Tuesday Thingers


Today's question: LT and RL (real life)- do you have friends in real life that you met through LibraryThing? Have you attended any LT meet-ups in your area? Would you be open to attending meet-ups or is LT strictly an online thing for you?

My answer: I don't have any friends that I met through LT but I have a few real-world friends who are also LT friends. I haven't attended a meet up but I'm open to it. There was a get-together in Cambridge a few months ago but I was busy or something and didn't get to go. I would make more of an effort next time though since I'd be interested to meet some folks on LT and many of them are local. I'm always a little nervous meeting people from online but I'd give it a try.

What a great question, BB! You always think of good ones. I missed answering last week because I wanted to go take a picture of an old bookstore - work and the Olympics took up too much of my time.

My answer is here

I think I'd be nervous meeting online people too- but it helps that I know we're all a little (or a lot) book crazy.

I'm still up too!

My answer is here.

Very cool question, that I am sure we have all thought about at one time or another since being introduced to the internet.

I've yet to meet anyone that I've connected with on LT ... I'm a bit uncomfortable with it, too (is it my age?!?) ... I feel like I'd be doing everything I tell my kids *not* to do.

I'm up!

The internet is a great way to meet people (we are obviously not all axe murderers!), so I think this is a great question.

Good question. Hadn't thought about it. Didn't even know there might be such a thing as LT meet-ups. Here's my answer.

I hope no one minds, but I took this one a little tongue in cheek. If you do, then I wouldn't read here.

I was at that meet up...and next time you really need to come. It was a lot of fun to be able to put faces to names that you run across on LT. We promise not to bite...

much. ;-)

Tuesday Thingers on Friday - my answer's up.

The online/RL intersection was kind of a theme on my blog this week, so this question fit in very well.
