Library Thing

If you are on the hunt for a place to organize your reading material, discover new authors and titles, and become part of a community of like-minded book lovers, I would highly recommend LibraryThing. This social networking site makes all of these tasks easy. The website has excellent search engines that allow you to read reviews of books and receive recommendations based on your reading profile. It's free to catalog up to 200 titles.

As a staff developer, I see a lot of potential with this tool for teachers and staff developers alike. With Saskatchewan in the process of renewing all of its curriculum, this would be a fantastic avenue to collaboratively review new curriculum resources at a specific level. For example... imagine if all Grade 5 teachers formed a group and each selected one of the new resources to read/view/share with the larger community! Many hands make light work!

It's easy to sign up for your free account.If you want to locate me, I can be found at ydenomy.
