If yesterday was Monday, this must be Tuesday. I miss those mats in the elevators telling you what day it is, so I am a little confused. But I do know if it is Tuesday, it must be time for Tuesday Thinger and time to see what is going on over at Library Thing! So, from Wendi's Book Corner"
...some wonderful news from the Library Thing Blog!
You can now add books to different collections and then view just those collections! Some of the pre-designed collections include: Wishlist, Currently Reading, To Read, Read But Unowned, and Favorites. Then of course you can add your own collections too!
Questions: Have you explored the new Collections feature? Do you plan to use the new Collections? Are you going to add any special collections? If so, what are they?"
Oh my, I leave for a few weeks, and the holy grail of Library Thing has appeared! This has been perhaps the most anticipated feature among many, many members, long discussed on various threads. It was promised and promised, "literally years in the making", and at last, it has appeared!
I will most certainly use it, but I will have to give careful consideration to exactly how. This is nothing to rush into, because LT is all about the organization. Nice, neat, lovely collections...
I know for sure it will not be some sort of read/unread thing. While, as I have said before, I am not intimidated by my rather large TBR pile, I am not sure that I want that collection staring at me all the time. Also, I tend to forget to move them from one to the other as you would know if you saw my Goodreads list...useless.
Now that "Read but not owned one" is good, for library books or books I gave away or that left me in various ways. It might save me looking for a book in my house that I know I read but can't seem to find anymore. Afterall, LT is all about helping me keep track of my books.
But that all will take some thought. And many happy hours fooling around with it.
What I must say is that, as is usually the case with Library Thing, I am very happy that they have left it so open, left it up to you to personalize it and use it however you want to.
As Tim, our fearless LT leader, has said, it is still a work in progress and no doubt the various ways to use it will be happily discussed and debated in the various threads and more features added...and I will be checking them out.
Oh, more lovely neat lists.....
