Tuesday Thingers

And the winner is...

The vote was 9 for Tuesday Things, 9 for Tuesday Thingers, and Tuesday Thingers won the coin toss. Thanks to everyone who voted! And thanks to The BookImp for the logo!

Okay, now down to business. This week's topic: Discussion groups. Do you belong to any (besides Early Reviewers)? Approximately how many? Are there any in particular that you participate in more avidly? How often do you check?

My answer: I've joined about 35, but there are less than a half dozen that I read avidly. I participate in Early Reviewers probably the most, followed by Jewish Bibliophiles and Librarians who LibraryThing. People are pretty civil and respectful for the most part- not a given in the online world. I think the caliber of the discussions tends to be pretty high, with lots of intelligent people saying interesting things.

And you?

Thanks for hosting this!

I belong to quite a few but I find most are not as active as ER. I especially like the Historical Fiction, Science Fiction Fans, and Kindley groups, and I find the Bookcases group to "interesting". There is never a shortage of obscure, creative bookcase pictures to look at. The funniest group by far is the Librarians who LibraryThing. They have three threads in particular that I find to be so funny. Here are the links for your enjoyment:

Groups are a lot of work. In addition to LT, I post on 2 internet forums - I could literally spend my entire day catching up on my threads!

Wow! I can barely manage the couple I visit. I like Librarything the most because I find there is so much useful stuff there.

Thanks so much for hosting this!

Hi thanks for hosting this...here is my post

Tuesday Thingers

Given the numbers of posts have you thought of using Mister Linky's? Weekly Geeks seem to make good use of it

Terri said...

I wrote a bit more in my blog entry - some about the nature of current modes of communications. It would be fun to hear some of your opinions about it!
Here's a link.

I'm actually trying to weed, as I don't normally read most of them, and many haven't had new posts in months.
