Tuesday again, and once more Boston Bibliophile has another thought-provoking question for the Thingers group:
LT and RL (real life) – do you have friends in real life that you met through LibraryThing? Have you attended any LT meet-ups in your area? Would you be open to attending meet-ups or is LT strictly an online thing for you?
Well, I only know of two “real-life” people who have LibraryThing accounts. One is my cousin, and she’s definitely a friend (and surrogate sister). And the other is a former colleague of my husband’s – and he was also a friend before either of us signed up for LT. But I don’t have any real-life friends that I’ve met through LT.
And I haven’t attended any meet-ups. Would I be open to attending one? Well, I don’t know. It would depend a lot on what sort of a meet-up it would be, I guess. And when and where (and how convenient). Generally, I’m not much of a joiner, online or in the real world. And I’m still a fairly recent arrival in cyberspace, so I think I’d be a little cautious about meeting someone I’ve only “talked to” via the Internet.
Still, I have met some very nice people through book blogging – especially the Thingers group, of course. And I certainly like the idea of being part of such a book-obsessed bunch of
