Library Thing

Have you checked out Library Thing yet? It's at www.librarything.com.

It's fascinating. I spent last night and this morning putting up most of the books I've read this year. It's a way to catalog your personal library or keep track of books you've read. It's also the hot social network out there for people who like to read. You can contact other people who read the same books you do, and find out what else they like.

I like it because I can see my entire "library" by book cover. I can also link directly from the book reviews here to that site, so I don't have to copy them or write a second review. (Thank you AdeptMagic.) And, of course, there's the opportunity to network.

Just what I need. Another fun website.

Ok, you hooked me with this. I'm going to check it out tomorrow, it's just too late tonight. Thanks for the good ideas, and I enjoy reading your reviews as they give me a very good sense of whether I want to read the book or not.

Thank you, Lisa! I warn you, Library Thing is addicting. I love looking at all of those gorgeous book covers after I've entered them in the library.

And, thanks for the nice compliment about my reviews!
