I have a LT bumper sticker on my car and wore my LT T-shirt to the gym (a true sense of irony there) and to several library book sales.

At the most recent library sale, a middle-aged young mother told me she liked my T-shirt and were they available on the internet? I thought, how lucky is that? A LTer has spotted me. Are you a member of LibraryThing? I ask. What's that? she replies. I explain. She seems vaguely interested but clearly disappointed that my "LibraryThing: What's on Your Bookshelf" is not a general pro public libraries sort of T-shirt. She also noticed the my bumper sticker in the parking lot.

So, I suggest when the design is updated it reads " What's on Your Bookshelf." I think the dot com is important.

That is a BRILLIANT idea, Lois!

I agree with you Lois. I've told many people (mainly bookstore employees) and have distributed buttons but still have to explain about the .com even though it's rather common knowledge these days (the .com part, not LT...unfortunately!)

I agree.

I've been proudly sporting an LT button (thanks bleuroses! mua!) 'round town lately (with a bit of a superior look on my face. hehehe). When people ask, I just explain that LT is a fantastic online literary community.... yada yada yada... catalogue your books!..... discussions!.... reviews!.... recommendations!..... utterly addictive!....

Most people seem excited. All in all, we have it made here, guys, don't we?

avaland - I also have a bumper sticker on my car and wore my LT tee shirt to the gym the other day. Nobody talked to me about it though.

I did have a librarian at my town library remark on my shirt last Saturday. I asked if she had ever heard of LT and she said she had, but hadn't checked it out online yet. I told her she really, really should check it out :-)
