Library Thing for Libraries

LibraryThing is a great way to keep details of what you have in your own library, or of the books you have read or want to read. I have been a member since 2007, and have 173 of my own books listed.

It is so easy to navigate, I only needed to add the ISBNs of my books into the site and all the details of the books appeared. I am able to see other lists and can join book discussions; there are even free books and member giveaways.

I have so many books I still want to read that I will soon be starting a new list on LibraryThing of ‘Books to Read’.

In our school LibraryThing is linked to the catalogue so students can find book reviews or see similar titles to books they like to read.
