LibraryThing is a site for book lovers. LibraryThing helps you create a library-quality catalog of your books. You can do all of them or just what you’re reading now. And because everyone catalogs online, they also catalog together. LibraryThing connects people based on the books they share.
LibraryThing gets all the right data from Amazon.com and over 690 libraries around the world, including the Library of Congress.
You can search your books, sort your books, edit book information, and apply “tags.” You can rate your books and write reviews.
It’s also full of social information. Each book page shows you who has the book and what they think about it—tags, reviews, even conversations. LibraryThing Local is a gateway to thousands of local bookstores, libraries and book festivals—and to all the author readings, signings, discussions and other events they host.
