LibraryThing not ready for double digits

LibraryThing’s ten-year anniversary is officially postponed… for two weeks.

As some of you know, LibraryThing would be turning ten years old today. But summer vacations, family visits, and work stuff have have put us behind.

So, we’re moving the clock. (Yes, we can do that. We can do anything.) So today is NOT our tenth birthday party. Our ten-year celebration will be on Monday, September 14th.

Bring your party hat.
