Today’s question, from Wendi’s Book Corner: Do you have a specialized blog where you only review a certain genre or type of book? If so, what is your favorite thing about that type of book? If not, what is/are your favorite genre(s)? What makes that genre(s) a favorite? I don’t have a particular favorite genre to read, so I don’t… Read more
Wow, I haven’t had a chance to do one of these in ages! (And if I don’t type fast, I still won’t get it in on Tuesday.) From Wendi’s Book Corner, here’s this week’s Tuesday Thinger question: Today’s question: How do you get your books for reviewing? Do you track them somehow (excel, database, etc), or just put them in… Read more
Today’s question, from Wendi’s Book Corner: Prior to today, were you aware of Open Shelves Classification? Have you helped to classify any books yet? Is this something you are interested in?

I haven’t done one of these in while! Today’s Tuesday Thingers question comes from Wendi’s Book Corner: Have you ever used the Swap This Book function which can be found on the main page of any book?

Tuesday Thingers – at long last!
I have been really bad about posting on this the last month or so. Real life – who needs it? I’ve been all over the place (literally), but I’m trying hard to get caught up.

Today’s question: Today’s question: LT Things- t-shirts, bags,cue cats- are you into the “stuff”? Do you use a cuecat to enter your books, or do you enter them manually?

New to my Library
I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, but I promise not to drown you in the deluge of new books this fall has brought to my door. It mainly came to mind because, as so often happens, when it rains, it pours. I have had a number of audiobooks on hold at the library and since they… Read more
