Here are the suggestions that I sent to LivingSocial for their VirtualBookshelf application on Facebook:
- Create a radio button for "Would like to give it away."
- Allow me to see those friends in my area that own a book that's in my "Want to read" list and vice versa.
- If none of my friends want to read a book I'm willing to give away, then allow me to post it to a bulletin board in the area or suggest people I don't know that are local and have that book in their "Want to read" list.
- Allow me to rank my "Want to read" list so that it's easy for me to grab the books at the top of my list when I want to order online or when I'm in the bookstore.
