About meLibrary Thing is perfect for me. We recently moved to a smaller house and less space meant that half my books were relegated to life-in-a-box below stairs. Only the youngest, most handsome or pedigreed made the cut for limited first floor shelf space. Such shame and delight, and a few tears, to rescue my old friends in the cellar. I now sit in a cramped corner surrounded by happy-go-lucky, messy piles of well loved old books of all kinds, dating back to the year I graduated from high school, 1962 (any older ones I acquired later for one or another reason but always for love of the idea of the moment or of those we never grow out of ---).
About my libraryA life story can be told in my book titles and to a great degree by dates of their publication. It isn't hard to make out that these books moved to the country town of Foster, RI, in the 1970s back-to-the-land movement (we now call it "Green"). They taught their owners to build houses, raise farm animals, gardens, and herbs; to can, dry them for the doomsday to come; to make rugs and curtains; go back to college when kids went to school. The books know they're back for good; new shelves are on the way. They thank you Library Thing!
