Library Thing


I think that mrhe first introduced me to the concept of Library Thing in an entry in his blog back a while ago. I finally got around to checking it out last week and ended up staying up late and spending a few hours putting in my entire library. Now anyone can see what books are on my shelves. When I was done, I realized that I really don’t have as many books as I thought. I like books. We’ve got several bookshelves filled with them, but really there are only about 130 total. I also realized that it’s a bit of an eclectic collection. I added a little “widget” to the sidebar of this blog that displays a random handful of books out of my library. Cool stuff.

    Indeed, the thing is cool. Mean Rachel gets the props for putting it up first.

    Library Thing is pretty cool. My wife has entered most of ours, although her list is missing about 1000 books at this point.

    knowing I have a thesis to write, it was very unethical of you to blog about LibraryThing. I just spent about 4 hours messing around with it when I should have been doing any number of other things, and I’m not even through half of my books yet. I think my life may be ruined.

    Widgets are my thing, what can I say.
