This week’s question, courtesy of Marie at the Boston Biliophile: So the question this week is- how many books do you have cataloged in your LibraryThing account? How do you decide what to include- everything you have, everything you’ve read- and are there things you leave off?
Haha. I have 1049 books cataloged in my LibraryThing account. To me it was a no-brainer what to include. I own all 1049. I don’t really understand adding books that you’ve only read… although I know that some people do. But to me the purpose is to have all of the books in your library listed, thus the name LibraryThing. If I get rid of a book, I’ll delete the entry on LibraryThing. Although, for EarlyReviewer books I’ll keep them listed on my account even though I may give them away. (This is because your review will disappear if you delete a book from your library.) I suppose I’ll just tag those books accordingly. But that’s the only case of a book being in my library that I don’t own.
