Catalog Your Personal Book Collection Online

If many of you out there are like me, you have hundreds of books sitting on your bookshelf at home in a certain order that only you can keep organized (to a point).  Personally, I shelf mine chronologically by author according to genre, but I am very OCD like that.  No matter what kind of order you may keep them in, it's still hard to keep track of them all.  Also, in case something devastating would happen wouldn't it be best to have a cataloging system listing all the titles you own? 

Now you can at Library Thing, an online cataloging site that allows you to enter your collection in a library-type catalog format. Library Thing allows you to catalog up to 200 titles for free, or as many as you like for $10 a year or $25 for life.  Library Thing also allows you to catalog with Amazon, the Library of Congress or 690 other world libraries. You can also get recommendations and tag your books, along with checking out other people's tags.  To find out more, take the Library Thing tour today.

I have been using Library Thing for maybe a couple of years now and I like it. For people who have blogs or other personal web pages, there are several widgets available for displaying part of your library, which is pretty cool.

I started out using Library Thing several months ago and liked it well enough, but I have since found and am now a fan of a similar site, Shelfari (www.shelfari.com)
