Replacement for Visual Bookshelf?

7 Responses

  1. I’m in pretty much exactly the same situation and I stumbled across your posting. Did you end up going with one of the alternatives you listed, sticking with Visual Bookshelf, or did you find something else even better?

      While still not particularly happy with Visual Bookshelf – it still has all the same flaws – its remained my mainstay. I was unable to find anything else which provided me with the same ease of use, etc. and was worth the effort of migrating. I didn’t want to begin keeping my library in two locations – and keeping it on Facebook was the more important for me.

    I’m pretty sure Visual Bookshelf now allows the export of lists… but in any case, “I’m Reading” seems to be a good replacement. Very quick and accurate. The only downside I see so far is the loss of your community (not very many users are on I’m Reading yet).

    Is there anyway to get visual bookshelf into goodreads and have it include the date the book was read. I exported but they all are being treated like they were read at same time.

    Does anyone know how I can get list or something that has all of my selections that I had accumulated on Visual Bookshelf over the years? I don’t remember getting any notice of LivingSocial cancelling VB and one day found out the hard way through Facebook. I have email to Livingsocial about this, but no reply yet. Please let me know if there’s any way to recover the list.
