WHAT IS LIBRARYTHING?
LibraryThing.com is a social cataloging and social networking site for book lovers. Library members track what they're reading, get recommendations and relate to other book lovers.
LibraryThing Local is a sub-site devoted to bookstores, libraries and book events. Almost all the information there, and in Local Book Search, was entered by LibraryThing members.
Stay tuned, we're planning some great new features for version 2.0.
New venues and events can be added via LibraryThing.com Local.
✔ Minor fix to correct order of initial tab display.
Ratings and Reviews
How can venues add their events?
This app is a great concept but only one bookstore's events show up on the app when I know that other nearby libraries and bookstores have events, too. How is the event calendar populated? Also, when will LibraryThing create an app for accessing our accounts? I adore LibraryThing and would love to refer to it on the go.
But an index of book-lover events really isn't much of an index if there are only three venues listed in all of New York City.
