Literary Ladies at LibraryThing

Over at the LT Blog, Abby notes some important additions to the growing community of Literary Luminaries: in the last month, users have catalogued the libraries of Isabella Stewart Gardner, Susan B. Anthony, Marie Antoinette, and Sylvia Plath. Browse away!

I had some comments on ISG's library back when I finished entering it; I also worked on some of the cataloguing for Anthony's collection, which seemed to be much more practically-based than the others (lots of government reports, meeting proceedings and so forth), but was just as much fun to work on.

Yet another powerful statement about the collaborative power of LT and its potential for bringing the bibliosphere to life.
