I started work on making books available within Popcorn-Time
2 projects | reddit.com/r/PopCornTimeApp | 20 Apr 2022
I don't have a way to find and curate audiobooks. Plus, LibGen books are already available on IPFS so all I need is collect links. I have been running https://learnawesome.org/ so books seemed far more approachable.
Show HN: Lurnby, a tool for better learning, is now open source

Fantastic! I'll have a deeper look and see if there's any opportunities for integrating this into https://learnawesome.org (which is also open-source).
Ask HN: What is your “I don't care if this succeeds” project?

I am building https://learnawesome.org
It's an attempt to organize world's knowledge. Right now, it looks like GoodReads-like social network for learning resources organized by topics, formats, difficulty levels etc. But there's a knowledge-graph that separates ideas and the medium those ideas are expressed in. For eg: "Sapiens - the book" and "TED Talk given by Yuval Harari" are connected to the same node.
This idea isn't anything new. Here is Danny Hillis talking about it at OSCON 2012: https://youtu.be/wKcZ8ozCah0
Is there an app like Goodreads that actually has an easy UI?

How to circumvent Sci-Hub ISP block

I have been dealing with the same problem for curating resources at https://learnawesome.org. Projects like Openlibrary do collect unique identifiers for _books_, but for everything else, it mostly takes manual effort. For example, I collect talks/podcasts by the author where they discuss ideas from their books. Then there are summaries written by others.
Show HN: Vellum – An interactive list of nonfiction books reviewed by academics

This is a fantastic effort! Kudos :-)
I have been collecting learning resources and their reviews by experts at https://learnawesome.org/ (open-source, built with Ruby on Rails and TailwindCSS). Would you be kind enough to share the raw JSON files for their books?
LearnAwesome has its own topic taxonomy so it will still require tagging topics manually, but it can save me some effort on scraping/parsing LSE/Nature sites.
Kenneth Kuttler's Free Math Books

I have been adding a number of these free books at https://learnawesome.org/
Do you really care about the format being PDF or is it about the books being FREE? I'd like to make common queries like yours easier. LearnAwesome is open-source, so of course you're free to contribute: https://github.com/learn-awesome/learn
