Tuesday Thingers

Today's question: Cataloging sources. What cataloging sources do you use most? Any particular reason? Any idiosyncratic choices, or foreign sources, or sources you like better than others? Are you able to find most things through LT's almost 700 sources?

My answer: I use Amazon most frequently for most of the books I input. Most of my books are pretty easy-t0-find fiction, nonfiction and graphic novels, so I haven't needed too many other sources. I have like 716 works cataloged through Amazon. After that the next largest source for me is Amazon.fr, for my French books, and 16 that I entered manually, mostly zines. When I was setting up my husband's LT account I used Amazon.co.uk quite a bit for all of his British science fiction, especially his large collection of Doctor Who books. What about you?

Can someone give me the code again for inserting a link in the comments? I am apparently doing something wrong since it keeps linking to my blogger sign-in page every time!!

Thanks :)

Like you, Marie, Amazon is my biggest source for finding the books in my library.

My response is up. I may be a little late getting to everyone's blog to see their responses.

Mine is up and for the most part it is Amazon. Thanks for reminding me about using the Amazon sites in Europe. I have a few French books I have had trouble with and I will try that.

I'll just post my answer here because it's hardly unique: all but one or two of mine have been found with the default, Amazon.
