Are you a closet librarian? Do you have a passion for putting your own books in order? Do you want to talk online about your books but can’t find like-minded people on MySpace or Facebook? Help is at hand with LibraryThing – sometimes known as the world’s biggest book club, or in their own words:
“LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth.”
I’d dipped into LibraryThing myself, but hadn’t done much about it, however an exciting interview with founder Tim Spalding on Radio National’s book show reminded me to take another look. Sadly you had to be quick to get the podcast and it’s now gone – however you can find out more about becoming a thingamabrarian on LibraryThing’s own site and on Wikipedia.
