What are your favorite examples of “now reading” pages? Do you have one of your own?
These can be anywhere along the spectrum of random reading recommendations, or highly structured lists of books / resources, eg in a cirriculum format. Particulaly interested in ones created/maintained by individuals rather than organizations.
Yes, I am creating a list of lists.
No, I am not disappearing down a turpentine rabbit hole :p. Just want to research various examples to try and productize common and useful elements of these types of lists.
@johnhenry I made a Leadership Reader a while back: https://medium.com/@alper/the-leadership-reader-7793f74d3497?source=linkShare-606c838ecd9e-1531426699
Ya openlibrary is a great resource that I'm glad I stumbled upon recently. There is a surprisingly large selection of books that anyone could read. Honestly I'm not sure how they can get away with some of these legally.
There isn't that friction between seeing a reading list and actually getting the books. You just click a button.
@johnhenry i've browsed through a couple before, but here are one's where I actually read the books (excluding ribbonfarm): https://twitter.com/NickSzabo4/status/978827543137566720
