You have 4, 5-shelve bookshelves full of books on subjects that interest you and that you often write about on your blog, in one fashion or another, but can sharing what’s in your collection, in an organized way, with a wider audience, bring social media benefits to you?
I think so. LibraryThing joins Goodreads on my list of book sites to consider in this regard.
LibraryThing is a cataloging and social networking site for book lovers; a community of people, world-wide, with shared interests, who work together, via the detailed info they provide on their books, to catalog their collections, and share information.
There are member forums and an Early Reviewers program.
LibraryThing gets its book data from Amazon.com and over 700 libraries around the world, including the Library of Congress. That number of resources, alone, boggled my mind.
