This is a good read (ha,ha) in light of @manton’s new trial bookshelf feature here: Why I’m deleting GoodReads and maybe you should too.

I’d be happy to shift across,, as the feature matures. Sadly the GoodReads import crapped out for me after three books.

@adders @manton I had the same thing, micro.blog imported only 3 books (of around 100). The 4th item in the .csv didn’t have an ISBN, so maybe that stopped it from importing the rest?

@ArnoldHoogerwerf @adders I only got 3 too!

@adders That's a great article. Personally, I find it helpful to have a little extra incentive to wrap up a book and mark it "done”, but gamification is a problem and I want to avoid that.

@ArnoldHoogerwerf @adders It shouldn't give up when it hits one blank ISBN, although some folks have reported better results by cleaning up the data first. I also fixed a couple glitches yesterday. Feel free to email me your CSV and I can fix more problems in the import!

@manton Just tried it again, and it went through to completion this time.

@manton @adders Yes, on the second try I was also more successful! Will report if I find more glitches.
