Tuesday Thingers: Recently Added

This week's question:
LibraryThing's Recently Added feature: do you look at it? Do you use it for ideas? Is there something listed there now that looks interesting to you? What have you added to your LT library recently?

"Recently Added" is one of my favorite LibraryThing features. I'm an inherently curious person, so I love seeing what folks are adding to their libraries. I'm often amazed by how similar my tastes are to that of my friends on LibraryThing. For instance, Traci just added The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott, which I downloaded as an audiobook yesterday.

Some of the books I've added recently: Kenny & the Dragon by Tony DiTerlizzi, With Endless Sight by Allison Pittman, Tomato Girl by Jayne Pupek, The Safety of Secrets by Delaune Michel, and Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson.

What's new in your library this week?

  3. With so many libraries on LT, how do you know that folks will be entering things that interest you? Do you just go by the names of the books or something?

  4. I've added *The Safety of Secrets* this week too; are you doing the interview with Book Club Girl?

  7. Just read "Isolation" by Travis Thrasher. Love this author. Just found out about him. Obvious Stephen King disciple with his writing style, but he writes non-religious non-"preachy" Christian world-view themed books. This one is a butt-cheeks gripping tongue-biting page turning thriller. Really good.

  8. No libraries here which sucks. Ah.

    Sorry for taking up space, but I just emailed you. You probably use google for your email and it has a tendency to mark me as spam, thus why I feel the need to warn you via comment :)
