Rainy Sunday moment : The Cold - Tony Hancock classic


Rainy Sunday - Auckland
Couldn't find a YouTube of the classic Hancock, rainy Sunday, "stone me, at least her gravy used to move about" - but this one, The Cold, isn't a bad substitute, especially given the current obsession with swine flu, et al

Library Thing - Alternative for Rainy Sunday
I am also thinking about heading over to Library Thing to update my collection. Note to self - must take back the barcode scanner Auckland City Library lent me.

I was disappointed with Library Thing when I joined after your recommendation. I put up my book of the moment ( The Ranger's Apprentice - John Flanagan) and went off to see the comments on it. Most of them were spam like, trying to sell me stuff tangentially or directly related... Can it be set to block these ... if so should be automatically on? If not ... someone needs to do this?

I've used LibraryThing for a while, in a desultory fashion and recently visited to update a few books.

Disappointed to discover it's difficult (advice to the contrary gratefully received) to integrate with the social networks de jour (Facebook/Twitter)

I've given consideration to migration to LivingSocial.com which does seem to have kept up with the Facebook/Twitter game.

I guess I have a different view of Library Thing. I wouldn't use its reviews - don't even use Amazon for that.

The only user reviews I regularly enjoy are those on public library sites - e.g. Auckland City user book lists.

What I do like about it includes:

1. Being able to catalog my/our personal collection, and be able to see other books in the same bunches. Note I didn't say tag - cos I am a bit lazy about tagging, and need to change that.

2. Widgets
I like the widgets they do have - i.e. the ordinary HTML versions which can be embedded on blogs etc.
Facebook is just pure crap at that kind of thing.

As for Twitter - not sure how that would work - would be interested in exploring/debating that?

3. The Public Library Integration
Like others I was enamoured by the potential of Library Thing to enhance a small public libraries OPAC.

To date, I think Nelson is the only New Zealand Library to do this? However, I would be more than grateful to be corrected on this.

Thanks for the comments - I might go over to NZ Libs and ask the rest of the band who is using Library Thing , and what they think of it ..
