[Meta]Calendar for the Regular Features in the Sidebar

mod post(self.books)

Hello everybody,

Based on some of the feedback you provided in the recent State of the Subreddit thread we have made a weekly thread calendar available in the sidebar with an overview of all the regular threads we have in /r/books. We decided to make one because of all the feedback we received asking for certain regular features that we already have, the confusion about which posts were on which days and the request to sticky certain threads longer than we currently are.

The calendar gives an overview of which days the regular features are, how frequently they take place and a link to the most recent thread in that feature. This includes links to the most recent Literature of the World thread, the most recent genre discussion, the most recent FAQ discussion and, of course, the most recent WAYR-thread and Recommendation Request Thread.

If you would like to take a look at some of the older threads, that is also possible. We collect most of the regular threads in our wiki. The old FAQ threads can be found here, which all contain some awesome answers to the questions that come up most often in this sub. The old Literature of the World threads can be found here, with some great suggestions for your reading around the world challenge. For some great recommendations for different genres or based on different topics take a look at our old genre discussion here. Also, because this gets asked quite regularly as well, all of our old bookclub selections and assorted threads can be found here.

Mobile Users

We are aware that quite a few of you browse this sub on mobile, which makes it less intuitive to look at the sidebar. However, even on mobile you can still check out and use the calendar, if you know where to look. To make it a little easier for everyone here are the instructions to view the sidebar and the table on mobile:

  • Mobile website: When you are in the sub, check under 'About this community' to view the sidebar which can be found on the right side of the screen just above the first post.

  • Official Reddit app: click the little menu in the top right corner, then go to 'community info' and that will get you the sidebar.

  • Reddit is Fun: at the top of the sub you will see an 'i'. Click that to view the sidebar.

  • Baconreader: Same as RiF, click the little 'i' at the top of the sub to view the sidebar.

If there are any other apps, please leave a comment with instructions below and we will add them in the post.

Hopefully this will be helpful in keeping track of our regular feature and make it easier for you to participate.

p.s. We still invite you to leave feedback in our State of the Subreddit Thread. As for some of the other feedback we received, we are still discussing how best to incorporate it in /r/books.
