I’d read reference to LibraryThing several times before I finally checked it out. I had imagined it as a hangout for professional librarians, but it’s actually a place to catalogue your library and connect with other readers and authors, similar to Goodreads. Though not quite as intuitive, in my opinion.
Accounts are free, but have a limit of adding 200 books to your shelf. A paid account is $10 a year or $25 lifetime, with no book limit. I set up a free account and imported my book list from Goodreads, but I’m still learning my way around. I’ve considering doing a giveaway there.
If you have a published book, it’s probably listed at LibraryThing, so you might want to check out your book and author pages. I haven’t added much to mine other than a photo, but evidently, any member can fill in information on your author page, so I check occasionally to make sure someone hasn’t entered wrong information about me. 🙂
The Brevity of Roses page is rather sparse with only two reviews, so I’m asking for your help. If you’ve reviewed my novel somewhere else, I’d be grateful if you’d copy and paste it to my book’s page at LibraryThing.
And while you’re at LibraryThing, please add me as a friend!

Linda, really? Another place for me to haunt? Lol.
I will have to check it out, my friend. There are way too many places that I already ignore or spend only a little time visiting. *sigh* However, I ignore them at my peril.
As soon as I get a chance…
I feel your pain, Jimmy. This “socializing” we authors do is sheer madness. 😉
Hi Linda. Have you looked at Shelfari.com? It is similar to LibraryThing.
Yes, my book was there when I checked because Shelfari is associated with Amazon, so they automatically add your book. I need to spend some time there adding to my book page though.
