Library Thing




I was looking for a widget to display the books I'm reading in my sidebar, and I stumbled across a site called "Library Thing." It's a site where you can catalogue your library of books, get suggestions on new reads and create a lovely widget like the one you see in my sidebar. I know that you can do some of the same things with Amazon, but sometimes it's nice to have a non-commercial reference source.


I'm actually thinking of doing an Amazon order soon. I want to get a few things I've had my eye on for a while, like Flea Market Style, Simple Sewing with a French Twist, Japanese Bookbinding and - as if that's not enough! - a fiction book, but I'm not sure which one. With all the suggestions from Amazon and Library Thing, I'm a bit overwhelmed. Any one out there have any ideas?

Hi Trudi, French sewing is also on my Amazon wish list. And that bookbinders book looks also quite good to me!

I noticed that you have been reading Alice Munro lately : do you know the great Carol Shields ? She is my favorite writer. If you haven't read her yet, I suggest Republic of love. I wish she was still alive so I could hope for another book.
