My Librarything has been more less dormant since I joined Booklikes. After the scare we had recently, I decided to start using my other book communities more. I hadn't added any books to LT for ages. So I decided to try to do an import, not feeling very hopeful that it would work. Booklikes doesn't seem to have a way of exporting, does it? When I found out that Leafmarks was going to shut down, I downloaded my books from there, like everyone else. To cut to the chase, I was able to import that file into LT. It even looked as if some of the titles I read as ebooks were added, but surely that can't be right? Anyway, I feel a lot better now that (most of) my book collection is safe. It's on Libib too, so hopefully I won't have any trouble in the future. All three can't just disappear at once, at least I hope not.

Themis-Athena Elsewhere

This is a bandwaggon I'd hoped never to have to jump onto, but just in case -- here are links to my profile pages on other websites:


ThemisAthena on Leafmarks

Themis-Athena on Goodreads

Themis-Athena on Libib

ThemisAthena on FictFact

Lioness at Large on Wordpress

ThemisAthena on Pinterest

Ulrike on LinkedIn

Ulrike on Facebook


Essentially my handle is the same on all sites except for LinkedIn, Facebook and Wordpress; just note that sometimes it's hyphenated and sometimes it isn't, depending on the respective site's user name parameters.


ETA1: My Wordpress blog -- Lioness at Large -- is now operational, too.  Currently I'm still mainly copying my reviews there just to have an additional home for them, but I think from here on out I'll be blogging on WP as well.


The only other sites (besides BookLikes) where I've so far actually interacted with others are Leafmarks and Facebook.


ETA2: Well, duh.  Bookstooge just shared Leafmarks's announcement that the site will be shutting down as of July 1.  There goes yet another option then ...


So that leaves Facebook as the only other site where I am truly active.  Time to start experimenting with the others for real, I supose.


FWIW, up to now, this has been my stance vis-à-vis my accounts on the other sites, respectively (and to the extent not expressly struck, the following is still true):


Libib and Fictfact to me are merely (as yet incomplete) backup book catalogues.


Pinterest is my "everything but the kitchen sink" meme repository.


Wordpress is not much more more than an ID and a blog devoid of even the first post at the moment, so as to be able to follow other people's blogs (on WP and elsewhere).  Depending on how things go on here, this may or may not change.
It has changed.


LinkedIn is another "just in case" account.


Goodreads, finally, is also merely a temporary expedient.  I pulled out of there in 2013 and have no intention to go back for good -- just using my vestige ID as a fall back option in the current situation.

Just in case...

Considering what's going on here on Booklikes, I just thought I'd mention that I'm on Goodreads and Libib too, even though I haven't used them much. Or at all. If you like, you're welcome to follow/friend me there. I'm also on a number of other sites, but none of them are book-related. If you're still interested, just ask and I'll add you/follow you there.

I forgot to mention that I'm on Libib too, if anyone wants to friend me there.

When Amazon bought Goodreads, I began to look around for an alternative (don't get me wrong, I still visit Goodreads and I shop on Amazon, but it was just to be on the safe side). One of the many book related sites I joined was Libib. I imported my Goodreads books and that was that, for a while, until the other day when I received an email from Libib telling about their new features. While it can't compare to Booklikes, it's definitely a nice site. I really like the way the shelf looks. My only problem is that I can hardly find any Swedish books and, I imagine, it will be hard to find books in French as well.

Is anyone else on Libib? What do you think?

I have a little list of things I'd like to improve:

* Themes for the profile page
* More space for info about the member (homepage URL, interests, memberships on other sites...)
* A dashboard where you can see what your friends have posted about
* An Explore page where you can find and connect with new friends
* An easier way of publishing posts

Other than that, I'm quite happy being on both sites.
