I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Okay, so I'm still annoyed enough with the stuff Goodreads pulled on its users (still without notifying the community as a whole, unless I missed something) that I haven't updated my account since I moved over to BookLikes and LibraryThing.
I really miss being able to compare myself to other readers in order to find people with similar tastes. I can compare libraries in LibraryThing, although I think only the number of shared books are considered. That's not good enough, and, besides, for my purposes LibraryThing is little more than a catalog. I don't chat with people about books much, but, when I do, it's been through BookLikes.
My dream: being able to compare users (ratings + number of books in common). It would be even better if greater weight were given to *recent* ratings/books in common.
This post was inspired by a recent slog through BookLikes' "Explore" page. Readers with tastes like mine, I really want to meet you and stalk your reviews. But it's so hard to find you...
