LibraryThing, I think I love you  
I should be writing, because I've got to get on the 1:30 train into Cork today, so my time's a little limited, buuuut...

This morning I had email from LibraryThing creator Tim Spalding, who's added a new LT feature: LibraryThing Authors. It's basically just a way for users to easily find what books their favorite authors might have on their shelves, but I think it's pretty darned nifty. :)

(25 minutes later: This is me, LEAVING LIBRARYTHING AND GOING TO WORK!)

Is this the way of the world, now? Is it important to let the world know my library, and to pay for the privilege to do so? Is it the new social mechanic that connects people to the world? Or are people so interested in feeling like the part of something bigger that it's making this kind of site popular?

Mind you, this LibraryThing is really pretty danmed sweet. Now if only Delicious Library gets a hook into it...

Ooh, more toys. Pity I don't actually have a mac these days... Then again, the nice thing about Librarything is finding people who have similar tastes in books as me, and seeing what they have read and recommended that I haven't read yet. Almost as good as picking up tips at my former favorite bookstore, now gone the way of most brick&mortar places in the age of the Amazon...
