Almost Perfect

I love everything about this app. Very useful and concise.
However one suggestion I have is that when search results show as a list, and then I click on a result to read more about it, I would like to resume from where I clicked on the search results rather than scrolling down again to skip the results I already scrolled over.

Few easy suggestions!

I love the app but here are some few suggestions I have

1. For some reason I can’t paste things in the search function. I want to copy and paste a title instead of writing it but it doesn’t work.

2. Also when I start typing I don't get suggestions that would match, which would make it easier to search titles. Similar to the search engine on Libby.

3. Would love if there was an option to add a book to a wishlist or want to read list.

4. Could there be a service where you borrow a book from the app and then it comes delivered to your home? Sometimes I want to read something but I don’t have time to go to the library/ my house is far.
