Bookshelf widget...

March 10, 2009
I'd like to find something else for my bookshelf widget. I currently have a widget from Amazon, which I like, but it's such a pain in the a$$ to update. Seriously. They need to learn to do a drag-n-drop thingamabob for updating that widget. & if you want to re-arrange? Forget it.

So, what else is out there?  I've seen widgets from Shelfari & Library Thing.  Who uses which, and why do you like it? Can you maintain one shelf, and categorize books differently, so you can create separate widgets (tbr, currently reading, entire shelf)? Or do you have to do a separate shelf for each widget?  Can you do a slideshow, or is it a static display?  

& I cannot believe that I'm letting a widget get me all distracted! I have books to read!!!  =P

later, gators!

Goodreads has some great widgets. I keep thinking I will add a widget to my page, but I've just kept the list - for now :)

Ooh, I'll have to check 'em out too... I actually had about 200 books uploaded to the Visual Bookshelf app on facebook, but it doesn't DO anything... =P & I don't have time to keep updating separate widgets. One bookshelf with diff categories that I can build widgets for, would be wonderful! =) Am I just too fussy?

I just have the one widget from Shelfari right now, but I know you can create more. For one reason one of my books is not showing up on my blog right now though, and I don't understand why. When I update my shelf on Shelfari it is there, but I go to my blog and it's not! It's magical I guess.

I have the LT widget. I think I have it set to my TBR...What I like about it, is that the books showing on my blog automatically and randomly change. I don't have to do anything with it.

And, every once in a while, a book will pop up that I forgot I even had!

I don't use it but went and researched a few for you. Here's a completely different line than any of the above. Not sure if it's interest you or not but couldn't hurt to see if you liked it.

If you scroll down there is one called a badge widget which seems ideal and takes up the less space. (Hugs)Indigo

I use library thing since I post reviews there anyway, and they just pick random books from your library. If don't know if you can actually pick the books--I haven't tried.

I like the GoodReads widget because it looks good, very clean and simple, and it updates itself if you are good at entering your books regularly on their website. You can customize it to your needs.

I have only tried and use Shelfari. NOTHING comes easy to un-tech me, but it has a part where I choose which books I want on there, can tell it if I want to put titles, go to Amazon to buy it (I don't do those things though) and best of all you can click on and choose to let it know if.. I own it, I read it, I am reading it, etc...and you can choose arrange by date, title, I own it, even custom where you pick them up and place them where you want them in your own order. You also can choose how many shelves and size of books and kind of shelf, wood, metal, etc. That's what I use but I am still a newbie so surely others have better ideas. Good luck...Bingo

I use LibraryThing. Set up a tag, use the wizard to code the widget and you are done. It takes care of itself and you control which books appear by assigning tags at LT (which I much prefer over Shelfari). If you have more books tagged than the widget will show, it randomly picks them (so readers get a rotating selection).

Need more than one widget? Use more than one tag and just change that one piece of text in the HTML for the widget - you don't even need to reuse the wizard for that.

LT also works great as a library shelf (then again, it was designed by librarians). It doesn't bog down and die when you get a few hundred books in it (as Shelfari does; which also has no way to even search your shelves, making it near useless for most purposes).

I actually chose Goodreads widgets above LT and Shelfari. Goodreads has quite a few of them and you can pick which books you want to dislay: read, currently readint or to-be-read.

Kaye said...

hey Drey, I have awarded you the Proximidade award. Stop by and pick up the logo,etc.

Lorin said...

I use the LT random book widget. sometimes I'll post a currently reading button, but I'm bad at updating it, so its down for now.

drey said...

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys, and Indigo, thank you for looking around - I didn't even think of doing that! (thunk)

So I signed up for GoodReads, Shelfari, Library Thing. Uploaded a file exported from Living Social (used to be Visual Bookshelf). I'm not liking the way you have to edit each book individually on LT, to mark something "to read" or "currently reading"... It should be something you should be able to do right from the list. GR does make that easier to do. Shelfari makes it easy to head on over to Amazon to buy the book. *sigh* I guess I'll be playing more. After I post my review for Sway. & finish New Moon...
