If you’ve wondered about joining Librarything, but were put off by their 200 free book limit and balked at the onetime $25 lifetime member fee and you’d missed earlier opportunities to get a lifetime membership for free [exactly like me, how coincidental], there is now a opportunity to get a lifetime membership for free.
Join Tinycat for a 30 day free trial:
Use your librarything account when signing up and voila, you’ll get a free lifetime membership at Librarything. I can’t tell you much about tinycat except that it appears to be some sort of electronic library lending thingy. It is only a 30 day trial and there was no billing setup for me and when I looked, I had the $0 activity because I chose the Personal Library when signing up.
The plus side to having a lifetime membership at Librarything is that you can import your old Leafmarks tsv file, they have a specific option for that under their import section.
I realize that this is yet ONE MORE thing to have to deal with, especially with booklikes going all 522 for over 12hrs now. But if you need a book database, this is an option to explore. YouKneek is active there and I’m starting to crosspost my reviews there as well. No posts or comments, hence I’m still going to be using WP for all my social’y needs, but if book stats are important to you, LT has them in spades.
Finally, I don’t know how long this will last, so get it while you can.
(Thanks to Grim and YouKneeK for pointing this out before Booklikes hit the skids last evening)
