This week on Tuesday Thingers Wendi writes: we are looking at Buzz! That’s right! Library Thing has a page to share what people are saying about Library Thing. The best part? They have areas for quotes from sites (including Wendi’s Book Corner and a few others I’ll bet you’ll recognize), What Librarians are Saying, Prizes and Awards, Should It Be Illegal?, quotes from mainstream media, and even Tweets! So, take a peek and see what people are saying. 🙂
Questions: Were you aware that Library Thing had a Buzz page? Were you surprised by anything you saw or read on the Buzz page?
My answer: I had no idea this was on LibraryThing. I don’t find it the easiest site to find things on – except for of course cataloguing my books and finding book reviews, which are the two things I do most on the site. I tried to find it on my own but failed and had to get there from the link on Wendi’s blog.
Lo and behold there is a quote from me on there!
“I like being able to have an image of the book and other members’ listings and reviews. You can find photos of authors and suggestions for more reading. It’s easy to add in books as LibraryThing does all the work for you using data imported from booksellers and a long list of libraries.”
It’s about a third of the way down the page the last entry in a blue centre column called “Librarians say”, which is amazing – I’m not a librarian any more, although I used to be one! The link is to a Booking Through Thursday post on cataloguing I wrote nearly two years ago on my old blog on Blogger. I’m thrilled!
