Customizing Your Discover Feed
A how-to guide to easily find Bites that match your preferences.

January 19, 2018

Customizing your preferences is the best way to discover new Bites and new authors. When new members join Book+Main Bites today, they are asked to select their favorite subgenres and a max flame rating {1 to 5, where 5 is the hottest} during the registration process. Then, when they first enter the site, they are taken to their Discover feed and any Bites that match those preferences will appear in their feed.

Choose your favorite subgenres. Choose your preferred maximum flame rating.

However, those that registered early on will recall a different registration process of selecting five authors—which is no longer a requirement of the site. For those that registered before the change, you too can customize your Discover feed. Here’s how:

1. Go to your profile and click ‘Edit Profile & Settings’. {On mobile, click “Edit” to access your profile settings.}

Edit Profile & Settings. Edit Max Flame Rating and Preferred Subgenres.

2. Once inside your Profile Settings, select your Max Flame Rating {you will not see Bites rated higher than your max, even if you are following a particular author} and select your Preferred Subgenres—pick as many as you’d like from our list of 18.

3. Recently discovered a new interest? If your reading preferences change at any time, you can easily update your settings to have your Discover feed reflect those new interests.
