Get your book groove on with LibraryThing

Posted on August 22, 2006. Filed under: books, general, website |

I love books. Of course, I love to read books, but I also love the feel of books and the aesthetic of how they look stacked here and there, in shelves, in baskets, on my nightstand. I have a lot of books. I have so many books that I had to get a storage unit to hold some of them. I would rather pay to store my books than part with them. I’m silly that way. So when I stumbled across LibraryThing I was excited to see a Web 2.0 (whatever) social-networking site pop up that actually has some value for me. ‘Course I’ll never in a million years have the time to enter all my books (even with the obligatory bookmarklet), but it is interesting to see what other people have in their libraries and our interested in discussing. If you’re a bookworm, I suggest you give LibraryThing a whirl. You can catalog up to 200 books with a free account or upgrade to a paid account to catalog any number of books. Paid personal accounts cost $10 for a year or $25 for a lifetime.

Amiglia Family Software
Amiglia is a social software site for families, focused particularly on sharing photos and building a family tree.
After reading Emily Chang’s interview of the Amiglia founders, I decided to go sign up and give it a whirl. I haven’t had a chance to really play with it yet, but next month I’ll give an overall review of all the “family” sites I’ve tried out. In the meantime, you may want to check out Amiglia if you have an interest in building an online family tree and photo albums.
