Milestones and Burgers

LibraryThing hit 4 million books this week—that’s over a million in less than two months, and yesterday 42,000 more. We also topped 100,000 user contributed covers and 1 million unique books. We’re growing like crazy over here. And thanks to the new servers, the Zeitgeist is even updating regularly!

To celebrate (ok, we were planning it anyway) we’re having the first annual LibraryThing barbecue/picnic here in Portland, ME. You all are cordially invited – plan your vacations accordingly (Portland does have an airport, you can fly in just for the occasion).

We’ll have burgers and other things to grill (vegetarian stuff too, since Abby-the-vegetarian has a say) and potato salad and chips and whatever else you’re supposed to have at a barbecue. And you can meet me, and Tim, and our families – that right there should be incentive enough. Bring your babies and dogs, and we’ll see you in August!

Saturday August 5th, around 5pm
28 Atlantic Street, Portland Maine

You can RSVP (email Abby) or just stop by! Email for directions or questions or food requests.
