When did I upload this book?
Your book's details now include the date you uploaded it!
Down in that detail-filled corner of the each book page, you'll now find a date entry letting you know when the book was added to the owner's library.
This is the first step in displaying more reading activity data on each book's page.
There's more to come
Keep an eye out for more book details appearing in that particular spot soon, as we add in additional info from your book files. For example, how about

Happy Reading,
Zip Upload & Minor Style Updates
As you may have seen, the Zip Upload feature had been having problems since we migrated Libreture and updated a lot of the software. It's now fully-working again.
Libreture's developer, Ashley, fixed the
Zip Upload
process itself last week, allowing everyone to upload compressed batches of books in one go. But the e-mail report readers receive afterwards still wouldn't work. The report details what books you successfully added and if there were any duplicates or issues.
It turns out updating the software that handles the Zip Uploads broke a workaround for a bug in the older version of the software that's since been fixed. Yay!
Interface Updates
I've fixed and improved a number of interface elements across the site.
The most obvious are the
Status Menu
on each book page, the position and order of fields on the
page - this should make uploading your books a smoother process, and adding easy-to-find buttons to the library menu to things like your Activity Feed, OPDS & Privacy settings.
More interface changes will follow soon, as I standardise on a new look & feel to Libreture.
Feedback, Feature Requests & the Roadmap
Being more transparent at Libreture is one thing. Listening to readers is something else.
That's why you can now suggest new features, report bugs, and help inform the Libreture roadmap.
We've introduced a suite of new
tools to help with this:
  • Feature Requests
  • Bug Reporting
  • Roadmap
  • Changelog
This is all to say that I want to build a thriving community around reading ebooks, supporting independent ebookshops, authors & publishers, and each other.
New Status Page
After moving Libreture to a new server and updating almost all the software, Ashley, Libreture's Developer, has fixed the underlying issues. But as new features launch, I want to be sure you're aware of anything that could impact on your digital reading - you know, that
most important thing
So, say hello to the new
Status Page
The status page is the place to find out if Libreture is running properly, and learn about any planned maintenance or issues that may be affect your enjoyment of the site.
We've Moved!
Libreture now lives in the Netherlands!
Me? I'm still in "
" Cumbria...
With possible changes to the UK's stance on GDPR and online privacy, I felt it best to ensure the site itself was located in the EU.
The move was part of our migration to new hosting providers. Our new hosts, the fantastic Mythic Beasts, are an independent UK-based hosting company. As well as hosting the Libreture server, Mythic Beasts also manage it. They keep it in tip-top condition, ensuring you have safe, secure, and constant access to your ebook cloud library.
