Thing #11- Library Thing

I have fallen in love! Library Thing is amazing! I find myself getting stuck not knowing what I should read next. Like so many of you, I am a working mom with a hectic schedule. When I finally get time to read a book, I want it to be a book that I will absolutely love. I don't have time to waste reading mediocre books. Library Thing is going to solve this problem for me. I know I won't have time to input my personal collection, but if I start now loading the titles I have read recently, then I will always have current recommendations for what to read next. I plan on sharing this with all of my book-loving girlfriends. I can see us becoming addicted.

I felt like the site was very easy to use. I even played around and visited some of the groups with similiar interests. I really enjoyed reading some of the group member reviews. I am proud to say that I played around and even created a widget of books that I have read recently and added it to my blog! Take a look! I love to see/hear what my librarian friends are reading, so I hope some of you do the same on your blogs.

This site would be useful as a tool on our school blogs. I would love to add a widget for recommended titles and also for titles that we have read together in the library. I think both students and parents would find this useful!


  1. I agree with you about finding "read-worthy" books b/c we teachers have hectic schedules! It would be neat to have a blog set up for students to discuss books. I enjoyed this site because it was easy to use, and I can tailor it to my needs. Switching topics...I love your background! I went to this webpage and found a fun background for myself!

  2. I really enjoy reading, this post has been most helpful. Found it on Google
