Ever thought about cataloging your home library? I haven’t – too much like my day job. But for those of you who are looking for a winter project, there is an online solution! “LibraryThing” is available to help people catalog their books easily. Tim Spaulding, a web developer and web publisher based in Portland, Maine, is on Tancook Island Library 2the cutting edge of cyberspace, allowing people to maintain access to their own book collections, and then share the information online, sometimes described as “Facebook for books.” LibraryThing has over 44 million books available, and over a million users. You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth. A free account allows you to catalog up to 200 books – over that there is a small fee ($10 a year or $25 for a lifetime).
