Tuesday Thingers!


Wendi of Wendi's Book Corner has taken over as the host of Tuesday Thingers! Her first question asks: What area are you most familiar with? What area is your favorite? What area are you curious about? Are there any that you have not really looked at?

Here is a list of the main areas of Library Thing:

1. Home (http://www.librarything.com/, before you log in)
2. Home (once you log in, contains Your Home, Your Profile, Connections, Recommendations, Reviews, Statistics, Clouds, Gallery, Memes)
3. Profile (Recent activity, tags, comments, members with your books)
4. Your Library
5. Your Tags
6. Add Books
7. Talk
8. Groups
9. Local
10. Search
11. Zeitgeist (Stats, Top Lists)
12. Tools (Widgets, Store)
13. Blog

I probably spend the most time on the Groups page keeping up with those that I follow. I do like the customizable home page. I always get great ideas from the books being added under connection news. I also use tags, my library and add books page frequently. I used to have my link set to my profile page, but recently changed it to my home page. Now I don't visit my profile page all that often.

The areas that I use the least are Local, Zeitgeist, Tools and Blog. It seems I only go to these areas when I am looking for something specific.

I really like some of the groups, but am totally lost with the Local tab. I think I'll see what I can find on that one - I don't even know if it is used!

Thanks for participating in Thingers this week Melissa!

Happy New Year!

I am really glad this round robin didn't die out. Awesome that Wendy is taking over. :)
