@bsn Thanks! I might include a couple of these other book variations to mean the same thing. The open book emoji is nice too.
@manton I realized one of the nifty things about using emoji is that you don't have to worry about localization on the post-collecting end; you can just look for the emoji and every language will start appearing in the topic list as those languages and their posts start appearing on Micro.blog. Well done!
@simonmumbles Thank you. I've only recently started using Goodreads and may still use it to track my book list, but ignore the social aspects of it. I think using 📚 on Micro.blog works better than a separate friends list for me.
@manton I've always been on-and-off with Goodreads, much like with every other social network tbh. The way in which Micro.blog stops the depth of features from becoming cruft hits the exact spot for me; the social layer is implemented in such a way that it doesn't comprimise the ownership side of things.
I suppose I might go back to social networks but I doubt it'll ever be more than via cross-posting and just to signal boost, if at all.
Uh... yeah, so I further approve I guess. Heh.
