Today's question: LT and RL (real life)- do you have friends in real life that you met through LibraryThing? Have you attended any LT meet-ups in your area? Would you be open to attending meet-ups or is LT strictly an online thing for you?
I've met some great LTers online, but no, I've never met up with any in real life. Library Thing is unique for me, because typically I'm not very social online. While I haven't been overly outgoing even on LT, I'm certainly more so that in any other online venue. As for whether I would consider getting together with other LTers in real life, I would say yes. Again, this is fairly unique to LT. Although, in general I would think it could be risky to meet people you 'meet' online, I feel like most of the people on Library Thing are like me - crazy, but crazy about the same thing: books. Which makes them my kind of crazy, and I would feel totally comfortable meeting them in real life. So, if there happened to be an LT (more specifically, the arc-loving bloggers) meet-up in the future in or around the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, I'd definitely be interested in attending.
