In week four I explored Library THing. Based on the books I logged it suggested I might like to read, “Under the banner of Heaven.” I tried buying it from Dymocks but it was unavailable. In despiration I looked it up in my local libraries on line catalogue. Yes it was available but not from my local branch. Nevertheless I was able to request it. I put in my preferred dates and then dropped in at the library. There it was, waiting on a special section of the shelves, filed under my surname. I guess this is not really Library 2.0 as it was still a one way transaction. I didn’t provide any feedback for other library patrons. I was however very impressed with what I could acheive form home on a Saturday night.
I would have given the book five stars by the way.
It would be great if my library was able to suggest books I might enjoy based on my previous borrowings.
