Tuesday Thingers


Today's question: Members who have your books. Do you ever look at this feature? Do you use it to make LT friends, or compare notes? There are three tabs- weighted, raw, and recent. "Weighted," which means "weighted by book obscurity and library size" is probably the least self-explanatory of the three, whereas "raw" and "recent" are more so. Do you get any kind of use out of this feature?

My answer: I've looked at it, and used it a few times to friend people or see what others have who have similar interests as evinced through their libraries. It's kind of interesting. On my profile the users who show up under the "recent" tab are mostly bloggers like me. It's fun to play with now and then.

My post is up. I like to look at it, but not really to use it.

My answer is here.

Like George Leigh Mallory with Mt. Everest, I read the box about similar libraries "because it's there". (but I don't seek it out or add all those other books to my own mountain of TBRs)

Marie - I just meant the explanation that was given in the question. I'm a complete newbie to LibraryThing, so I really had no clue what "weighted" meant. :) I haven't spent a whole lot of time figuring out all of the features on the site yet. I love all of your questions!
