I fear it has happened much sooner than I ever thought it would: I have hit the 200 book margin for my free account through Librarything. In five days I will have been a member for one year and I need to decide whether or not I want to invest in a paid account. On one hand, it’s only a one time $25 for a lifetime membership; but I also don’t want to spend my hard earned money on something I’m not going to regularly use. My Librarything usage has been infrequent at best, but I think this is mostly the result of my lack of home internet connection. And when I do log on, generally there’s generally a good community atmosphere.
So for those of you who have splurged on a Librarything account, is it worth it? Would you recommend it? If not, why not? And if you use another service, I’d be equally interested to hear about your experience.
