My Library Thing

After a recommendation in this week’s Technology Guardian I discovered [LibraryThing]( another beta/web2.0/link/social/tagging web site. This time for books. I’ve started putting [my book collection]( into it. Apart from the benefits of having a complete library catalogue on-line, the social networking aspects could be interesting. It can also be used in marking books for a class reading list. See [EG-146 Reading List]( as an example.
