Thing #11 was to create a profile on LibraryThing, add at least 5 books, and play around with it.
I would say that it'd be a great tool for a book club to use, but, again, wouldn't it be more fun to sit around and sip coffee and eat pastries and talk about a book? I guess I am more in favor of the "analog" in this area.
However, LibraryThing does have a lot of other great capabilities! For example, I can look up other members who have my book, and see what else is in their library. If I see an interesting title, I can click on it, see its average rating, and read some reviews of it! A handy tool, no doubt, for those pesky volumes you're just not quite sure would be good buys. Sure, you might not know the reviewers, but with Library Thing, you can quickly discover people with very similar tastes and interests.
I am trying to add my LT widget to my blog, but I can't get it just right. Regardless of the number of columns I make it, the edge keeps getting cut off. Any pointers?
