IndieWebCamp Online 2019
Session: Read posts / indiebookclub
When: 2019-03-08 23:00 UTC
WorldCat or OpenLibrary for opensource book covers
At Austin discussion of micropub, he started thinking about an OwnYourReads type service
- RSS feed has title authors, tiny thumbnail
silo.pub has been down
dougbeal uses Kindle which pushes information into Goodreads
- star rating and review at finish reading, gives option to syndicate to Goodreads
Highlighted or annotated pieces in Kindle, Goodreads picks it up as a private annotation, gives option to make it public.
- Chris Aldrich has it on his list to check if there's an RSS / export for this
TODO for gregor:
- ✔ add github / contact info to indiebookclub.biz
- check on micro.blog usage numbers
PESOS options for read posts?
- Eddie Hinkle uses Kindle a lot so Goodreads -> Micropub is an ideal use-case. The friction of typing a quote from a book is too great for me. lol.
Amazon Kindle app on Android lets you highlight text and share to any app source
