Why did you choose to open and maintain an LT account? Do you/did you use other online cataloging/social networking sites, like GoodReads or Shelfari? Do you use more than one? Are they different or do they serve different purposes?
I chose LT because a good friend of mine recommended it to me. Before her I never knew it existed but it was something that she talked about often. To shut her up I signed up for a free account not thinking that I would like it. Soon I was cataloging books and fast approaching the 200 book limit on the free account. Still unsure of the sight I signed up for 1 year. Thinking that I would abandon the site long before then. Little did I know just how addicting LT was.
Before LT I had tried bookcrossing but never really got into it. Which is part of why I didn’t think that I would like LT. I was wrong about LT. I like LT. I see no reason to use any other similar sites.
