Tuesday Thingers and a Singer

From our host The Boston Bibliophile:  So the question this week is- how many books do you have cataloged in your LibraryThing account? How do you decide what to include- everything you have, everything you’ve read- and are there things you leave off?

I only have 116 books in my LT account right now, but I’ve only started adding them in the last couple months. They are books I either own or I’ve read very recently, and I have many more to add.  I pass on many books I’ve read to friends and I donate a lot of books to my local library.  My kids give a lot of their books away too, but for some reason we get far more than we give.  The kids have received bags of books from neighbors with older kids and friends with older siblings. Some people are just book magnets, I suppose, and my girls and I have powerful magnetic fields!  Or maybe it’s just good book karma- what goes around comes around.  Oooo, that reminds me of that Justin Timberlake song I just added to my iPod.  Here’s JT doing his thing- enjoy!  I know I will!



Tuesday Thingers

Library Thing’s Early Reviewers group has started a Tuesday meme called “Tuesday Thingers”.  Is it just me, or does that sound mildly pornographic?  No?  It’s just me then.  Clearly I need to get my mind out of the gutter!  So.  What’s a thinger?  It is a weekly meme, I guess, in which a question will be asked each Tuesday (hosted by Marie of The Boston Bibliophile) and then answered individually on the blogs of other Thingers from the Early Reviewers group.  I am relatively new to Library Thing, but I really like it, and I just snagged my first early review book (it was an April bonus selection and it arrived today.  Very exciting!)  So, without further ado,  here is this week’s topic:

Discussion groups. Do you belong to any (besides Early Reviewers)? Approximately how many? Are there any in particular that you participate in more avidly? How often do you check?  

I only belong to 3 groups including Early Reviewers, and I’m not that active on any of them.  I used to be involved in several discussion groups but I cut my participation WAY back when I started blogging.  There are only so many hours in the day, and I felt that I wasn’t getting that much out of them.  Maybe I just haven’t found the right groups.  

What about you?  Do you belong to any online discussion groups?  You don’t have to be a Thinger to answer that.
