I discovered a great little web site over the weekend. It is called LibraryThing. LibraryThing is an on line service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth. LibraryThing also searches the Library of Congress, all five national Amazon sites, and more than 80 world libraries to pull your book data. All you do is provide a title or ISBN. You can edit your information, search and sort it, “tag” books with your own subjects, or use the Library of Congress and Dewey systems to organize your collection.
If you’re like me and have a lot of books spread out through several rooms of your house, then LibraryThing is the site for you. You can setup an account that will allow you to catalog up to 200 books for FREE. And, all you need to provide is a user name and password.
