Adding Suggestion books

The Suggestion books folder is a special folder.  It contains books that you'd like to suggest to the Club for reading by using the oobSeer™.  

The oobSeer™ goes through all the Suggestion books and picks one randomly to be added to the Club books. Read more about it here.

 To add a book to your Suggestions folder, 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 Suggestions panel (again, see above).

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

Search for your book

Let's say you wanted to add The Kite Runner, byKhaled Hosseini.

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 Suggestions folder.

Good job! The book is now available for you to view its details and to be selected by the oobSeer™.

You can also make changes to it through the Advanced Editor.
