Final tally

I have the complete list entered, except for 2 books. One I know I have somewhere in the apartment. The other is an old Alice in Wonderland paperback that I need to research. Grand total is 781 books in my possession. I thought it would be more. I'll be posting a list shortly. I have a number of duplicates. On some of those, that's fine. I have a hardcover and softcover of a couple of titles that I want to keep. But I also have a couple of copies of Watership Down for instance. Some of the duplicates are already up on As are the Anne Rice books. Never read 'em. Don't intend to. They were gifted to me. One is autographed, so I need to see how much that increases the value.

For those that question my dorkiness, I submit to you that indeed I am a dork. Spending two weeks entering all your books into a database for tracking is not everyone's idea of fun. For some reason I got into it. It got me thinking about re-reading some of them. It sates the anal retentive list-maker inside. Plus, now I can keep track of who borrows my books and not have to yell out at everyone for the sins of the few.


  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
