book?

  13. Rosemarie (Freecyclor) said

    Holy Now I’ll Never Get Off the Internet, Batman! This is very, very dangerous. Finally, a use for Twitter. Excellent work, John.

    Ryner has a good point. I really wonder whether Amazon deliberately scrambles the genre classification list it makes available. It would be wonderful to be able to select from a genre list when listing or browsing for a book. There is (or was) a pull down list when listing books, but it reverts to whatever – frequently incorrect – default was preset.

  14. I look forward to trying this out, if the genre categories are actually relevant to what they are supposed to be. Since we no longer get recommendations, this could help a bit. I don’t have time to just stare at lists of books being added (by the way the type font is very small and I cannot enlarge it)but if I can check for specific genres a couple of times a day that will help. Thanks as always.

  15. alice said

    This is wonderful, wonderful, great! I am loving it and I am sooo excited for it. Thanks so much thanks.

  16. Sophie said

    Wow! Thanks soooo much, John! That must have been extremely hard work – but definitely worth it 😉

  17. phil said

    I add my vote to those requesting a bit more delay if the book is on a wishlist. One day sounds reasonable to me.

    Other than that quibble, this is an AWESOME feature!!

  18. Thanks, John! I think this is a great new feature.

    For those of you concerned about how this affects wishlisters, as far as I know John has not changed the way wishlists work since this explanation: http://blog.bookmooch.com/2007/10/06/wishlist-notifications/.

    When a book is added there’s a two-minute delay to give the lister a chance to remove the book if it was listed by mistake. Then one wishlist notice is sent out every four hours until the book is no longer available or the number of wishlisters runs out. If a book is heavily wishlisted on 100 wishlists, then the book won’t show up on the new recently-added list until 401 hours after it was added. If a book is on 50 wishlists then it won’t be on the new list until 201 hours have passed. If a book is on 25 wishlists then it won’t appear for 101 hours. If it’s on 10 wishlists, it won’t appear for 41 hours. If it’s on 5 wishlists it won’t appear for 21 hours. Having few wishlisters indicates a smaller demand, so the books that will appear soon on the new list are less likely to be mooched because there’s less demand for them. I’d be surprised if the new list creates a problem for wishlisters.

    Jon

  19. If I recall correctly, when a book is on several wishlists, notification goes to one person chosen at random, and that person gets *4* hours before notification is sent to the next randomly chosen person on the list. Thus, I think it would make more sense for there to be a 4 hour lag before a book appeared on the recently added book list, rather than only 1 hour.

  20. A few minutes ago I said I doubted if the new list will negatively affect wishlisters. I guess the fact that a title shows up on the new list will increase a book’s chance of getting mooched, but since appearance on the list will only be after all wishlist notices have been sent, only books on very few wishlists will probably be affected.

  21. John S said

    Love the idea, looking forward to trying it out 🙂

  22. Joel G said

    Another new excellent feature! Kudos, John!

    I’ve long held off joining the Twitter crowd. This nails it for me. I’m diving in.

  23. Cindy said

    Wonderful feature! I suspect that swapping activity will increase as people use this feature to discover books they might not otherwise have mooched.

  24. ary29 said

    Thanks from a number of Italian moochers!!! We have a group on aNobii (http://www.anobii.com/groups/011fa4716d807f49a6/) and today the buzz was all about this new BM feature. It’s great to be able to browse new additions by country.

  25. tudorpot said

    Good feature- can it be added a feed to blog readers- ie LiveJournal?

    Nods re genre- if there was anything to be fixed a bookmooch it would be the difficulty searching either by genre or format. It is very difficult to search for audio books/CD or cassette and genres are next to impossible.

    thanks for all your hardwork

  26. Here is a question…if these are recently added books, how come one I tried to mooch as an experiment said the account had been inactive for 89 days?

    I have also tried searching in the genres, and there are no Letters in Letters, and a lot of fluff in Literature, etc. so the Advanced Search doesn’t really help.

    So if you can’t really search by genre, and watching books show up in “real time” also doesn’t work, not sure how this functions.

    • Mark Williams said

      Sarah,

      As John mentioned above, there will be a much better topics listed added very shortly.

      And the book you saw from 89 days ago would have been one just cancelled by the previous moocher, so newly available as of today — either that or the recently listed book was mooched before you got to it, leaving an older copy behind.

      • Sorry…WAY too complicated. I haven’t gotten a wish list book or a recommendation in months. So I am supposed to sit and watch a Twitter feed endlessly to see if there is something I want, all day long, and jump on it to discover the person hasn’t been active on the site for 3 months? I love BM…just did a foray to PaperBackSwap as a friend said I would find a lot more books I was looking for there. That was true…but the condition of the book was slimy and the professionalism worse. So I’m here…with almost 80 points to spend, and no way to search this site to find ’em if I don’t already know what I’m looking for. Used to get recommendations sometimes, but no more.

      • Geophile said

        Sarah,

        Here’s two things that you might try. For wishlist additions, try subscribing to your wishlist feed. On the wishlist page, click on the orange square beside your name, then when given the option, click on “Subscribe to this feed”. Then anytime you are on your wishlist page, you can click the orange button, and see if anything you want has been recently added. (I’ve acquired a lot of my wishlisted books by doing that frequently).

        Secondly, when searching for books on a topic, try going to the online catalogue of your Public Library (or even try using something like the Library of Congress). They are set up to search effectively and efficiently by subject. When you have identified a book you want, then go to Bookmooch and search for that specific book. I have found some great books that I never knew even existed, using this technique. (I never seem to have any difficulty using up my points) 😉

        Hope that this helps.

      • Ben said

        So I’m not the only one who hasn’t had a wishlist notification in months! I used to be able to mooch one or two books a month….

        I also have lots of points to spend, but nowhere to spend them. I have lots of books that I could list that I know are on other people’s wishlists, but I don’t need anymore points so I don’t list them.. I suspect that I’m not the only one with this problem.

        Personally, I feel like Bookmooch is dying in a rescission of excess points…

      • Angi said

        Ben, I sympathise. I’ve sent out masses of books – mostly abroad – but rarely identified ones I want, so I’ve got a pile of points too. I’m going to donate most of mine to The Reading Room. It won’t resolve my inbalance of mooches, but at least I have the pleasure of knowing a charity moocher will get the benefit.

      • Angi said

        Geophile, could you explain that feature? I’ve clicked on the orange square and subscribe now… so what should happen next? What should I be able to see? Sorry to sound so inept and technologically challenged – it sounds like a really useful feature, if only I could access it! Cheers!

      • Geophile said

        Hi Angi:

        If you’ve subscribed to the feed, then going into your wishlist page, then clicking on that orange button, should now give you a list of available books on your wishlist.

        I tried to find your user profile, so that I could try to walk you through it, but the only Angi that I could find was an inactive member in the UK with no books on their wishlist.

  27. Dara said

    I really like this new feature! I wish there was a topic for non-fiction and/or True Crime.

  28. SqueakyChu said

    Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven’t read the blog note yet, but I love the headline! 🙂

  29. Melissa said

    John, I don’t suppose you can tell me how I’m now meant to retain points for wishlist hits :))

  30. Miriam said

    WOW! What a great feature! I’d like to agree with the others though about the time delay for items that are on wishlists. I check my email a couple times a day and often miss a “wish” by a short time. Waiting an hour before posting to the Recently Added List will surely put me out of contention for all my wishes! To which, I will be sad :o(
    But… I’m not complaining.. Still Love, Love, Love my BookMooch!

  31. Heather19 said

    FINALLY a recently-added feature!! I’ve been wanting this for so long!!!!
    And, as a recent Twitter-converter, I like that it’s tied into Twitter and all the cool stuff you can do. John, you rock!

    • Misha479 said

      I used the new “recently added” feature and found a really interesting book which has led to a mutual mooch already.
      Many Thanks

  32. Geophile said

    What a cool feature!

    Something like browsing the reshelving cart at the library for book ideas (I have a weakness for that).

    I appreciate being able to narrow it by genre as well.

    Keep up the good work!

  33. Eylon Israely said

    Great new features! Are you by any chance planning on adding RSS feeds of these various streams? That would make it easier to integrate into my trusty my6sense.com super intuitive RSS reader 🙂

  34. I posted two comments yesterday, but only the second one showed up. In my first comment I had a link to an explanation John had posted about how the wishlist works. I guess the link caused the comment to be blocked by a spam filter.

    Unless John has changed the way wishlist notifications work without posting about it, one wishlist notice goes out every four hours until either all the wishlisters have been notified or the book is no longer available. So a heavily-wishlisted book on say, 100 wishlists, will not appear on the new list until 401 hours have passed. A book on 25 wishlists will not appear for 101 hours. A book on 10 wishlists won’t appear for 41 hours. Books on very few wishlists will show up sooner, which may not give the wishlisters much time to mooch, but the low number of wishlisters indicates low demand for the book, which probably means the book is less likely to get mooched by people seeing it on the list.

    Jon

    • Angi said

      Why aren’t all the wishlisters notified simultaneously, as soon as possible after listing? Presumably the book will appear on the owner’s inventory as soon as it’s listed. So a speculative moocher will pick it up faster than someone who has it on their wishlist and is expecting to be notified when a copy becomes available. I had no idea that a book on my wishlist might become available, but I wouldn’t be notified for ten days or more. 😦

    Dear John, great stuff! Looking forward to using this cool new feature. Best, JJA

    This is a really great feature, I like seeing new features added to bookmooch.Keep up the good work. Pat.

  37. Zjanette said

    It is great!
    Just two things. I hope that one day Cookbooks will be a genre at BM and I know it would make a lot of people happy.
    Second is that a book shows up one hour after the wish list email. That is a very short time for us at the other side of the ocean. The book will be gone before you can open your mail in the morning.

  38. Ruambo said

    Great!
    but countries are not in alphabetical order
    (in the spanish version of bookmooch, http://es.bookmooch.com)
    “España” appears between “Sudáfrica” y “Suecia”
    maybe alphabetical order onbly in english

    Nice tweeks!

  40. Sharon Epperson said

    No Mystery/Thriller category? When almost all I read is Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror and Mystery/Thrillers, that seems a large handicap. Not actually complaining you understand – I’ve wished for this type of tweak for just AGES. Thank you, Thank you.

  41. re: Did I understand correctly that books will show up on the “Recently added books” page one hour after an email has been to people on the wish list?

    It will should up two hours after the LAST wishlisted email goes out. If there are 10 people on the wishlist, each email will go out every 2 hours, and the “newly added books” feed would get the book 22 hours after the book was added, if it’s not been mooched or reserved yet.

Thus, I think it would make more sense for there to be a 4 hour lag before a book appeared on the recently added book list, rather than only 1 hour.

    I didn’t remember what we all came up with a few years ago when this was discussed, so I checked the source code to the wishlist feature, and…

    two hours

    is the lag between each wishlist email notification.

  43. Thanks from a number of Italian moochers!!! We have a group on aNobii (http://www.anobii.com/groups/011fa4716d807f49a6/) and today the buzz was all about this new BM feature. It’s great to be able to browse new additions by country.

    Fantastic! Helping non-USA countries make better use of the books that appear in their country was one of the big reasons for adding the feature.

    -john

  44. re: Good feature- can it be added a feed to blog readers- ie LiveJournal?

    There is a web site:
    http://www.loudtwitter.com/

    that will let you post a twitter feed into your livejournal blog.

  45. re: Great new features! Are you by any chance planning on adding RSS feeds of these various streams? That would make it easier to integrate into my trusty my6sense.com super intuitive RSS reader

    Yes, Twitter provides an RSS feed of the “newly added books to bookmooch”.

    Go to
    http://twitter.com/bookmooch

    and click on “rss feed”

    However, twitter doesn’t provide RSS feeds of the searches (ie, just romance books)

    -john

      Is this the same for following on twitter? I get a follow button for the full list, but only a save search button for the UK books.

      I use echofon in firefox to read tweets and I don’t think it has an option to follow search results.

  46. re: but countries are not in alphabetical order
    (in the spanish version of bookmooch, http://es.bookmooch.com)
    “España” appears between “Sudáfrica” y “Suecia”
    maybe alphabetical order onbly in english

    My apologies, you’re right, I’ll fix that. They’re sorted in English, and *then* translated by the software.

    I’ve been skimming through this new feature for a few days now, and already successfully mooched 2 books with it. Thanks for implementing, John, as well as the updated genre/subject listings mentioned in the later blog post.

    Its striking how many romance novels are being constantly loaded into BM.

    John,
    The features you have added for non-USA countries are great! However, is there any chance we could have a profile feature to only see books (specifically “related book recommendations”) in only languages we choose?

    I think this new feature is awesome but I do have a question. I’ve noticed this before and this feature brought it to my attention again. Why is there no African-American genre? Urban-fiction? I can’t search by either genre at all on Bookmooch yet any other site has this available.
    I think this could be helpful for a lot of people. Maybe not the majority of members, but members nontheless……

    This is a superb feature, and one I’m now using frequently. It’s particularly appreciated by those of us who live in a country where we can’t easily acquire books in our native language. In my case, I live in France and only mooch books in English.

    However, not all the books I list are showing up as new – even after a couple of days supposing they’d found their way into the wishlist sort. How many more are slipping through the net? Is there a programme to check the reliability of the list?

    I’d like to request a featre, though I’m not sure this is the right place.
    When looking at my wishlist, I see moochable copies, only to find out on the next age that the REAL
    moochable copies are 0. (“Not to your country” or “Account on hold”.) If it is easy to twitch I’d really love to see these not showing any longer on the wishlist… (It’s deceiving.)
    Thank you for consideration,
    Martyna
