Tokens are spent on creating and joining book clubs. You spend one token to join and two tokens to create your own book club. When you sign up to Novellic you are given 10 free tokens to use within the app and in the future we will be providing ways through which you can earn more should you need them. In the meantime, if you are low on tokens then please contact us to request more.

Your Novellic friendships are formed in two ways: By joining a book club you are automatically friended with other members so you can interact directly, recommending books to them, inviting them to join other clubs and sending them private messages. The second way you form friendships on Novellic is by favouriting books – other users who have favourited the same books are added to your Friends list helping you forge bonds through the shared love of the same books.

Visitors to your public profile on Novellic can get a better idea of what sort of reader you are by viewing your Favourite Books. Additionally, by choosing your favourite reads we help you make new friends by connecting you to other readers who have favourited the same title. Lastly, by telling us what your favourite books are and what you’re planning to read next (Wish List), you help us curate a better book store experience for you.

The Personal Wish List is your own private TBR pile – a place to keep track of all the books you would like to read or have been recommended by friends or other users.

There are two ways to share a book recommendation with a friend. You can either long press the book cover image or from within the book description page click on the share button in the top right corner of the screen. From either of those menus click on the Recommend to Friends button and then either click on the friend’s name or alternatively enter their email address in the search box before clicking Done to send the recommendation.

Sometimes a book description isn’t enough to give you an idea of what it’s about and we’re strong believers that the best recommendations and descriptions come from readers who love the books and know their content inside out. Did a book make you cry? Do you want us to know it’s about zombies? Leave tags for other readers to get a better idea of the book’s contents. Tags also help us serve you better book recommendations. and are pulled into the personalized bookstores as curated boxes that group books from across genres under common tags.
