Tried out LibraryThing today. I set up an account and started my catalog, added titles, tags and reviews. Looked at Librarians Who LibraryThing and Thingology; they were interesting. I checked out other reviews on some of the titles I entered and noted that there are numerous cloud indexes to browse. I could not find ThingLang, ISBN Check or MARCThing although I looked everywhere for them. I can see how people would enjoy the social aspect of talking about books, sharing book reviews and getting recommendations from others. I would likely use LibraryThing mostly to get ideas for my next book to read or to provide Reader's Advisory assistance.
