This week, Boston Bibliophile’s question for the Tuesday Thingers is about LibraryThing stuff:
LT Things - t-shirts, bags, cue cats - are you into the "stuff"? Do you use a cuecat to enter your books, or do you enter them manually? What do you think of the stuff?
I wouldn’t say I’m really into the LibraryThing stuff. I think this was the first time I’ve ever looked at the “shop” and all its items for sale. Don’t think I’m likely to buy T-shirts or stickers or magnets, but the tote bag and coffee mug might be something I’d be interested in. Probably not the Classic Thong, though. Even if it is made in the USA.
I did buy a Cue-cat, back when I first started getting serious about listing all our books. And it was really helpful for cataloguing the newer books that have barcodes. Lately I’ve been listing mostly older books, so I haven’t used the “cat” in a while. But I still think it was a good purchase, and yes, it is very cute. Right now, though, it’s sitting in a drawer by my computer where I can’t even see it.
Another thing I hadn’t known about before today – LT has printable bookmarks! I had a little trouble getting them to download in pdf form, so I had to open them in Word to see them. But that worked fine. And it was very exciting, since I'm a real bookmark junkie. Well, that passes for excitement around here anyway. Think maybe I need to get out more?
