Good reads!

by

From Goodreads:

Have you ever wanted a better way to:

  • See what your friends are reading.
  • Keep track of what you’ve read and what you’d like to read.
  • Get great book recommendations from people you know.
  • Answer book trivia and collect your favorite quotes.
Seems like this is quite an active site. There should be more obvious ways to get the books you read into the system though. How about scanning the bar code, like Librarything does (I think)? Or how about a way to feed photos of your library and have it OCR/do-whatever-number-of-smart-tricks-is-required to recognize the book you own? Or integration in social sites like iRead?
For me, amazon still works best, because there is no overhead in keeping it up-to-date about what I have bought. One of the reasons that I know it works for me is that it often suggest books to me that I have bought through other means. And yes, amazon has a nice ‘i own it’ button to let it know about that…
In any case, snowflaked reading recommendations are always welcome! Maybe you’d like to add some of yours?
