Recently found out that Goodreads is owned by Amazon and now I'm uncomfortable with my now 9 year old account there.

Considering deleting it and not replacing it with anything because honestly I never really used the social features there, just to keep track of books I've read.

I could just do that with a spreadsheet or a text file.

@staticsafe It’s maybe worth checking with @switchingsocial for a Goodreads alternative.

No *exact* alternative, but a lot of overlap with these services:

Free open site, catalogue your collection and keep track of books lent to others.
Follow them at:

Open Library
Internet Archive's book site, includes pages for every book ever published.

Ecosystem for DRM-free eBooks, store them, rate them, have reading lists etc.

You can follow them at @libreture
