How to | Create Exclusive Shelves on Goodreads

When you add books on Goodreads, you are given three exclusive shelves by default: read, currently-reading, and to-read.


These three shelves are "exclusive" shelves meaning your book can only be placed on one of them. (You can't have 'read' it and be currently-read'ing it at the same time.)

Did you know you can create more "exclusive" shelves? Now you can have the books you actually own on your to-read shelf and the books you want to own on another!


Here's how:

On the menubar at the top of Goodreads, click "My Books".


*As you can see in this screenshot, Goodreads is not a great place to send me a message! I likely will not read get it... :)

Toward the bottom of the left hand menu (below all your custom shelves), click Add Shelf. Type in the name of the new shelf (ex. wishlist) and click add. (If you already have a wishlist shelf or a shelf you would like to use, you can skip this step.)

     


Back at the top of the left hand menu, click the "edit" link by "bookshelves".


This edit screen is where you can make your new shelf - or any existing shelf - exclusive. You have other options for your shelf as well. Feature will replace your "favorites" shelf at the top of your profile (only one shelf can be your feature), sortable gives you the option to number them (the way your to-read shelf does), sticky shelves "are sorted first on your books and on your profile", exclusive makes your shelf mutually exclusive, and you should check recs if you want Goodreads to make recommendations based on that particular shelf.

Check the box for exclusive to make your shelf mutually exclusive.


You will notice I also have a mutually exclusive shelf called "on-hold". I use this shelf to clean up my currently-reading shelf. This is for books that I'm not actively reading but are not DNFs. If you are a reviewer, you could even have a sortable "for-review" shelf to organize and sort review copies.

Once you set your new shelf as exclusive, it will begin appearing as an option when you add a book to Goodreads. This is what I see when I add a book:


I hope this helps you further organize your TBR pile and wishlist!

Are your TBR and wishlist books mixed on Goodreads? Do you use exclusive shelves?

  2. Jennifer, I'll love you forever and ever.

    Okay, maybe that's a bit creepy, but you get my meaning: I've been despairing of real order in my shelves because I didn't like the secondary system (gave me biased ideas about what I owned, had to buy, had to wait for...)

    I'm so putting this in motion. Thanks!

  4. I noticed i can add shelves and I started to do some re-organisation, but I didn't know exactly what setting a bookshelf to exclusive means. It looks very helpful. I guess i have some more organizing to do:) Great post! Thanks!

  8. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Osita can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family and I are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Osita. If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his Email: (drositamiraclespell@gmail.com) or WhatsApp him (+15088120454)

I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much.

  10. Dr. Ige Ajayi is simply the best spell caster and helper. My name is Peggy Bond, Out of respect for you and your spells I must make this testimony know to all. I've been to other spell casters without seeing any result.I just wished I came to you earlier, i got the best from you. My ex husband was gone for a year and I went everywhere and other spell casters for help but no result until my friend introduce me to Dr. Ige Ajayi. After the Love Spell was done, I finally got a calls from him in 24 hours like Dr. Ige Ajayi assured me. His spells worked wonders and my husband is back with full of love. It's a miracle! He suddenly came back with flowers saying that i should forgive him, i was truly flabbergasted and shocked when my husband kneel down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back. I'm really short of words and joyful, you are a God sent to me and my entire family. And now i am a joyful woman once again. Thank you so much Dr. Ige Ajayi. To everyone who is looking for a real spell caster should contact Dr. Ige Ajayi On: drigeajayi@gmail.com You can also Whatsapp him on +234 (80)-5739-3990

  13. How I Got My Husband back…................ It’s a privilege to share this miraculous testimony to the world. I’m Victoria Wilhite from El Centro CA. My husband divorced me 4 months back and I have been filled with remorse for I didn’t know what to do to amend issues with my husband. I searched for help on the internet on how I could get help in my marriage and I discovered great testimonies about Dr Iyare who has helped so many people fix their broken relationships. I got in touch with him and behold, Dr Iyare told me that he will prepare a spell for me that will bring back my husband. I was skeptical but I had no other option but to work with him. 2 days later, my husband called me to say that he’s coming back home and from that day till this moment, we have been living peacefully. He is back now with so much love and caring. today i am glad to let you all know that this spell caster has the power to bring lovers back and the most surprising thing is that our love is very strong now, every day is happiness and joy. and There is nothing like being with the man you love. I will highly recommend Dr Iyare to anyone one out there who needs help whatsoever. If you have any problem contact Dr Iyare, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you!!. kindly contact Dr Iyare on his email address at dr.iyarespelltemple@hotmail.com or WhatsApp him on +2348119275145

  14. Good Day Everyone! Am here to testify what this great spell caster done for me. i never believed in a spell caster, until when i was tempted to try it. I and my wife have been having a lot of problem living together, she will always make me unhappy because she have fallen in love with another man outside our Matrimony, i tried my best to make sure that my wife stop seeing this man but the more i talk to her the more she makes me feel sad, so my marriage was already leading to a divorce because she no longer gives me attention. So with all this pain and agony, i decided to contact this spell caster i met online,to see if things can work out between me and my wife again.Dr Ibinoba Omion told me that my wife is really under a great spell that she have been charmed by some Dark magic, so he told me that he was going to make all things normal again. He did the spell on my wife and after 14 days my wife changed completely, she even apologized.I really want to thank Dr Ibinoba Omion for bringing back my wife.
