This week's question: LibraryThing's Recently Added feature: do you look at it? Do you use it for ideas? Is there something listed there now that looks interesting to you? What have you added to your LT library recently?
The Recently Added feature is probably one of the things I pay the most attention to on the main page. I like the way that you are given just a few books to look at every time you see this page. For some reason, with the other larger lists around the site, I find myself overwhelmed and moving on. But with this feature it’s like reading the books feature in a magazine – quick and helpful.
I find it very interesting and I have added books to my wishlist after seeing them on the Recently Added gadget. LibraryThing is being difficult at the moment and giving me a loading error so I cannot find the specific titles that I noticed just this morning *grrr*
But I do know which books I have most recently added. Being a organizing freak about books I also keep a spreadsheet (because you never know when the apocalypse will hit, cutting off the internet access and leaving you without a booklist for those bookshop looting sprees)
