BookExpo America, day 1

BookExpo America is turning out great. I did a talk, “What is LibraryThing and Why Should You Care?” (the program had some other title). It was refreshing to look at LibraryThing from a book-industry and publisher perspective again—most of my talks are aimed at libraries these days.

The talk was well attended, but not exactly crowded. I blame this on Clay Shirky (author of Here Comes Everybody), scheduled down the hall from me in the same time slot. Even I wanted to sneak out of my talk and go see his. Fortunately, Abby and I caught up with Clay afterwards, and we ended up going to dinner together. What a great dinner that was!

Tonight, we’re having a LibraryThing in LA meet-up. Come join us for a beer at the Library Bar at 7pm. It’s downtown, at 630 West 6th St (directions here).

LibraryThing at BEA

We’re headed to LA in the morning, to attend BookExpo America. There’s a longer post on the main LT blog, but I wanted to quickly mention it some things too.

We’re booth-less (and fancy-free), but we’ll be walking around wearing our LibraryThing t-shirts. So if anyone wants to accost us, please do! If you’d prefer setting up a meeting, just drop us an email ( or

Tim’s giving a talk—4pm on Thursday. Location unknown (check your program?)

And last, but certainly not least, we’re having a meet-up while we’re in town. Friday, 7pm at the Library Bar. Come have a beer with us!
