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?
Ooh! Didn't know about the printable bookmarks. Will have to check them out.ReplyDelete
I didn't know about the bookmarks either. I'd like to know who's buying the thongs.ReplyDelete
I am not interested in LT stuff, either.ReplyDelete
I knew about the bookmarks (yes, I need to get out, too!), but not the classic thong - too funny!ReplyDelete
I've heard the cue cat is very useful. I never invested in one though and now that I enter books as they come in and have all the other books already cataloged, it seems pointless to get one now.ReplyDelete
I wasn't aware of the printable bookmarks. I'll have to check that out!
I didn't know about the bookmarks! I will check them out.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to know that the cuecat works well. And thanks for the heads up about the bookmarks. I don't actually use them, but my daughter does.ReplyDelete
The bookmarks sound cool. I'm going to check them out.ReplyDelete
I knew about the bookmarks but haven't done anything with them because I use magnetic bookmarks in my books. I might download one for my collection, though.ReplyDelete
I'm with Miz Onion...I wanna know who's buying the thongs!
I'm a bookmark junkie too so those really made my day.ReplyDelete
Seriously though, the LT butt-floss is going a bit too far :)
I didn't know about the printable book marks! I usually just use a magazine renewal card - they are always laying around anyway.ReplyDelete
I didn't know anything about the LT shop, but I think a t-shirt would be fun. The thongs are hilarious!ReplyDelete
I didn't know about the bookmarks, will have to check that out. Sure you don't want a thong for Christmas???ReplyDelete
