How can I improve my searches?

It’s very simple. You can search for any word, not only author, title or ISBN. Of course more generic is the keyword and more books will be listed. To limit and refine your search you can use the filters that you can find in the left menu above the search results. A menu will allows you to limit your search to the author’s name, title, or only to books in Italian, or just to ebooks or ebook that you can read for free.

How do I get personalized recommendations for books?

Every time you enter a book in your favorites list, Bùcs verify, through a recommendation algorithm, if there are books of authors, subjects compatible with what you’ve saved as your favorite. If there are, or rather if the algorithm is able to find them, you will see on the recommendation section.

Can I read ebooks on Bùcs?

No. Or at least not yet. We’re working on it. For now we offer you the opportunity to read the previews or the complete book through Google Play Book. Tap on Read button (Limited Preview or Full View) in the detail of the book. You will be catapulted on Google Play for reading (on the first access you will need to download the App indicated by Google).
