@pimoore I’m very impressed at what Manton has done with Bookshelves. I’m not sure I can use it though. I know what I’m reading at any one time — or if I’ve forgotten, there’s a good reason for that! Every time I make a list of things I want to read, it comes out slightly different. If I included everything, it would be discouragingly long! And you’re right about the duplication: two overlapping (though not identical) Want-to-read lists are at least one too many. Better just to try to surprise myself. As for a list of books I’ve already read, I’m just not sure I see the value in that. Having said all this, I’m going to play with Bookshelves for a little while, see if I find it more useful than I expect.
