Home Again, Home Again Tuesday Thingers!

In case you noticed, I have not posted in a week or so. Christmas...work...Bandit the wonder dog. So many distractions and I have not gotten in the habit of pre-writing posts so....

Well, anyhoo, it is Tuesday, and the new host of Tuesday Thingers, Wendi at Wendi's Book Corner, has post this weeks question. Thank you Wendi!

Today's question: 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

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?

It's funny, when I first started, I spent a lot of time on the Your Library page, tweaking this and that, adding tags, fixing pictures and such. Oddly enough, I can get a wee bit OCD about such things.
But then, I discovered Groups! Hey, why didn't someone tell me about this? I think I have said it before, but as much as I love LT, the tour of the various features available and how it all works is, or at least was when I joined, rather confusing. So, it was awhile before I tumbled into the groups. But now, without doubt, they occupy the majority of my time on the LT site. Green Dragon, ARC Junkies, Bloggers, Tea, and a few others. If you have an interest, there is most likely a group there about it.

If not, create one!
Of course, then you might be one of those numerous groups with only one member...sad. Hey,trollops for Trollope is looking for members! Or Puppet Lovers! Two members there, you can make it three. You know you just love those puppets.

I wonder if there is a group for imaginary kitties, don't you Kitty? Maybe we should start it.


  1. The groups section is one of my favorites, too. I haven't been on as often as I'd like and mainly joined the bloggers groups. I'm going to get more involved though. I just need the time!

    Happy Tuesday!

  2. KIKI! YOU DID NOT LINK BACK TO ME! boohoo, im sad. esp because you and my mom are leaving me all alone today to go to philly..=( acutally, im looking forward to some alone time. ive been kind of smothered this whole time...


  3. I spent a lot of time with several of the Groups when I first discovered them, but I've only stuck with a few. There does seem to be a group for just about every interest!

  4. Oh - I love the groups! I can get lost there for hours at a time!

    Thanks for participating in Thingers this week!

    Happy New Year!


  5. I have gotten a lot of good ARC sources on ARC Junkies too! But I probably spend the most time in the Green Dragon...there can be some very funny posts there, and a bit of interesting ones..and a lot of just silly ones.

    And Wendi, let me add my thanks for taking on the hosting of Thingers!

  6. Bandit..I am sorry for not linking back. But you already have more followers than me so....so there!.

    As to leaving you alone all day. Well, they don't let dogs in Ikea.

    It was a fun day...except the part with it ending with the cops at my house!

  7. trollops for Trollope- great name :-)


please speak up, I LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!!
