Thing 11

Library Thing is a great social book recommendation site. It can be used not only for cataloging but reviewing literature as well. Users can see what other site members' current book interests are, and can make connections with others in groups. These groups are for specific genres or titles that have a large fan base. There were many groups for books aimed to children.

This tool can be used to catalog student's interest in different types of books, for later reflection to find books that will reach the students. Discussion on the site was what I found to be the most interesting, causing debate between different readers.
