Okay, so technically I’d like to be part of “Tuesday Thingers” over at LibraryThing, but I didn’t do it the first week. Anyways it’s week two and here’s my post regarding the theme. Anyone who is interesting in participating should head over to see Marie’s post at The Boston Bibliophile.
This week’s topic: Discussion groups. Do you belong to any (besides Early Reviewers)? Approximately how many? Are there any in particular that you participate in more avidly? How often do you check?
I belong to about 20 groups on LibraryThing (besides EarlyReviewers). And since you’re all dying to know which ones: Aboard the Jolly Roger, Alexander the Great, Ancient History, Anne Rice fans, Barnes & Noble First Look Readers, Black Dagger Brotherhood, Blog the Book, Bloggers, Book Sales, Council of Elrond, English History- Tudor through Edwardian, Historical Fiction, Historical Mysteries, I Love Jane Austen, Made into a Movie, Modern Library Collectors, Name that Book, Rare-Old or Offbeat, Urban Fantasy, Used Books, Vampire Fiction
I don’t really check them induvidually. Maybe once in awhile. Historical Fiction and Vampire Fiction the most I suppose. I’d like to see more posts in the Alexander the Great group since it’s one of my favorites, but there really isn’t too much interest. I just keep an eye on my talk page- set to my groups. That way I don’t really miss any new conversations. Haha that page I constantly refresh when I’m online. I feel like such a geek 🙂
How about you?
Edit: I also belong to about 110 Yahoo groups (prob half which I follow the discussions on through digest emails) which I will spare my fingers the pain of listing here.
Plus I follow probably around 30 or so customer discussions on amazon.com although the one I pay attention to most is ‘historical fiction in rome and ancient greece’.
And finally I belong to the following groups on facebook: Helium: Where Knowledge Rules, The ONE Campaign, Paul Gilligan Jr. Memorial Road Race, When I was your age Pluto was a planet, If you remember this you grew up in the 90s, 400000 Faces, A Mission From Gandalf- Sir Ian McKellen for ‘The Hobbit’, For Every 1000 that joins this group I will donate $1 for Darfur, Subaru at Drexel University, Legalize Same-Sex Marriage, Support Stem Cell Research, Anyone Who Thinks Dane Cook is Fucking Awesome, Haddon Heights Alumni, Yea I listen to Christmas Music For a Month Straight, Kathleen Sebelius for Governor Again!, LibraryThing.com Users.
