I have more unwholesome children's stories than any of you.

I guess I win the sightseeing award
(link: http://www.librarything.com/tag/sightseeing ) and public transport
(link: http://www.librarything.com/tag/public+transport ) , also, but not travel (link: http://www.librarything.com/tag/travel ).

Is there a quick and easy way to figure this out?

Doing things the hard way (randomly investigating my tags) I find I lead the pack far and away with

Not surprisingly, considering the library I have been cataloging is half-owned by the ArchDruid Emeritus.

Well, looking at my top two tags by number, I find that I lead the pack with COSTUME, with more than twice the number of books of the next member (a friend of mine, btw), but the second tag (HISTORY) lags well behind the leaders.

The first is no big surprise :-)

I'm second-highest on home (1415), and the only holder of Elizabethan (II) literature (623) (naturally, the logically conclusion that very few Thingambrians have literature published during the reign of Queen Elizabeth the Second) and pre-Elizabethan (II) literature (247) (oddly enough only inclusive to the start of the 20th century*). I'm top on Steve Jackson Games (196), GURPS 3rd Edition (168) (the detailed tagging pattern with one of the largest collection of GURPS in LibraryThing) and--skipping a few more that only I have (I seem to be tagging anthologies in a way no one else is--this is the first time I've been bothered by the fact you can't nest em-dashs, btw)--anthologies of science fiction (70) and core rulebook (61).

I'm sixth on 21st century literature, (119 versus the top of 148) which wouldn't be interesting except for the fact that I don't read much modern literature.

Edit: Talking about this, I think it goes from the end of Victorian literature (22 January 1901) to the start of Elizabethan (II) literature (6 February 1952).

#3: I wish there were. It would look nice on our Profiles. Anyway, the only way I could figure it out is to manually check tags that I suspected are uniquely mine.

Editat: juny 11, 2010, 8:33pm

Woo hoo! Number 1 in mayhem. Also, number two in unexplained and in historical atlases. Number Six in end of the world

Editat: juny 11, 2010, 8:47pm

I'm #1 for mixed bag, which at least other people do use. I'm the only one, as far as I can tell, using horse swapping and too sad to re-read.

juny 11, 2010, 9:10pm

I'm number one in non-fiction narrative tags. Surprising since my LT library is quite small yet.


juny 11, 2010, 9:29pm

I am the only one using church ladies http://www.librarything.com/tag/church+ladies

juny 11, 2010, 9:55pm

>9 Body_Count:

to the Count:
I was surprised that fewer people use eotwawki (end of the world as we know it) to describe the post-apocalyse books.

I always thought that was an official designation.

juny 11, 2010, 10:02pm

>13 2wonderY: I never knew that! As soon as I catalog my copy of Alas, Babylon I'll be stealing that.

juny 11, 2010, 10:18pm

13> I always heard it as teotwawki (with *T*he in front) and indeed there are 12 LT members who use that tag.

juny 12, 2010, 12:30am

I looked further into my tag rankings, and my tags in first place also include Michelin, almanac, Barbie, directory, and Detroit. I collect Michelin travel guides and almanacs; my wife collects Barbie books (as well as dolls); we both lived almost two decades in Detroit.

juny 12, 2010, 1:09am

Perhaps I'm just contrary, but I tag the end of the world as we know it with It's Not the End of the World.

juny 12, 2010, 8:26am

Apparently I am the only one with angst! angst! angst!

I'm always wanting to add more "fun" tags (most of mine are boring genre labels and such) -- maybe I will adopt some from this thread!

juny 12, 2010, 8:59am

There seems to be a tension between using common tags to unite the books from all collections and the use of odd and unique tags. It's a fun exploration of other peoples takes and witticisms. I like to trawl (sp?) other peoples tags occasionally to adopt the best for my own pleasure.

I will switch to teotwawki. It's easier to pronounce anyway.

>17 macsbrains:> Exactly!! That's why "awki" is there. If it were truly the end, there would be nothing to write home about.

juny 12, 2010, 9:43am

>12 PhaedraB:> Rats! "church ladies" would be a perfect tag for Crowns: Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats but I gave it away.

>18 foggidawn:,13,etc.> I guess LibT could combine the tags teotwawki and eotwawki.

juny 18, 2010, 11:33am

Aside from those unique tags I use, like West (indicating the book is at my library), I use the tag "Exceptional Children" more than anyone else. It's the term used in our special education course in the education department at my university.

set. 24, 2010, 10:31am

I'm number one in "Traction". I suppose I could add "Public Transit" to those books, but I would be behind vpfluke with that one.

{Is it a fluke that s/he became a vice president?}

set. 24, 2010, 10:59am

Among the specialty tags, I have 50 books tagged @ DA (for the LoC classification), which is more than twice the #2 user of that tag. I'm 4 to 1 over the next best user for @ 746, a Dewey tag.

Otherwise, I'm nearly tied for top usage (though admittedly of only two users) for Tudor and Elizabethan.

set. 24, 2010, 11:11am

I seem to be leading on Lewis Carroll. But I only have 115 books tagged that way, not 260 like the tag page claims.

set. 24, 2010, 3:11pm


Although, I might "own" public transit (which includes public transport), the biggest user of transit has only 60 titles. Other tags include mass transit, urban mass transit, public transportation system, transit systems, metro systems, et al. I haven't proposed combining any of these other tags, as I am not sure that they would pass muster with those who vote for them. Concerns about plural vs. singular have loomed larger, plus people will think of other meanings (like transit).

My LT name is based on my AOL email address, and is really my wife's name; my real name is overly common, and so it was easier using hers when all the other obvious email variants were taken for my own name (R Campbell).

set. 24, 2010, 4:16pm

I seem to be the only one using @will-never-read (closely allied to "English Men of Letters ", an old series I was gifted with and which few other people have). I can't claim to be one of the top users of Caper, but I think it's sadly underutilized.

It looks like several people have joined me in using "snowed in", but I'm still tops for Vices, and the only person using Best Cover (for when I have multiple copies of a work with different covers).

Editat: feb. 5, 2011, 8:53pm

I think I had meant to post to this thread a long time ago, but it seems I never got to it. Anyway, here are a few. I'm only counting tagging on books in my "your library" collection.

labor 217
Palladium Books 155
unions 112
baritone 32
anti-war 19
dalits 12

feb. 5, 2011, 7:54pm

I'm the only person using tag "color word". It's just a little game I play with my collection--titles which contain the a color name or the word "color" itself get the tag.

Editat: feb. 5, 2011, 9:04pm

Huh. There are some sf-nal tags (e.g., Nebula nominee (222)) and jokey tags that I lead in; but I'm surprised to see that I'm the top user (56) of the Angry Young Men tag. Iroquois (41), too.

feb. 7, 2011, 11:14am

That's funny - I actually did that with my music - made a playlist with all the songs with colors in their titles. My friends found that one odd.

feb. 7, 2011, 11:21am

>30 timepiece:

Wow! I'm amazed that someone else did this.

feb. 7, 2011, 11:46am

In music, it gets you a wonderfully eclectic playlist (well, presuming you starts with a reasonable array of genres). Admittedly, I left all all the ones where the color words were not used for actual colors (i.e., blues songs with "Blues" in the title). Still, Back in Black, Fields of Gold, Pretty in Pink, Little Red Corvette ....

feb. 7, 2011, 2:00pm

Pink Cadillac? Blue on Black?

feb. 7, 2011, 5:12pm

I have most usage of 'Free fiction' and 'Fiction magazines'. In science fiction, print fiction magazines are still important to the genre while there is plenty of free (and legal) good short fiction on the Internet in a new generation of online magazines.

feb. 7, 2011, 8:29pm

>33 Suncat:: Suncat

Yes, I have both of those, too. Green River, White Rabbit, Purple Haze ... the playlist has 109 songs on it at the moment. It's labeled "Rainbow mix". And yes, She's a Rainbow is on it too.

And then there's the meta-mix with songs about music (Let the Music Play, Dance to the Music, Rhythm of the Night...). I have almost as much fun with music tagging as I do with book tagging.

Hah, looking at my tags by number I quickly realised my highest "have more" tags (and only tags) were the "read in (years)" that I used when I first catalogued my collection. They correspond to childhood, 2 years overseas, intermediate/secondary school, 5 years at Uni and first fives years working, so it was relatively easy to work out when I first read the books I own.
https://www.librarything.com/tag/read+1986-1992 is the largest; oh for the time I had to read back then, before work and internet.
After I joined librarything they're tagged by single year, and suddenly I'm not the only one and am well outnumbered https://www.librarything.com/tag/read+in+2005

Looking further to find tags that are meaningful to others I'm suprised to find
https://www.librarything.com/tag/holiday+story wins. I was using it in apposition to school story - British kids have adventures while on holiday. Other users seems to be more focused on specific holidays - there's lots of Christmas in the titles, Valentines etc.

Right behind that is https://www.librarything.com/tag/lost+colony - scifi where a planet is colonised from Earth, then loses contact with us. Sometimes they're recontacted after a period of developing on their own, sometimes not. Lots of McCaffrey, Bujold, Zimmer Bradley, and other taggers seem to be using it the same way, along with a subset of books about Roanoke.

The one I was expecting is https://www.librarything.com/tag/uber , a pre rideshare word from Xena fandom for fanfiction AUs that placed the characters in other times and places - since the serial numbers were essentially already filed off they were easy to publish and a lot were - there was a period in the early 2000s were a whole lot of published lesbian romances featured a tall dangerous brunette and shorter friendly blonde.

futuristic fantasy (it happens in the future but has magic or otherwise follows fantasy codes more than scifi ones, includes but isn't limited to sword&planet) 90

CRPG (for computer role-playing game) 83

rogues (for me protagonists or major characters that would usually be classified as RPG thieves or assorted other underworld types, usually fantasy or scifi, major use by others seems to be the typical no-good Romance male protagonist) 73

religion (fiction) (fiction featuring real-world or imaginary religions and characters involved in them in some detail and/or as a prominent part of the narrative) 54

Interesting that you use "SF Mystery" rather than use two tags and then tagmash them.

maig 21, 2019, 8:15am

I am surprised I am the only one who uses "spin-offery" as a tag. Namely for works which are spin-offs are more well-known series such as Bernice Summerfield (or Faction Paradox) and Doctor Who. It does have some currency on the blogosphere and has even been used in published books such as Storyworlds Across Media and Revisiting Imaginary Worlds so I am a bit surprised I am the sole user of it here.

maig 21, 2019, 1:14pm

>42 andyl: As opposed to "spin-off" I'm guessing?

maig 23, 2019, 4:08am

>43 lorannen:

No - I don't use "spin-off".

Spin-offery I think is a collective noun, but I use it as a tag because I like the look and sound of it. I guess it is so unusual that people have not proposed the tag combination yet.
