Thing #11

LibraryThing: I really think this website is such a great way to share your personal reading lists with others! It is also a great resource to use to read book reviews to add to your "must read" list. I created my LibraryThing account last weekend, and I have been adding more books to my list as I look on my bookshelves at home and in my classroom. I checked out some of the groups on LibraryThing, and I joined the Read YA Lit group. I teach junior high school students, and I also have one "tween" and one teenager at home, so I like to keep up with the latest books in young adult literature. LibraryThing will be one of the Web 2.0 applications I would like to implement when I become a librarian so that students and teachers can share their reading interests with each other.

  1. It's fun to see other people's booklists on LibraryThing or Shelfari and get ideas for books to read! I like your idea of students and teachers sharing their reading interests through using these tools! Students already share verbally... this would really capture even more interest!
