No, a “Library Thing” is not a dismembered hand that sorts and reshelves stray books after the library has closed.
It’s a neat website where readers (and extreme booklovers) share and discuss their personal libraries. It’s a way to organize your collection, or a way to find and interact with fans of the same books. It was recently covered in a great article in the NY Times.
I’m now officially a Library Thing Author and welcome you to drop by and see what weird sort of things I’ve been reading. I invite you, too, to join in the fun.
