Thing 11....Library Thing

Wow, this was probably one of the most simple "things" we have done yet! It took me all of 60 seconds to create an account, log in, and begin searching for titles to add to my library! To begin with I only added the books that I have used as read alouds for my fifth grade class this year. I left off the ones that we tried but they seemed disinterested in. I can see using the website to get ideas for more read alouds, books to order for the library, book reviews, etc. The list goes on and on! Library Thing also has those friendly little tags that you can use to search topics. You don't have to know an author or title just to find a specific book. Also, the group functions are really cool! Library Thing has a group for everything from bugs to Bolivia! There is definately a group (or several) for anyone to join!!!
