About meSo many media designations were wrong that I am just ignoring the mess. Don't count on them being right.

About my libraryAbout collections:

I've added a Memories collection. These are books I remember reading before LT. So far mostly children's books. Those I read as a child and those I read to my children.

I'm keeping 30 books in Currently Reading. This includes books I recently read and the books earmarked to read next (=Reading Now). It also includes a few books that I am working on very slowly. When a new book is added to the collection the one with the earliest read date is removed. That means that about the past two-three weeks is included.

MJ is everything I feel connected to - either owned or read. Steven is books he owns, most of which are not included in MJ. Jerry is his books - suspense, mostly, that I don't read. Books need to be in at least one of these, but there is some overlap.

Owned fiction is for the benefit of those borrowing from the library. It pulls things that are in different places together. (And includes some marginal stuff that we keep with fiction.)

'My books' is things on our bookshelves that I don't exclude as being only of interest to my menfolk. If it's in MJ, it's supposed to also be in 'My Books' or 'Read but unowned'. There is one exception here - a book I was discarding, but my husband decided to keep. It's in 'MJ' because I did read it, but not in 'My books' because I don't want to own it, but I can't really call it unowned either.

There are three topic collections: Theology, Textiles and Crafts, and Food. These are collections because I do collect them, and have quite a few. Being able to see just these in list form is useful. These only include books I own. The equivalent tags include books discarded, borrowed from the library...

The recommended style of viewing is only important for those actually using the theology books. Eventually I may get shelving information for other collections in, too. But that's for after most of our books are in. Not this year!

The first tag usually indicates where the book is shelved. So all of Bill Bryson's books are labeled 'fiction'. We keep them together filed under his name in the fiction bookcase rather than separating them by topic. On the other hand, there is a fair amount of fiction with 'theology' as the first tag because I keep them in (a fiction area of) my theology collection. If a book is tagged 'Steven' it belongs to my son, and I take no responsibility for it. If it doesn't say 'Steven' it might still be his, but I probably have read it, or might read it now that I know he has it. If a tag begins with @, I don't own that book, and that tag says where It is.
