Here is today’s Tuesday Thingers question:
Blog Widgets. Do you use them? Do you have them on your blog? Do you know what I’m talking about? A blog widget is that list of books “From my LibraryThing” and such, that you’ll sometimes see on someone’s sidebar. If you use it, do all of your books show up or do you have it set to only show certain books? Do you have a search widget, which would allow your blog readers to search your library? Have you ever made a photomosaic of your book covers? You can find widgets and photomosaic information on the “Tools” tab in LibraryThing.
I wasn’t using a blog widget, but I am now! I’ve added it to my middle sidebar, down below. I have it set to show recent books, and I’ve chosen 12 covers. I don’t have the search widget up, though.
I’m curious about something, though. Do people enter only books they actually own into LibraryThing, or do you use it to keep track of all the books you’ve read or that you have on hand in your TBR pile? I’ve been using it to track all the books I own plus all the books I’ve read, including ones that I’ve later given away or swapped or returned to the library.
