Homework, part 1 — WLSlearns, Library Thing

Well, here it is, the middle of the night again. Oh, well!

I’ve been madly adding books to my new Library Thing page. I also made an avi for myself to stick on the page, and signed up to be an early reviewer. Oh! and I added a widget to this page, which will show random books I’ve read (or am reading).

Library Thing does seem useful — there’s definitely a lot to do and explore there! The downside might be that I have to give up my Goodreads account. I definitely don’t have time for both, but I really want to explore them both and see which one I like better.

Off the top of my head, I’d say Librarything is a tad more technical, with all its options for getting the exact edition information of the book you have in your hand. Or even adding book information. It seems more geared toward librarians, while Goodreads seems to be more for casual readers. But I like them both!
