      mjoe7 LibraryThing is a fantastic online book cataloging service that will help you keep track of your library and make it available to you at all times. It has a neat and tidy user interface. The only drawback is that I can't seem to get rid of the other "Collections" types that I don't need. GoodReads has a rebound to that.

      We believe that the information we use to make decisions -- about what book to read, what place to stay at or what product to buy -- will be of higher quality if we organize it transparently, through an open community.

      Anime-Planet vs Goodreads opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Anime-Planet is still a legitimate alternative to Goodreads, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

      arndtadler is a good Idea but does not have the Community functions of goodreads. If you just Want to store you're book lists it is an interesting alternative and it is even possible to import from goodreads.
