I signed up for Library Thing sometime last year, but never bothered to populate it. I have a lot of books. Enough that it could take me weeks to enter them all. I couldn’t face the prospect, so my account languished.
Michele’s new blog gave me the push I needed to look at it more closely. When I saw you could import books from other sites, rather than typing them in one by one, I decided maybe it wouldn’t take quite as long as I’d feared. I fed it my Amazon wish list, and the book pages from my store, and it filled up my library quite nicely. I still had to go through and delete some inappropriate entries (mostly books from my store that I didn’t like enough to keep a personal copy of), and add others that I acquired elsewhere. I haven’t even begun to add titles from my fiction collection, but since I don’t really read much of that these days, it’s not a priority. For the most part, this library is a list of things that appeal to my crafty/domestic side.
Anyway, if you have a Library Thing account and would like to befriend me, feel free! If you’re not interested in that, but you like to see what I’m reading (why? I don’t know. I just thought you might, ok?) you can check out the sidebar. My current reading list is displayed there. The only thing I don’t like about that widget is that it links to Amazon. It would be better if I could configure it to link to my store, since I do sell some of those books, too, and I need the money more than Amazon does 😀
I leave you with a gratuitous chick pic that has nothing to do with anything:
