Why I’m about to remove “reading list by amazon” from my linkedin profile

I started to use this application at the end of 2008 and stopped about 3 years (and more than 80 books) later due to two intrinsic limitations of it.

First limitation: it’s not possible to start a discussion about the books.

Second limitation: if a book is not sold by Amazon it doesn’t exist.

As I’ve started this blog I don’t see a good reason to keep using the application: here the opportunity to followup and comment is available and I’m not limited to the books sold by a single shopping site.

As part of the removal process I’ll copy the content of the current reading list into a dedicated post.

Anyone interested in discussing one of my comments about the books can let me know and I will elaborate in a dedicated post.
