About meAmateur librarian, professional software developer, fiber arts fanatic, devourer of cheese.
esanderson on Litsy.

About my libraryI own every book in my catalog. I find, having entered them, that I own 2100+ books that I have not read. I am slowly, but surely, working on reading them...in alphabetical order, no less.
Exceptions: Textbooks, reference material, instructional/self-help works.

EmScape's Rules for Reading
(last updated 8/11/11)
1. Go to www.librarything.com/catalog/Emscape. Filter for tag: 'unread.' Sort alphabetically by title. Read the first book on the list. Write a review, update tags.

2. If any Early Reviewer book exists, read that. If not, read any books loaned from friends or select from "1001 Books to Read Before You Die"

3. Repeat step 1.

4. Go to LibraryThing group: Go Review That Book. Check what has been prescribed for you. Read book, write review, update tags. Post link to review on game thread, assign book to TPAM. (The Person Above Me), if no GRTB assignment exists, see alternate options in Step 2.

5. Repeat from Step 1.

Exception A: If there is a book that has been loaned from a friend, read that in Step 2.

Exception B: Series Rules. If a prescribed book is part of a series that involves a lot of continuity and it is preferable to read the entire series at once, use alternate steps 5-7. When the series is finished, revert to regular rules.

Alternate Step 5: Repeat Step 1.

Alternate Step 6: Read the next book in the series.

Alternate Step 7: Repeat from Step 1.
