Tuesday Thingers: Discussion Groups from Library Thing

Do you belong to any (besides Early Reviewers)? Approximately how many? Are there any in particular that you participate in more avidly? How often do you check?

I belong to quite a few but I find most are not as active as ER. I especially like the Historical Fiction, Science Fiction Fans, and Kindley groups, and I find the Bookcases group to "interesting". There is never a shortage of obscure, creative bookcase pictures to look at. The funniest group by far is the Librarians who LibraryThing. They have three threads in particular that I find to be so funny. Here are the links for your enjoyment:

Strange Bookmarks
Creepy Requests from Patrons

Lol I don't belong to the Librarians group, but I keep an eye on it. Specifically for those threads you mentioned!! They really are hilarious :)

Also, saw your comment on somebody else's blog re starred threads... If you go to the talk page (http://www.librarything.com/talk) and click: your groups, it automatically lists all the topics in the groups you belong to, with the threads and tells you how many are unread.

I have got to get all the Library Thingers members in my Google Reader and soon! :) That way, I can stop by when there is a new post.
