Library Thing is a fancy reading log with connections. Maybe students would enjoy keeping a reading log on the computer where they can post their books, write reviews, read reviews, and receive recommendations for other books. Library Thing definitely outdates the pen and paper reading logs. I would like to try having students post their books and reviews on a regular basis throughout the year and see if they are more motivated to read and review their books using this site. I could give them due dates for their postings and a completion grade when their lists and reviews are posted on time. I will think about how else to use this site . . . right after I read that great book that was recommended on my library thing page. . . .
