Week 8, Task 19: LibraryThing

What can I say: it's a book-lover's dream! It was hard to stop at five books but I still have a life (and I can always come back as time allows). I decided to enter some of my summer reading as my beta project on LibraryThing. (See bottom of blog if you're, like me, always curious.) I am now wondering if there is a check-out function that would allow me to keep track of books loaned out? I signed up to be an early reviewer (one my of my dream jobs, aside from running a library, would be to review books). All of the titles were closed for this month, but I plan to keep my eye on the site for the next round. You know how some kids think we live in the library? They just might be on to something!

You might be the first School Library Learning 2.0 participant that has added your LibraryThing (random selections) on your blog. That was a treat! We "cheerleaders" keep learning as we read all the blogs throughout the summer.

Glad you enjoyed LibraryThing. It is so very cool. Best wishes.

I liked your idea of using LibraryThing to keep track of books loaned out. I would also like to see a way to add and note books that you "owned", by virtue of having read, even though you might practice what a friend calls read and release.
