Goodreads adds rereading feature

reread_mainIf you are a Goodreads user who like to reread your favorite books, here’s some good news: Goodreads had finally added a feature to track rereading a book. This has been a highly requested feature on the site (I’ve personally requested it on several occasions).

With the new feature, you  can add a separate set of start and finish dates each time you re-read a book. The rereads also now count towards Reading Challenges as well.

The new feature was announced yesterday on the site’s blog and is in the process of rolling out to all users.

To see if you have the new feature, go to the page of a book you’ve read on Goodreads, click Edit in the My Activities section and scroll to the dates read section. It will say if the rereads are enabled. To use the feature, click the Add Read Date button. (See screenshot.)

If you have been keeping track of your rereads via the “Number of Times Read” option or by using different editions to track rereads, the system will automatically add those to the section. I am going to try adding them in after the fact, since I did not track rereads because I could not enter dates.

Since I have actually missed completing more than one yearly reading challenge because I couldn’t count rereads, I am really excited to see this feature implemented. How about you?
