- Über meine Bibliothek
- My library contains books I own (both read and unread) as well as books I do not own but am sure I have read. The physically unowned books are in My Library, on the theory that if they have passed over my eyes and into my head, I "own" them on some level. This makes me feel good - that I have ownership of the ideas, even if I do not have a physical copy. I have not listed my professional books. There are also many books I have not entered, even though I have read them, because I don't remember them very well. My Wishlist is the only collection not included in My Library. I would use Wishlist more if I could exclude it from Collections, but "so it goes," to quote one of my favorite authors.
P.S. Please feel free to let me know if I have misspelled an author or title, or in some way incorrectly combined or separated my books on the main work pages. Thanks.
- Über mich
- The profile photo is our dear Puss. We just lost Puss last week, so we only have 3 cats with us now - Boots (Puss's sister), Nikki and Koro-chan: all rescues from the great outdoors.
I am a scientist looking to enrich her life through reading new and interesting books. When I was little, I wanted to be either an astronaut or a librarian -- can't remember which came first. Fear of flying (among other things) kept me from being an astronaut. LibraryThing is wonderful for the mildly compulsive, cataloging aspect of my nature. I joined LibraryThing when I purchased a Kindle. I wanted a way to view my library as a single unit, not hard copy vs. electronic. I also like seeing the covers. I purchase almost 100% electronic now as a defense against my "significant other" who is rapidly filling all the horizontal spaces and closets with hardcopy books. There is barely room for the 2 of us (and 3 cats) in a 4-bedroom house!
