librarything.comObviously this weekend is all about the books...

In the comments for yesterday's post, Tom mentioned librarything.com, a site that I'd never actually heard of before, but I figured I should actually go and check it out, see what was what...

Unfortunately I decided to check it out late last night... around midnight, when I really should have been shutting the computer down and going to bed...

Because I liked Library Thing very much and started to catalogue all the 100 books that were in the montage... and once I get involved in a project, well, I get very involved... and I didn't end up getting to bed until about 2am...

And then I was finishing up and fiddling around for another hour or so at least again this morning... I just have to say that I'm glad I was only putting in the 100 "blog books"... because if I had been systematically going through and adding all of my books... well... I would most certainly still be banging away at it... and probably for several days... but thankfully I'm not doing that... since I think it wouldn't be long before the little men in white coats would come along and escort me off to a rubber room.

Not that the site is difficult to use (although the ability to add more than one book at a time, especially in a series like Anita Blake or Harry Potter would probably be useful)... actually it couldn't be easier (especially the signup process... one username, one password and you're away)... it's just that I'm sometimes obsessively anal retentive about detail, so I had to go through and make sure that each and every one of the covers showed up, and showed up as the cover for the book I have... which probably took the longest while...

But I would definitely recommend the site if you want to keep a record of your books... just don't blame me if you end up slightly insane from trying to get all the details just so...
