a goodreads replacement approaches...? https://beta.thestorygraph.com/
lol i didn't realize librarything is also owned in part by amazon https://www.newstatesman.com/science-tech/social-media/2020/08/better-goodreads-possible-bad-for-books-storygraph-amazon
the biggest hurdle for a goodreads replacement is still the data source, i'm not sure what storygraph uses
for a federated project, the best bet might be a triplestore with wikidata as the base, then augmenting local records with descriptions etc pulled from elsewhere
have i finally reached the 'hobby rdf project' part of my character arc
