Goodreads question/vent...

I don't believe there is a way to do this but I wish there was a way to sort your shelves by genre. When I am looking for a book in a certain genre, especially something that is on my to-read list I have to scroll and click on a book to find out the genre. I just wish there was a way to filter your books while browsing Goodreads...there isn't right?

  • Grr I just tried and I can't seem to figure it out either. I don't see an option to sort by genre or author or any sorting...maybe I'm doing it wrong?

    Yeah this is the thing...I don't think there is but it would be nice :-) when in your shelves you can sort by author, rating, date read, title etc but nothing about genre.

  • You can sort by a bunch of things...author, page numbers, title, etc. but not genre as far as I know.

  • I created genre bookshelves on GR for this exact reason. I hate that I have to manually do it, but it's better than nothing I guess.

  • I hate having to manually do it, but I also think there are too many books that could fit into a wide variety of genres.  Does Jenny Lawson write Memoir or Autobiography or Humor?  What makes something literary fiction?  Etc, etc, etc.  I mean, look at our discussion of The Three.  Everyone sees genre differently and it can get too complicated.
