Today's topic: Recommendations. Do you use LT's recommendations feature? Have you found any good books by using it? Do you use the anti-recommendations, or the "special sauce" recommendations? How do you find out about books you want to read?
Yes, I look at the recommendations. Once in awhile I find something to add to my wish list. I have found the anti-recommendations to be less useful simply because I have eclectic tastes. I use a variety of methods to find out about books I want to read. Since I'm a librarian, I often look at publishers catalogs that I receive or reviews that I locate in publications. I also find things in the LibraryThing early reviewers program and its associated group (which usually contains links to the reviews as they are published). I have several book blogs in my feeds, and I am usually adding a few from those as well. I have more things in my wish list than I can possibly get around to reading in the near future, and it just keeps growing!
