For this week's Tuesday Thingers topic, Wendi is asking about using LT's "Local" tab:
When you click on the Local tab, do you see any information? Do you find the information you see useful? Have you added any information? If you don't already use the Local tab, is it something you would use more often if there were more events listed?
Yes, indeed. Since I live in the Washington DC area, with all its surrounding Virginia and Maryland suburbs included, I have plenty of offerings to choose from in my "Local" section. But while I do enjoy checking out all the local happenings, I haven't really taken advantage of it much. The only bookish event I've attended within recent memory was last year's National Book Festival in DC. That was fun, but I just don't really go to readings or book signings much. So I don't know how useful the information really is for me – but I do find it interesting.
I'm more interested in the book store and library listings. I've found several good used book sources there. And I've even added one or two, myself – although I don't really remember which ones they were!
