Can't Keep Up? Here's a New Way to Simplify Your To-Be-Read List

If you’re like me, your to-be-read pile on Goodreads is OUT OF CONTROL. There are so many books that try to keep track of so I won’t miss their publication date in the future.

With so many books in this list, I do just that – lose track of books being published that I want to read. Because I’ve said so many times, “Wait, when was this published?! How did I miss it?”, I’ve come up with a solution: Book Notify.

A New Way to Simplify Your To-Be-Read List

book notify


Book Notify is a page on Read.Breathe.Relax. and allows you to search for upcoming books, add them to a list and receive an email notification the day the book is published. Easy!

And, if you’re a book blogger, you can check the “I’m a book blogger” box to receive one additional notification 3 months in advance of when a book is published to remind you to request an ARC from the publisher!

Because I thought other readers and bloggers could find a use for this service, my husband (a web developer) created this functionality and helped me figure out a way to share it with you!

As a disclaimer, I wanted to share that: Your email will only be use to send you notifications about books. You will not receive any emails from Read.Breathe.Relax. If you would like to receive emails from Read.Breathe.Relax. with book reviews and other related content, subscribe here.

I’m open to feedback and suggestions, so please feel free to contact me and let me know what you think, if you like it or what other features you might like to see from Book Notify!
