Thing # 11

LibraryThing is a great tool. it is very easy to use and i was able to find the books that i wanted to add easily. i liked how it showed different editions of the books so you could pick a different cover if you wanted to. Also, i really like how it gave a list of all the characters in the book and a good description. i will be able to use that aspect of this tool in choosing books for my students to read. i looked at some of the groups and they were helpful also, i can read what others are saying about the books and use that to help determine if it is what i am looking for. there were so many groups i found many of them that i was interested in. overall this is a great tool, especially for librarians and english teachers!

Are you finding some titles for us to think about for our book club this fall? Have a look at Whistling in the Dark and let me know what you think about it.
