VMC: CurrerBell's "Read the 1940s"

About my libraryMy library's in no way fully catalogued, and I'm continuing to work on it from time to time. The books "Read" category is grossly understated because I've only included books that I've read since I actually began intensive seek-for-completeness LT cataloging, which was only a few years ago. My big ambition is to get everything boxed and indexed, then start moving out of boxes and back onto shelves. Wishful thinking???

And I've actually got close to a thousand books in my Kindle cloud, but much of that is freebies or very inexpensive public domain editions. OCD downloading, would you say? My Kindle collection only indexes books actually read.

Oh, yeah, and I've still got to catalog an entire bookcase or more of Brontëana!

Oh my, oh SIGH. I wrote this I don't know how many years ago and it's all still true.
