Look Inside Jack’s Library
I stumbled onto a new toy called Library Thing. Here is how the service describes itself:
What is LibraryThing?
LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhereâ€”even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth.
I spent a chunk of time entering som eof the books in my own library. I thought that this would be kind of fun. If you are curious to learn more about what books I own you can find the link here. As I understand it the free service only allows you to list a total of 200 books. At some point in time I need to decide if it is worth a couple of bucks to share more with you.
Anyway, I need to give Fern credit for tipping me off to this.

Try it. It is easy enough to use.

Correct. It is easy to use. I found it to be interesting to see my collection start to materialize in print.
Makes it pretty easy to see where my interests are.
A fountain of information. Hmm….I suppose so.

That’s kinda clever and cool link. Maybe I’ll catalogue (200 of) the books in my library too.

here’s one I have been seeing for awhile, a young Jewish girl that I just found out knew she was Jewish, she is an aspiring film star in NY. moges.blogspot.com
Oh, the library thing, somebody burned all my books.

You’re quite welcome! I guess the fact that within a few hours you already have your library cataloged is proof that Library Thing is quick and easy to use.
