Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about online book sites…
Do you have an account with an online book database site (LibraryThing, Shelfari, GoodReads etc)? If so, do you have a preference? Do you use it for – your own record keeping? finding new books to read? social networking?
*blushes like mad* I have an account with all three. Only because I post reviews on the books I’ve read. However I have broken it down so I use them each for a different purpose:
Shelfari: I started with this one. Its’ wishlist is …LARGE. I use this one the most to add books on my wishlist that are only available at the library.
LibraryThing: I use this wishlist for the books I want to buy 🙂 also, I use this one for their images of bookcovers to save and put into my blog when I do my reviews.
I don’t use any for social networking. I used to, but noticed some of the groups I have joined are filled with elitist book snobs that are holier than thou and think you should only read “this one” because they say so. Bleh. So I stopped joining those groups.
However if you want to see what I’ve been reading/have read just look me up if you’d like 🙂 All three accounts are under Sensitivemuse. Shelfari has the bigger list as I joined that first long before I’ve heard of the other two.
