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?
I currently have 462 books catalogued at LibraryThing and I’ve been pretty thorough – my cookbooks, my reference books, even my erotica is all up there. I keep anything with a review in my library, even if I have gotten rid of it, although I have a “given away” tag.
This year, I stole an idea from author Joe Hill over at LT and I have started to tag my books as “Read in 2008”. It’s an easy way to keep track of what I’ve read so far this year and for this reason I’ve also added some library books to my account (tagged as KFL for Kent Free Library). Most of these are audiobooks, because I’m sad to say that my book budget does not extend to the high cost of books on CD. It inflates my library a little, but it better represents what I’ve actually read/am reading.
