ABEBOOKS LINKS UP WITH PERSONAL LIBRARY WEB SITE

Ken Schultz writes: "Thank you for the great job you continue
to do as editor! I can't tell you how greatly appreciated all
of your hard work is!

This week LibraryThing.com and ABE.com announced the latter is
taking a 40% stake in the former. I can't recall seeing anyone
in NBS writing about their experience with LibraryThing.com. I
was not familiar with the site until the announcement today --
I do hit ABE at least weekly.  After a little browse and read
of its FAQ, I thought it was intriguing enough to bounce to you.
Perhaps Tom Fort has an opinion on this site since he has
graciously made his incredible E. Tomlinson Fort "Memorial"
Library available on the NBS web site."

[Actually, Jeff Reichenberger mentioned LibraryThing in the
E-Sylum late last year (v8n48, November 13, 2005), although no
one has given us a review of their experience with it.  Jeff
wrote: I stumbled onto a web site that might interest some of
our fellow 'philes: Librarything.com

You can catalog your personal library, share it or
keep it private, categorize, tag, and otherwise set it
up just the way you want it.   Up to 200 books is free,
Unlimited entries for $10/year, $25/lifetime. Enjoy!
