LibraryThing is one of my favorite web 2.0 sites. As I mentioned in an earlier post, it is Flickr for bookworms. One of my missions is to always have a book that I’m actively reading – something I keep around with a bookmark in it, reading it whenever I get a chance. Turns out LibraryThing is a great way for me to keep a pulse on all of it, if nothing else than to have a visual reminder of what it is I read so that I can stoke some memory of the details for the things I’ve been learning along the way.
As you can see, not a lot of this is fiction – just technical and theoretical mumbo-jumbo for the most part. It is my hope someday to get over the technology goals I currently have, and start reading something more fun, like some more Marquez or Lorca.
