It’s a Library Thingby Charity Tahmaseb
It was just what I didn’t need: a way to spend more time on the internet. Oh, sure, it looks innocent enough, scholarly even. I mean, anything to do with books can’t be a bad thing, can it?
Oh, it can. What is this new internet temptress? I give you:
I’ve wanted to start a database to catalog my books for a long time now. Thought about using an Excel spreadsheet or Microsoft Access. Then I discovered Library Thing.
This way is much, much more fun. And I can’t seem to stop with just myself (my library, a work in progress, I’ve been cataloging books in my direct line of sight). So far, I’ve created a library thing for Wet Noodle Posse books and one for my local Sisters in Crime chapter for Minnesota Mystery Authors.
You can establish a free account and add up to 200 books, or take the plunge (like I did) and buy a lifetime membership and add as many books as you like. Either way, it’s a scholarly pursuit.
