Notes for a Personal, Integrated Library

I’ve been using Goodreads for a few years now to track my reading but more to catalogue books I want to read. The more I use it, the more I realize that it’s not the tool I’m looking for (Jedi spell on myself).

Today I found some alternatives tools:

  1. LibraryThing(of which Amazon is part owner). And their minimalist and polished interphase
  2. TinyCat
  3. TheStoryGraph
  4. indiebookclub(born of the IndieWebCamp)

And some great people with thoughts on the idea of a living library and the human design required to keep one.

  1. Sarah Manavis
  2. Gregor Morrill(IndieWebRing and maintainer of indibookclub)
  3. Tom Critchlow and his “Web of Books” page.
