After a long hiatus, I picked up reading again in 2021 thanks to my local library's online portal. I've been noting a few aspects that I'd like to see differently - so voila, a little library app featuring a few of the ideas that have been floating around in my mind:

📚 Highlighting Popular and New books on the front browse page

📚 Encouraging a community through the promotion of a book club

📚 Including ratings and reviews when a book is selected (I'm terribly picky with books, and love to know if other people deemed it worth a read)

📚 Adding a "Similar Books" section within search - allowing for a more convenient user experience and increasing the likelihood of continuous usage and engagement.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

PS. I've included some of my favourite reads from last year, and a few on my bookmarked list of to-reads. If you have any similar book recs I'm all ears!! :)
