Adding Club books

Club books are the heart of the app. These are the books you and your members agree to read, comment and review.

Books can only be added to the Club by a member with admin rights. Usually this will be be person that registered your Club with OOB.

To add a book to the Club, follow these steps.

  1. Login to the OOB, and go to the Books page (see above).
  2. Click on the Add Book button in the Club panel (again, see above).

This will display the Add book window in the Club panel :

Search for your book

Let's say you wanted to add Wild, by Cheryl Strayed. 

Just enter those details into the Title and Author fields, then click the Search button.

The OOB will return all the books it can find that meet the details you entered along with how good the match was. In this case it just found one, with a 100% match.

Not Listed?

Note that if the OOB can't find your book in its database, you can still create it by clicking the Not listed? Create your book button. This will create the book for you and send a message to our editors to find the book and update the database.

Pick your book

Click on the more link to show details of the book...

If it's the right book, click the Add button to add it to the Club, or Cancel to start over.  

If you click Add, the screen will clear and you will see the book listed in your Private folder.

The book is now available to all Club members so they can view the book details, and add comments, reviews and ratings.

If you have admin priviledges, you can also make changes to it through the Advanced Editor.
