Tuesday Thingers!

Cataloging sources. What cataloging sources do you use most? Any particular reason? Any idiosyncratic choices, or foreign sources, or sources you like better than others? Are you able to find most things through LT's almost 700 sources?

I use amazon the most. I also manually enter a lot of things like comics and zines (still have a stack to read and enter!) I use amazon because they usually have what I want and I manually enter because the zines/comics don't have isbns.

Here's the breakdown:
471amazon.com
93Amazon.com
77Manual entry
28manual entry
9Library of Congress
7amazon.co.uk

Not sure why there are two amazon's and two manual entries. Does anyone else's show up like that? I think the amazon uk is for some of the books I bought while in England. Not sure what I used the Library of Congress for.

What's your breakdown look like? You can find it at your Librarything Profile and then under Statistics.

  2. J. Kaye- I just love that stats page, I probably memorized it like a year ago I was so obsessed. That's before I discovered the message boards!

  3. The stats page is cool!

    I like just surfing around on LT - I always find something interesting. Have you seen that pile of books contest? I just picked out some books to photograph for it.
