LibraryThing | Catalog your books online

oooh fun!
Through Library Stuff, I found Library thing. A quick way to catalogue your books so that every one can mine your data and try to use that personal info to their advantage…or, er, just a fun way to stay organized. 🙂

So I inputted 25 of my books. Actually I tried several more, but since it is using LC my isbns weren’t all valid since I have several books that have Canadian, French and UK isbns. Those will have to be inputted manually, and well, it’s already past my bedtime!

You can click on my library to see my list. If you go to the Users and Statistics page you can see the folks with the most books or most recent activity and the most popular tages. It’s nice for once just relying on someone else to do the cataloguing – no worrying about incorrect deweys or bad subject headings!

The use of tags is also nice since we all know how confining LCSH is :p although I suspect some of my tags mirror subject headings that I’ve used lately…

Just another fun tool to use!
