I’m currently looking into creating my own library catalogue, but am yet to settle on a particular system; options include the open-source Koha, or perhaps my LibraryThing account, which, as you’ll see if you click on the link, has been sorely neglected.
In the meantime, I’m using Goodreads. Update: Goodreads doesn’t automatically update here when I update my reading on its own site. I think this is because I’m using Goodreads on a WordPress blog, not a WordPress website. In the meantime, then, I’ll be manually updating my reading lists here, most recent reading only for now, but with a full list of past reading to come.
