LibraryThing is For Booklovers

Written by Emma Woodhouse

Do you love to read? Then take two minutes out of your day and sign up for a LibraryThing account!

LibraryThing is the premier book-cataloging site online, and it is amazingly easy to get started. Search for your favorite reads of all time, add it to your virtual library, and let the fun begin! You can browse the libraries of members who share your literary interests, see or write reviews and ratings, and view or make book recommendations.

It’s a great way to keep track of books you love, books you’ve borrowed, or even to keep tabs on your textbooks. As if this couldn’t get any better, LibraryThing is international. You literally have a unique opportunity to connect with readers from all over the world. It’s a great way to join in to Regent’s global initiative and find out more about the reading interests in different countries.

LibraryThing has a massive social network attached to it, and there are groups dealing with anything and everything. From finding the forgotten title of that great book you remember reading, to discussions about the veracity of the Bible, you are certain to find like-minded (and not-like-minded) readers who are more than willing to have you join in or start a conversation.

So go to LibraryThing today and sign up for your free account! Once you do, you can e-mail Harold Henkel at harohen@regent.edu with your LibraryThing username for a special invitation to Regent Readers, and join the members of the Regent community who are already making use of this amazing site. Hope to see you there soon-and happy reading!
