Tuesday Thingers: Go Local!

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!

Tuesday Thingers is hosted by Wendi of Wendi's Book Corner. If you'd like to see more or participate yourself, head on over to her blog and leave a comment.


  1. It's not fair! My 'events' is empty!

    I guess I could add stuff, but since I may be the only Library Thinger around here, I would be the only person looking at it then.

  2. My events are always empty too :(

  3. My events have always been empty too, but I added one today after I read Wendi's post.

  4. I've never noticed the local tab. I'll check it out.

  5. heeey you know I didn't even pay attention to that local thing until I clicked on it just now. I found a used book store close by!!!! hooray! shopping time!

  6. :) I don't generally go to the events either - there was one I REALLY wanted to make it to, but I couldn't work it in. I do stop and check the local events from time to time, but not regularly.

    Thanks for stopping by and participating in Thingers last week! I've got the post up for this week. ~ Wendi


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
