Tuesday Thingers...Least Popular Book

Well Tuesday has come and gone but here's my take on the least popular book(s) in my Librarything library. First order of business is Tuesday Thingers is hosted by Marie at The Boston Bibliophile and second here is this week's question: Do you have any unique books in your library- books only you have on LT? How many? Did you find cataloging information on your unique books, or did you hand-enter them? Do they fall into a particular category or categories, or are they a mix of different things? Have you ever looked at the "You and none other" feature on your statistics page, which shows books owned by only you and one other user? Ever made an LT friend by seeing what you share with only one other user?

Well I don't have any books unique to my library but I have six books in my library that I share with one other LTer and each book is shared with a different LTer. 2 books are related to September 11th, 3 are fiction and, most likely, catalogued incorrectly after looking at what they are, and the last one is a non-fiction account of crossing Antarctica in 1999.

You and None Other was one of the features that caught my eye when I first joined LT. I do check it periodically just to see if the books have changed with the all cataloguing we LTers do and they haven't.

I haven't contacted the other LTers nor have I checked out what else they have in their libraries. Maybe I should go take a peek. You never know what you might come across.

I think it's kind of a fun feature, just seeing what weird obscure things I have :-)

I like looking at my more obscure books - they've changed a lot since I joined, probably because many other people have joined and entered books since then.
