Tuesday Thingers – all about LibraryThing

tuesdaythingers

Today’s question: Here is a list of the main areas of Library Thing:
1. Home (http://www.librarything.com/, before you log in)
2. Home (once you log in, contains Your Home, Your Profile, Connections, Recommendations, Reviews, Statistics, Clouds, Gallery, Memes)
3. Profile (Recent activity, tags, comments, members with your books)
4. Your Library
5. Your Tags
6. Add Books
7. Talk
8. Groups
9. Local
10. Search
11. Zeitgeist (Stats, Top Lists)
12. Tools (Widgets, Store)
13. Blog

What area are you most familiar with? What area is your favorite? What area are you curious about? Are there any that you have not really looked at?

I joined in October and got really serious just this month. I know the Add Books and Your Library sections pretty well. Today I found the Talk and Groups areas. Then I found the Group for the 999 Challenge and spent another 30 minutes creating my post with my list for 9 books in 9 areas in 09. The Touchstones feature is great, it adds the LibraryThing link to the book so quickly! After that I updated my library so now my Touchstones on my post have a green check mark to show which books I own. That way I know which ones I’ll need to borrow or acquire some other way.

I haven’t done much with reviews or tags. I started doing more with tags today and will plug in some reviews as I go through my list.

Today my favorite would be the Groups area. My favorite discovery for the day is under Home  |  Statistics | Series Coverage. I already knew most of this since it takes effort to collect all in a series and read them in order. But I discovered that Darkness at Noon by Arthur Koestler is the second of a trilogy so now I have two more books on my To Be Read list.

There is still a lot on Home and Recommendations that I haven’t looked at yet. Some day. But right now I need to get back to reading!

    Wow – I learned two things from your answer! I’ll have to go see what Touchstones are, and I know I’ve read about the series, but never really looked at it.

    Thanks for participating in Tuesday Thingers this week!

    Happy New Year ~ Wendi
