What are the best groups on Goodreads

Literature shock positions itself. No tolerance for Nazis and fascists, because whoever marches next to these assholes is either a Nazi / Fascist himself or a useful puppet of them. There are no other categories.
  • I tried to find something about the page using the search function, but apparently no thread has been opened yet. If one already exists, just ignore me.

    At http://www.goodreads.com everyone can list the books they have read, place them on shelves they have created, rate them and write reviews about them. A kind of last.fm for books. Since it is an international site, most of the profiles are in English, but it is also possible to post the German book editions. But the way I see it, very few do it.

    You can discuss in groups, make friends with like-minded people from all over the world or get book tips (if someone else needs them here ).

    I once signed up for the test because I a) have a lot of time at the moment and b) often borrow books and then forget that I have read them. I will definitely look around a little more. Then it remains to be seen whether the site is interesting in the long term.

  • I don't know which came first, but I suspect that many - like me - are now at lovelybooks ...

  • Hi cotton candy!
    I was just looking at lovelybooks. Didn't know that there was already a corresponding German site.
    Goodreads is certainly the larger platform, but lovelybooks has the clear advantage that there is no language chaos there. I like it even better. Let's see if I sign up.

  • What bothers me about lovelybooks is that they add lots of nice little features that look nice on the outside but aren't really useful. But useful innovations fall by the wayside.

    There is no useful search option for your own bookshelf. You can't even categorize your books with the tags, because if you click on your own tag you will be directed to a "rummage" page, which is not really useful.
    With over 600 books on the shelf and yet comparatively long loading times, finding your own book can be exhausting.
    You also can't take a date of purchase, a date of reading, or other useful private notes, as was the case with Bookpaths.

    The people there are really very, very nice and try very hard, but I'm slowly considering looking for an alternative again.

  • I am at reliwa.de and quite satisfied, although they often do not have the issues I have read. For me it is only about the overview, not about the exchange with others. (I also have a handwritten list of the books I read, but I lag behind every now and then and so I'm glad I can do it online quickly.)

    [i] But we need the books that seem to us like a misfortune that hurts us very much, like the death of someone we would rather have than ourselves, as if we were to advance into the woods, of all people

  • Good Morning!

    A small overview of these so-called "virtual bookshelves":

    <a href="http://www.buchpfade.de/">Buchpfade.de</a>
    <a href="http://www.goodreads.com/">Goodreads</a>
    Librarything.de // Librarything.com ( Info )
    Lovely Books ( Criticism )
    Reader2 ( Info )
    <a href="http://www.bibliophil.org/default.php">bibliophil.org</a>
    <a href="http://www.reliwa.de/">Reliwa.de</a>
    <a href="http://www.shelfari.com/">Shelfari.com</a>


  • For me it is only about the overview, not about the exchange with others. (I also have a handwritten list of the books I read, but I lag behind every now and then and so I'm glad I can do it online quickly.)

    The risk with such sites would be too great for me to just catalog.
    There is an undeniable risk that the site will suddenly be shut down and all the time-consuming data entered will be gone.
    Then I would rather invest my time in cataloging in an Ecxel table or a special book program. Then it is at least guaranteed that the effort was worth it in the long term.

  • @Dostojevskij: You can delete book paths, they have closed their doors. You can still call up the page, but you can no longer enter anything there. At the end of the year, the site will also go away.

    Santanico: Most of these pages offer the possibility to export your data, so the data will not be lost completely. The risk that it was all in vain is definitely there, you are right.

    Oh, I did not know that.
    Then always export nicely

  • Pandora: Then Goodreads might be more for you. They have a search function for their own books, you can enter the reading date and the date on which you added a book is given. But it is questionable whether it makes sense to list 600 books again.

    After a little comparison between lovelybooks and goodreads, I have to say that goodreads is clearer and easier and faster to use.

    I don't know any other platforms. But slowly I can't see any lists anymore.

  • Personally, I'm with lovely books, but I have to admit that I haven't done a lot there yet. It has some nice ones - as well as many useless ones, as a friend always says - Features, but let's see if I really do the job of entering everything there.

  • Huhu!

    I have to push upstairs for a moment.

    I was so free and have one for all literature shockers who are on GoodReads group tinkered. Hope that's okay (Nimue?), Otherwise I'll of course delete them.
    I just thought that if several of us are scattered across these pages of books, that would make it easier for us to find each other. So if you want, you can join. So far the group is still empty, but we could at least see the SUBs of the members more clearly than here in your SUBs thread.

    Best regards,
    an overzealous Wendy (who is also in love with goodreads )

    EDIT: I've now added Nimue's copyright again so that everything is in order.

  • Somehow I don't quite understand what exactly is the difference to a normal literary forum.

    Well, it's not about the forum, it's about seeing your books graphically. You can see the "shelf" of all members, what they are reading, etc.
    That's right, there's that here too. But while here I have to rummage through your posts, for example if I want to know what you are reading, I click on goodreads on your profile and - tadaaa !. It was also intended more for people who are already represented on goodreads.

  • Oh so ok. Yes, that is also good if you have your joy there. For me it is nothing in that case, because I am too unplanned and chaotic with reading.
