Have you ever tried to keep track of all the web pages that interest you? Until a few years ago, you were mostly restricted to putting the pages in your browser's bookmarks section. Then came along Delicious (formerly del.icio.us), which allowed you to organize and share your bookmarks with others. Now, the big thing is Pinterest. Pinterest is more of a social media site for sharing anything and everything you find on the internet! You create virtual bulletin boards where you "pin" items that you've found.
Many young women use it for planning weddings, or for picking out wardrobe items that they'd like to have at some future time. There are boards for awesome room furnishings such as bookshelves, craft projects, organizing, etc. To take a look at what libraries are doing with Pinterest, check out the Missoula Public Library's offerings.
So, not to be left behind, I've set up a Pinterest account in which I'm posting recently published books that I've read and found to be good for book discussion groups, also, I pinning select links that appear in posts on this blog. I'll be adding to the two boards a little at a time, and perhaps starting up other boards related to books, or films, or the Nesmith Library itself. Suggestions are welcomed!
