Tuesday Thingers: Cataloging

Today's question from The Boston Bibliophile is:
What cataloging sources do you use most? Any particular reason? Any idiosyncratic choices, or foreign sources, or sources you like better than others? Are you able to find most things through LT's almost 700 sources?


Um, call me clueless, but what am I supposed to answer here? It seems like everything I go to add to my library is easily found. So does that mean I use Amazon or Library Thing? As I don't read very many one-offs, foreign, or non-fiction, and what I usually read is based on a recommendation, my books are easily found.

I don't think I'm answering this question correctly. Go here to read others responses and see what I was supposed to say! LOL

It means, when you add books to your LibraryThing library, what search engine on LT do you use? there's Amazon, library of congress, and many others (according to the question- 700!)

I use Amazon and I've been able to find all of my books through there, but I know others use Amazon.uk, and LoC.

You have made my day! I didn't get it either and now I don't feel so stupid! Bless you for being so honest. It really helps the rest of us. :)
