      Interesting (now discontinued) reading list product from Levenger that in previous generations may have been covered by a commonplace book but was quickly replaced by digital social products (bookmark applications or things like Goodreads.com or LibraryThing.com).

      Presently I keep a lot of this sort of data digitally myself using either/both: Calibre or Zotero.

      Added this code snippet to my /Templates/scripts folder in Obsidian.

      To use, copy a book URL from Goodreads, then run the Goodreads template and it will paste the URL from the clipboard to return the metadata of the book into the current note as frontmatter

    1. Goodreads lost my entire account last week. Nine years as a user, some 600 books and 250 carefully written reviews all deleted and unrecoverable. Their support has not been helpful. In 35 years of being online I've never encountered a company with such callous disregard for their users' data.

      A clarion call for owning your own data.

    1. For the company that takes Goodreads' crown, “the possibilities are so much greater”. 

      With discovery and aggregation, the possibilities are really just being bought out again by Amazon and stagnating.

      We need some monopoly busting here to help real competion.
