We Need Your Help, 50 Book Pledgers!

Can you believe it’s almost mid-November? As the holidays approach and the New Year draws closer, we’re looking ahead to January. Why? Because of the 2015 50 Book Pledge!

In 2014, we introduced great new features to the 50 Book Pledge, including Friends’ Lists, Featured Readers, a profile function, plus new great badges and giveaways! In addition to new features, we saw the number of readers taking the pledge double, allowing us to connect with many more readers across Canada (and the world!). It was a great year.

  1. I suggest posting number of pages read also. I look at the bookshelves of the reader, who has read the most books, and I see mainly short, short, short children’s books. No comparison to a person, who reads many long novels, that are over 600 to 800 pages long, such as the Outlander series, Ken Follet’s series or Stephen King’s books.

  2. I love the 50 book pledge so keep up the great work! I’d love to see an App I could use on my phone to add books. If you could create an App, a feature similar to Indigo’s scanning feature would be awesome because then users could ensure they have the correct edition on the first try (I’m an edition geek and always want the correct one referenced). You could also have the App send notifications about contests, new feature reads, etc. Please create an App!

    And I haven’t been able to delete a shelf I initially created but no longer need, even though it’s now empty so it would be nice if that could be fixed.

    1. Hi Steph! Thank you for the great feedback!

      A note on your shelf concern: there should be a big “X” that appears beside your custom shelves that allow you to delete them once all of the books have been removed. Give it a try and let me know if it works 🙂


  3. More badge types… they’re fun to shoot for! Also, it shouldn’t matter which cover/edition of a new book one reads to get the “Title-Specific” badge. (e.g., The Little Old Lady Who Broke All The Rules). Great job, TSR!

  4. It would be great if you guys could fix the friends’ list in the 2015 50 Book Pledge. Sadly, it hasn’t worked properly in the past 6 months or so. When I first sign in and look at the home page, all of my friends are listed. Then after exploring the site, when I come back to the home page, only about half of my friends are listed (the rest of the list has disappeared). So I never get to explore what all my friends are reading. If this could be fixed, that would be great!

    I love the 50 Book Pledge, so keep up the great work!
