LibraryThing Movie Night: Jurassic Park

Break out the popcorn—it’s time for another LibraryThing Movie Night!

So far, we’ve screened Never Let Me Go and Stardust, the latter to go along with our group read of the Neil Gaiman novel. But if the box office has taught us anything, it’s that there’s no time like the summer time for a good ol’ action/thriller flick.

Join us Wednesday, Aug. 8th at 9pm EDT to watch the 1993 film adaptation of Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park.


Synchronize your watches for Wednesday, Aug. 8th, at 9pm EDT (US). That’s when we’ll start the show. Jurassic Park is available to stream on Netflix in the US (along with other countries), or you can rent it on Amazon, Google, or iTunes, among other platforms.

You can see the trailer for the movie on YouTube.

Talk about it

Talking during the movie is highly encouraged! Join the discussion on the Talk thread during or after the movie.

We ask that you keep discussion spoiler-free until we’re all watching together. Yes, this one’s been out for a while, but if you’ve read the book or seen the movie already, don’t ruin any surprises!


Questions, comments, or suggestions for other movies you’d like to watch with LTers? Post ’em on Talk.

LibraryThing Models Needed: Show off your LT gear!

With LibraryThing’s 13th anniversary on the horizon (Aug. 29th!), it’s high time we updated our Store gallery. Currently, Store photos feature staff members (or our cute kids), and we’d like to change that—our store should reflect our membership.

We’d like you to send us photos of yourself, (or your family, your pets) sporting your favorite LibraryThing (or TinyCat) gear. A few highlights will be featured on our main store pages, and the rest will go into a gallery for LT members to see.

Email your photos to, or post them in your member gallery, and point us to them.

Be sure to send in your photos by Monday, Aug. 20th, so we can compile them in time for our anniversary.

Win a free shirt

Don’t have a LibraryThing or TinyCat shirt, or need an update? We’re giving away 20 t-shirts (winners’ choice) at random. Fill out this form to enter the drawing. Winners will be picked and notified on Wednesday, Aug. 8th, 5pm EDT, so be sure to enter before then.

Update 08/06: We’ve had so many entries into the drawing, we’re upping the number of shirts we’re giving away to 40 instead of 10!
