Librarything

December 16, 2006

If you haven’t been there yet, you simply have to. Librarything is one of the coolest places on the Internet if you’re an avid reader as well as a writer. The people out there are different from other communities like MySpace or LiveJournal. The main difference is that this community,
which is over 111,000 strong and growing is comprised solely of… readers!

People who love books, who not only read them, but buy them. You can belong to different groups within Librarything. For instance, I belong to a group of Canadian Readers, an SF reading group, a Writer-readers group, and a What Are You Reading Now? group.

I also added a lot of Zumayans and fellow writers in my library. The titles in the readers’ libraries are directly and automatically linked to amazon and if you belong to amazon’s associates program, it links your account as well. In addition, you don’t need to know html to add a link to the books or authors you mention in your posts. Everything is done with brackets.

The place is cool, I tell you.

BTW, you don’t need to “own” all the books in your library (although if you do, you can swap books with other readers), mostly you include those you read. In addition, if you’re an author and you have at least 50 books in your library (including them is dead easy), you can belong
to the Librarything Authors list.

    Have to agree. Cool place and very easy to use. I like that now there are also extra tags that can be added.
