And this is the post where I admit my laziness to the world...
Today's question is about tags- do you tag? How do you tag? How do you feel about tagging- do you think it would be better to have standardized tags, like libraries have standardized subject headings, or do you like the individualized nature of tagging? What are your top 5 tags and what do they say about your collection or your reading habits?
I BARELY tag. I look at other member's libraries, with all their beautiful, informative tags, and think, "Gee, why don't I do that?" Well, dear reader, here's the answer - I am a lazy, lazy girl. I was not really aware of tags on the day that I entered my initial 900+ books into the library in an exhausting day long marathon, and I'm just too dang lazy to go back and start again. I have a few token categories - nonfiction, sci-fi/fantasy, read, ARC - and I occasionally remember to add something when I add a new book, but I am afraid this is a feature of LT that I will never really put to good use. Seriously, shouldn't I be reading a book instead anyway?? =)
