Sad, Really

Either I've got too many books (which my pal Deb would agree to, so she sends her giveaways to me :P), or I'm just too lazy, but I found myself looking to see if I owned certain books using my LibraryThing data base, despite the fact it's WAY incomplete, instead of searching around through four rooms of books and bookshelves.

I can't WAIT to get them all listed in here. It's going to be so wonderful! I've been organizing them again (before I got married and combined libraries they were alphabetized by author and then book title) somewhat by grouping all of the same author together. It's a slow process--as slow as logging them into my online catalog--but it will be so worth it. So far, just one bookcase and some stacks have been put on LibraryThing and organized. I can't wait until we build it's mate (8' tall, 5' wide brick and board bookcases, nothing fancy, just built for sturdiness and bigness) and I'll add books as I put them up. That will free space in other places and. . . it will be great! Okay, enough about books. For the nonce, anyway!

Oh, I don't think my Stephen Kings and Tom Clancys knocked THAT much out of whack... and you didn't let me put up all my comic books.

*rolls eyes at husband* Your monstrous nonfiction collection if what knocked my ABC order out of, well, order!

Bethany--mine is on order and should be here any day! The first time I ordered, it got lost in the mail, if you can believe it, but they shipped it out again this week. :D Glad to hear it really does work!

Oh my, you really are a woman after my own heart...alphabetized by author then title...

And it sounds like you're making progress towards a reorganization there. I want to see a picture of your monstrous bookcase though! It sounds pretty cool. And maybe I'll be inspired to actually finally do some reorganizing around here!

Not sad at all! I used to use LT to see what books I had too. But now I'm completely disorganized and don't have a clue what I have anymore.
