Week 8, Thing #19 LibraryThing

I really enjoy LibraryThing. I picked it out as one of my favorites from the Web 2.0 awards and have explored it in greater detail ever since. I catalogued a bunch of books in my home library. It was interesting to see which ones were the most popular. Reading through the discussions of the most popular book I catalogued, The Help by Kathryn Stocket, it's interesting to note the different perspectives other readers bring to this book. I am not linking to my home library catalog because I'm a private person.

One of the features of LibraryThing that I really like is the entire local events calendar page. It's a great way to connect to what is happening in your area and to other local LibraryThing followers.
