Tagging Sites for Books and Programs

It has been a fruitful morning in that I have added two new online tagging sites to my "Bibliography" frame on the sidebar, RSS feeds to follow.  First there is Reader2 a:

This site allows you to keep a social list of the books you read and/or recommend. After you sign up you can add books to your unique list. You can view anyone else's books and they can view yours.

Extra user-defined data can be added to each book entry to organize and describe the book further such as descriptions, link, and tags. You can use tags to categorize (and thus organize) books so that you and others using this site will have an easier time finding new and interesting books.

So why would you use this site?

  • You can easily find new and interesting books through user-defined categories, searches, and popularity among users.
  • You can find users with similar book taste and see what they read (if you want this thing to work, you'll need to add 10-20 books first).
  • You can keep track of your friend's books through RSS feeds.
  • You can export books list to your site / blog.

Through Reader2 I found their companion site MyProgs, their About page says:

This site allows you to keep a social list of the programs you use. After you sign up you can add programs to your unique list. You can view anyone else's programs and they can view yours.

Extra user-defined data can be added to each program entry to organize and describe the program further such as program descriptions, a link to the program's homepage, and tags. You can use tags to categorize (and thus organize) programs so that you and others using this site will have an easier time finding new and interesting programs.

So why would you use this site?

  • If your computer ever crashes or you switch to a new computer you will have this handy little list to remind you of which programs you had.
  • You can easily find new and interesting programs through user-defined categories, searches, and popularity among users.
  • You can keep track of your friend's or coworker's programs through RSS feeds.
  • You can advertise that cool new program you just made.
  • All programs are submitted by regular people like yourself which means that most programs have been tested and found to be useful.

A very cool morning indeed.  Now I get to learn how to frame both sites RSS feeds into my sidebars.  *S*  Life is good.

I love both of those sites - there are a lot of book tagging services indexed by DMoz (plus Allconsuming.net. Which one will get to critical mass first? And which will let me import my Endnote database automatically?
