We support any type of book. The individual lists can be a mix of any book type, so we have plenty of authors that mix fiction, non-fiction, and children's or YA into a list.
Dedicated Children's and YA Section
Toward Winter 2022, we will be adding individual sections for children's books, young adult books, middle-grade books, and so on. I have a 5-year-old at home, so this is near and dear to my heart (he also asks me about this feature weekly 😊).
There are some significant costs and technical challenges around doing this. For example, to get access to book metadata to build a section like this is expensive (licensed in Spring 2022). Plus, we must build all the technology to pipe that in and use it.
Dedicated Fiction Section
Like Children's books, we need access to the same book metadata mentioned above (plus all the costs to build a system to handle that). I aim to launch genre-specific sections in Winter 2022 as we build all that.
I will also add features so that if you are looking at books about "World War 2", you can filter to see only fiction or non-fiction, as well as different genres like "Mystery" or "Historical Fiction."
Do you want to help us build these features faster?
I launched a membership program for founding members at the urging of authors and readers. 100% of the money goes toward developing new features and my goal of hiring a full-time developer in 2023 (currently, we only have one part-time developer).
