Playing with LibraryThing!

You can now find me and quite a lot of my books on LibraryThing. In an amazingly short space of time I have been able to add most of my weaving books and some spinning, general textiles, craft etc. There are still a few embroidery and surface design books lurking in the darker corners of the loom room. Then there is the rest of the house… but that is never going to happen. I was hoping to put a LibraryThing widget in the sidebar, but it is one of those apps that WordPress doesn’t support (yet?), so here is a little screenshot to be going on with.

Compared with some, my collection is quite modest — but since every one of these books is new (to me) since I started weaving in 2004, it still represents an acquisition rate of more than one a month. And of course LibraryThing is now busy telling me what books all the other weavers have and which ones they recommend…

    Hi Cally,
    Who is the author of the ‘Colour’? That’s a new one to me…. Also The Cutting Edge?

    Cheers,
    Laura (couldn’t access LibraryThing, maybe because I’m not a member?)

      Oh I am sorry you can’t get in — not sure why that should be as I can see them even when I am logged out. But I am a complete novice at this so my links may be all wrong…

      Anyway, “Colour” is a reading book (as opposed to a practical book; subtitled “Travels through the Paintbox”) by Victoria Finlay. “The Cutting Edge” is edited by Catriona Baird — it was produced by National Museums Scotland to accompany an exhibition of contemporary craft and appears on their website here.
