My bookshelf, online

Last night I discovered a wonderful little online tool, LibraryThing, for tracking one’s reading habits. It can search the LIbraray of Congress and Amazon to return info on thousands of books and thumbnails of their covers. It’s simple to add books to your “library,” rate them, and see what others like you have enjoyed reading. So far I’ve only added 23 books to my library, from old favourites to impressive newer books, and the system has recommended I read things like Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. Note my catalog includes The Uninvited Guest (pictured).
A nice site to check out on a rainy Saturday…
