Every morning I go through the same routine of two completely unnecessary steps when entering what I read the night before:

1) Even though I’m never reading more than one book at the same time, the GoodReads app forces me to “select” that one book manually. Even though I’m opening the app via the “Update Progress” shortcut, where the app could easily be smart enough to realize that there is only one book for which I can update the progress.

2) After entering the new progress value, I’m thrown back to the selection screen from before. With the same data from before. To make sure my data was actually saved and not sacrificed to the gods of package loss, I have to manually refresh myself.
