Second Life? (Sunday social at Bookmooch)

Someone finally roped me in to Second Life.

Tomorrow (Sunday) LibraryThing members are invited to crash the weekly get-together put on by Bookmooch.* It’s at 2pm Eastern, 11am Pacfic, at the Bookmooch/Magnatune area on Second Life. Here’s a link to go there. If I can figure out how, I’ll give you a LibraryThing t-shirt I made.

I’ll be interested to see who turns up. I’m not sure what I think of Second Life yet. It seems empty, and I don’t find the chats very interesting. But I like building, and I have this idea that LibraryThing should integrate so that members have random books from their LibraryThing libraries floating over their head. (Or maybe it’s books you share with someone floating around you?) But I’m not going to think about it seriously for a while. There’s too much else to do.

But, if you want to meet other Thingamabrarians—well, me anyway—and Bookmoochers, come check it out.

Update: I also made a Second Life group on LibraryThing.

Note: If you’re not a member of Second Life already, downloading and setting it up will take you 10-15 minutes. You need a fairly fast machine.

*John Buckman, the Bookmooch creator, okayed the idea.
