Week #8, Thing #19

I really had fun setting up my account on Library Thing.  I learned that individuals, small libraries, and classrooms use this website to catalog their books.  I added seven books to complement my WebQuest on Clouds and you can find the books here.  I love that the cover of the books are shown and that I can see the author, copyright date, and the users who have added the books as well as comments.  I found that The Cloud Book by Tomie dePaola was the most popular book that I added!

I also looked at the ways people can communicate and find others with similar books interests on this website.  I typed in my city and state under "Local" to see who was using this service in my area.  I love that you can connect with others in this way.


  1. Hi Laura,

    I didn't see the "Local" feature. Thanks for pointing this out. I will have to play around with that.
