I love trying out anything new, especially new links or games. This time, I decided to try LibraryThing. This is a book website that is very similar in concept to Shelfari. Although I quite like Shelfari and use it to virtually catalogue all the books I have read and love, I would like to add the catalogue to this WordPress blog (an action that is not supported).
Anyway, until I can actually add widgets to my blog, I guess I have to remain contented with this.
Apart from all this widget brouhaha, here are my humble opinions on LibraryThing. It looks like a real, professional site for hard-core book lovers and bloggers. One neat concept is the early recommendation program – they provide electronic copies of unreleased books that you can download, read, and review. Veerry nice ! It appears that you can even request a book sent to you (but I think for that, you have to be an enthusiastic, popular book blogger living in the States). All three I am not 🙂 . I however like the Shelfari interface and the user experience to be much better.
