So the question this week is- how many books do you have cataloged in your LibraryThing account? How do you decide what to include- everything you have, everything you've read- and are there things you leave off?
So far I have only cataloged a few...96 to be exact. I probably have a thousand or so to go, it's going to take me a while. My husband has been really working on his, he has over 1400 cataloged! As you can see, we have ALOT of books in our house!
I had decided to only catalog the books that I actually have permanently in my library. Mostly for insurance purposes. If I ever needed a list for replacements, I would have it. However I will now be reviewing books that I won't necessarily want to keep, but will want the review to remain. So I'll be using a tag, like "not owned", for those that I have reviewed but passed on to others.
Just finished "The Aviary Gate" and will have the review up in a couple of days. "Songs for the Missing" by Stewart O'Nan is next, I'll start that today. I just received a review copy of "The Lace Reader" by Brunonia Barry in the mail today and I am bumping it to the top of my To Be Read list because it looked so good!
Thank you to Beth at Beth Fish Reads and to The Blogger Guide for helping me to customize my template and to Andrea at The Little Bookworm for improving my header!!

I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
