@manton I know that Micro.blog can't (and shouldn't, really) be an all-in-one replacement for every silo, not least because of the inevitable bloat that would occur, but a nice simple option like this for books would be great. That way it would be even easier to avoid Goodreads, just like it is with avoiding Instagram thanks to the photo features of Micro.blog.
I need to see what my read posts look like on micro.blog, I made the Known plug-in so by definition it is buggy, haven't figured out the micropub parts.
@bix ooh. I went to clean up my stuff in an attempt to use Delicious Library once and could have used this. Fascinating and awesome.
@bix Your post and @jsonbecker 's early post gave me an idea. It is possible to build a "passable" shortcode using data retrieval to query the Google books API from to get a cover from ISBN. However, out of the handful of ISBNs I tried - a number didn't exist or did not have a good sized image. :( The linked example is hardcoded to use thumbnails, and doesn't fall back very well if an ISBN isn't found, shindakun.micro.blog/2019/12/3...
