Given that I often add 10 or more books at a time and will have 4 books open, it would be nice if they added a "new additions" shelf which would show newly added books until you started reading them when they would automagically be removed from the list and not add them to the home page.
I can understand the logic to put one newly bought book right there in the home screen (pushing away the book(s) that you're currently reading), but only if that's the way you use the device. How many people are actually happy with that? Who buys a book or sideloads a book after
they've finished reading their current reads? Well, maybe some people but not me and not anyone that I know (of). Also, I never ever put on just one
new book, it's always in a batch of a whole series or a bunch of books. It just doesn't make sense to have all of those be put on the home screen, pushing current reads away. I'm never going to read all the new books right away and all at once.
- Make a "newly added" shelf and leave the home screen alone, like DNSB suggests
- Make it a user preference to put new additions onto the home screen or not
