Making our reading lists social not only furthers this trend, but it has additional benefits. As any writer of fanfic will tell you, knowing that people are reading makes you write more and write better, and this holds true for reading logs as well: it makes you read more and read better. Moreover, social reading logs could be a way to discover new material. At a macro level, seeing what we’re all reading might reveal to us that anthropology does have a canon and a consensus that we just haven’t seen. And if it turns out it didn’t, it might be that social reading logs would be a way to help create it, or at least clarify which approaches are struggling for hegemony.
