I think you should join us in the LessWrong group on Goodreads (18 members and growing).

I might. I don't have an account right now though; I'll have to sign up. What do you use the group for? I don't see anything in the discussions or bookshelf

Right now I only use it as a convenient way to find other LessWrongers and the books they read.

I'm wondering as well. The intuitive feature would be showing me which books are most popular among this group.

Right now, not much. I'm thinking of intersecting reading lists to start a regular book club. This would benefit those who (like you) want reviews by the LW community.

I am unsure how to implement the idea though. Following each member and looking for common elements manually is tedious. Scraping lists is beyond my programming skills, so assistance on this matter would be greatly appreciated. So would feedback on the general idea.

ETA: moving discussion to the Open Thread

Ah. So it's just that it's still young. LW book club sounds good, I'm in.
