What I'm saying (ranting) is: when I read a book should be a boolean value, not a timestamp.
"When did you read the book?"
(Any star wars book I have read or will have read in the future will be registered as being read "a long time ago" regardless of whether I _just_ finished it)
Hot take: I should be able to register a book not only as read "that year" but as read "that decade". Not to mention the special value "a long time ago".
I read Harry Potter somewhere between 2000 and 2010, and that's a precise as I need it to be.
On the topic of registering books I've read:
Asking for a date is useless and bullshit, if I want to add my previously read books. I have no idea when I read Dune for the first time or how many times I've read it, or when I read it last. All that is completely irrelevant to the fact that I've read and enjoyed the book (multiple times!)
Let me be imprecise when tracking stuff, please!
@Tak I was missing a kind of "add book" button that would then let me search for a book, but turns out I had it backwards. I had to search for a book AND THEN add it to my stash, pile, whatever.
Green Roofs Could Help Improve Solar Panel Efficiency.
...the roof loaded with greenery was 3.6% more efficient than the bare roof over the course of the experiment. The difference between the two was as much as 20% at peak generating times.
I'm not apparently level four and have found a cool hat. I know it's cool, because the game slaps a fancy little "cool" marker on it.
