I wanted to combine the posters with Goodreads. Rather than just show what I'm currently reading, I could link to Goodreads which tracks my progress, lets me publish a review when I am finished and records which books I've completed so far this year. Or at least, that was the plan...
The trick was to share links to specific sections of Goodreads. The best way I could find was to use the widgets provided by Goodreads to place the details in a blog and then share the blog posts.
The result: Mr Muir's Reading Blog. Only a few posts so far but a couple of key sections are:
- Keeping track: why I started the blog;
- Books Read in 2018: a widget that links to "read-in-2018" bookshelf and
- Currently Reading: the currently reading widget.
Put some QR codes on the poster to link to the relevant sections and job done. At least, job done assuming anybody bothers to scan the QR codes and read the blog.
What do you think? Daft idea? Vaguely interesting? Please leave a comment below if you have any thoughts or suggestions.
