I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not big into the social books/cataloging scene, but I do have mad love for the community that it supports. I also have mad love for LibraryThing. Yes, founder Tim Spalding is my neighbor (see?). Let’s put that aside because it really doesn’t mean anything. Here’s why I dig Tim and the LibraryThing team: they are real, honest, and caring people. They don’t hide their feelings, they share, and they look out for the community that helped get them where they are today.
I say go Team LibraryThing. May Goodreads becoming part of Team Amazon mean good things for you, the LibraryThing community, and your families. Why? Because good, honest, people (and businesses) should succeed.
