Luzme

This is a web site that does the same thing that Inkmesh does. I have not been able to go to Inkmesh for some time now so I have sought a replacement, Luzme. It also allows you to register and add books to a want list so that you do not have to enter all the information in to the site multiple times.

I will keep this forum infromed about all those great gems of web sites that I find and/or run into

Luzme has representation here on Mobilereads and usually keeps us informed on any changes or updates. For the life of me I cannot remember the screen name. Chalk iut up to CRS syndrome.

In addition, it is a great site.

How do you get Luzme to update the prices? Listing the price from Dec 24th isn't very useful. Also, they haven't fixed the graph misalignment issue.

I just upload my Wish List for Amazon and wait until Luzme notifies me of a change in price of a book I am watching. I rarely go to the site otherwise.

That's what I'm referring to. If Luzme doesn't update their listed prices, they are unable to email you price changes.

But I do get updated from Luzme. I get updates for Amazon, Diesel, OmniLit, and Apple. Do you not get those?

Edit: Also Kobo & Barnes & Noble

One more edit: I've gotten 3 emails from the time I first wrote this message.

I think this is me you're referring to

Glad you like it!

Sorry if it's been a bit slow recently; got another mention on Lifehacker and the deluge of traffic slowed things down a bit for a while. But I think it's back to normal now.

Please drop me a DM if there's a problem you're still having; I'd like to know about it!

Rachel

Yep, it was you I was referring to Rachel! Glad to see you are still around.

The site still is great for me. I'm always adding to my Kindle wishlist and the site always keeps me informed on price changes.

Hi Rachel,

I have a separate wish list for my Kindle books. Does Luzme search all of my public wish lists? It has 84 books on it at the moment, so I'd prefer not to add them one by one.

Thanks!

Something that's annoying me about Luzme at the moment is that when I'm signed up to get notifications of new releases from an author, I get notified of every single release, even if it's the same book over and over (different editions/versions/countries/formats). It would be nice - and I realise that this would take smart tech - to have an option to only get a notification of the first release of any particular book.

Yes, it does. All your public wishlists, in all the countries you've signed up for. So if for example, you're in Australia but also use Amazon US and UK, it'll search them all.

By default, you should only be getting one notification per new book.

My guess is that when you're getting the duplicates, the system doesn't yet know that Book A is the same as Book B. It's not possible to always automate that match, because quite often the book titles/authors/isbns are completely different.

But please send me an example the next time this happens, (email me at rachel at luzme dot com) and I'll check out whether it's working as it should.

thanks
Rachel

I can give you one example off the top of my head - I was just notified that Wintergirls is "New from Laurie Halse Anderson" in June and now available for pre-order. Wintergirls came out in 2009. Another recent pre-order notification was for Two Boys Kissing (David Levithan), which is less old but still last year's release.

You've done a great job with the site, Rachel. I've saved a lot of money!

If I could make one feature request, it would be to specify the shelf name for Goodreads integration. By default it could remain "to-read", but since I already own many of the books on my to-read list, I would create a shelf containing only the books for which I want to monitor the price and it would cut down on the number of emails. I hope this is possible.
