About meI blame my mum for all this. She taught me to read very early and I never lost the love of being lost in a good book. Or chuckling my way through a car crash of one.

About my libraryIt's a wild creature which forces me to feed it every time I venture into bookshops and resists any attempts to reduce its mass.

Which is another way of saying I love buying books and seem incapable of getting rid of any.

Can you ID this work please:

I was wondering if it's related to the fan novelization:

Please reference the urls when you get back to me. It helps. :)

Hi, I ve noticed you have the book "How the Doctor changed my life" . I checked on Amazon and it's available at the absurd price of 270£. I was wondering if you could sell it to me. I could afford a more reasonable price. Thank you
Noticed you liked Fight Club, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed bunch of kids and a bit dark :) I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Is there a way to swipe wholesale though? I've been assuming you click on a book (let's say, The Wizard of OZ) then you go to the book's page, then you click on add, then it takes you to all the options from Amazon and you select the one that looks like yours. Or, for series (eg the Sharpe books) you go to the author, then look at his series links, go to the series you want, then click on each book you have, again adding them individually and selecting the best fit from the amazon list you are presented with. Is there a quicker way? I really hope there is.

As for ISBNS - that would require actually going and fetching books which ain't going to happen for a loooooooooong time. I can do a hell of a lot by memory, me - there has to be some advantage in having a memory like mine and this is it. (Well, and ability to pass exams). Mind you, the fact that I tend to buy whole series rather than leaving gaps makes that a little bit easier. There are certainly gaps in my A - C listings though, no doubt. I've definitely left out some books by Bear and Brin and Bova, for example, but I'm buggered if I can remember what I own and what I've read from the library. :shrug: I'll fill in the gaps eventually when I actually check the shelves. which means tidying up the playroom/library. :(
It's going to take me forever to actually list the damn things, though. And I'm not even doing it properly as it is - I'm selecting the actual edition I have of some books (sometimes I am changing the cover to match, eg so that my narnia books have the proper Pauline Baines covers) but I'm pretty certain I'm clicking on paperback versions of books I have in hardback because they are the first one that's coming up in the lists from amazon but I just haven't the time to do it properly. Also for loads of the chalet school books I have clicked on the fan club reissues - becuase they are top of the amazon list - when in fact I spent a good 20 years of my life scouring second hand shops for nice 50s Armada paperbacks and hardback first editions!But of course Amazon doesn't list those! I might make an effort with my Peake collection as I have multiple copies of every book - first editions, different paperback editions, different covers etc (my fabourite covers are actually the Alan Lee ones from the mid 80s penguin edition which is sacrilege I know, especially given the amount of money I have spent getting proper Peake cover versions - but there you go. I was obviously an Alan Lee fan from a very very early age!)

At some point I'll have to tackle all the Doctor Who stuff - I'm hoping to be able to nick it wholesale from you or Rob or maybe Lance Parkin.

Is there any way of linking this up with the book thingy we have on facebook?

Still think you're a fiend. In fact, moreso since I have spent more time than I had to spare already on this! It's brilliant though, isn't it?!
