Thing # 11
Library Thing is a great way to organize books. I especially enjoy the option to discuss books with other people online. My Library Thing is still in the beginning stages, mainly because I prefer Shelfari. For me the visual of the books on a bookshelf is nicer. Also, in Shelfari as you add a book, you go through incorporating tags, reviews, and other information all at once. I plan to suggest this to English teachers so that their students can have an accurate account of all they have read. After checking out the YA literature group, I was a little disappointed that people set up an entire discussion asking which YA characters people have crushes on when reading, but still collected titles of books I want to read or suggest for my students. All in all this is a nice site.
