We’re pleased to announce the addition of six new Amazon sites to LibraryThing’s cataloging sources. They are:
- Amazon.in (India)
- Amazon.it (Italy)
- Amazon.com.br (Brazil)
- Amazon.es (Spain)
- Amazon.com.mx (Mexico)
- Amazon.cn (China)
This is big news, because although we’ve had academic library sources for these countries and languages, Amazon has far more books for most readers, and is always faster.
Initially the sources are available for books only. Once we see everything going smoothly, we’ll add “music” and “movies” sources for them too.
To use them, go to Add Books, look under “Search where?” on the left-hand side of the page, and click “Add from 1077 sources.”
If you run into any issues, or have other feedback or questions, post them on Talk.
LibraryThing in Not-English?
Many members don’t know, but LibraryThing is available in more than a dozen languages, including ones for the new sources:
- Brazilian Portuguese (br.LibraryThing.com)
- European Portuguese (pt.LibraryThing.com)
- Italian (LibraryThing.it)
- Spanish (LibraryThing.es)
- Hindi (hin.LibraryThing.com), still largely untranslated
