Tuesday Thinger: Ready, Set, Start Your Collections!

Welcome to another week of Tuesday Thingers! We always love to hear from regular participants as well as new people.

I'm on VACATION, so this will be a quick one! Sadly, I was going to do a quick post on adding friends in LT, which many of us have trouble with, myself included, but the help page was missing, and when I tried to add friends from my email, I received an error message, so instead, I'm passing along some wonderful news from the Library Thing Blog!

You can now add books to different collections and then view just those collections! Some of the pre-designed collections include: Wishlist, Currently Reading, To Read, Read But Unowned, and Favorites. Then of course you can add your own collections too!

To begin classifying your books, go to your book shelf and you will see a little brown briefcase/box type icon on the right hand side. Simply click that and choose one of the collections!

Questions: Have you explored the new Collections feature? Do you plan to use the new Collections? Are you going to add any special collections? If so, what are they?

My Answer: I have just started looking at the new Collections feature, but I LOVE the idea and do plan to use it when I've got the time to sit down and classify my books. I will probably start with favorites.

I think I will probably add a collection for good gift-ish books. Sometimes I'm looking for a great gift/hostess book, and just don't know what to get - if I had some general books in a collection, it would be easier.

Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!

I hope you're having fun. I love the concept of the new collections, but doubt I'll use them, because there just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day anymore.

I just wanted to say: 'It's about time!' with the LT collections. It was the nost aggravating thing that I couldn't organize my books into different categories (as in Goodreads for example) so I'm happy they finaly did it, now I just have to spend forever to catalogue my books.
