Operative Factors: Living Social - Books

Living Social is a fun website. You can share what you're reading with your friends, and keep track of what you are reading. It's similar to Goodreads, but it adds in other social factors like movies, video games, etc., if you want. I think it is easier to integrate Living Social into Facebook than the Goodreads widget. I bet that a lot of you aren't as into Facebook as I am, but hey, who knows?

Another fun part about Living Social it lets you import your books from your Amazon.com wishlist and export them to a .csv file. A .csv file is a file that will work well with a spreadsheet if you want to keep track of your reading in your very own customized spreadsheet later.

Another fun part is that you can get a widget like the one below to put on your site.



Check out Living Social - Books, and let me know what you think. I think it's a great alternative to Goodreads, for those of you who aren't fans of GR, but definitely want your input.

I have heard of this website a lot and I use their book widget on Facebook, or I used to actually. I think I may have an account I may have to look at using this more.
