About meI have, after years of being a nomad, settled in a single area. This means that the storage boxes full of books that have been trailing in my wake for the past ten years can finally be opened and put up on proper bookshelves. (yaaay!) This also means that my books are in the process of being sorted and weeded, so my catalog is not exactly up to date. (boooo.)

I am just beginning the process of listing other forms of media in this account (such as movies, ebooks, and magazines), and I've found manually imputing all this data tedious beyond words. And I edit encoded technical writing for a living. Bleck.

About my libraryThis is my primary LT account, and it contains a listing of books I own. I use it with the intention of preventing myself from acquiring duplicate copies of books. I have two other LT memberships: noneofthis, where I record reviews of books I neither own nor care to; and nonsense, where I keep track of books I am giving away.

Now that the Collections system feature has been enabled, I have juggled some of the content of these memberships to create minor collections in this primary account, where I've been listing books even though I don't own them. The obsessive purist in me recoils at this (—but I don't want these books listed in my library! I don't have them), but it satisfies the requirements of the Early Reviewers and Member Giveaway programs and I can't complain about it too much.

In addition to my LT memberships, I have an account with Goodreads that contains a full list of reviews and is treated as my reading journal.

hmmm, I searched MyriadBooks and got nothing...
However, you LT profile links to http://bookmooch.com/bio/scherizade Is that it?
Hi MyriadBooks,

Just dropping by with a suggestion for the Name That Book group posting rules.

If a book is found, maybe the seeker could edit their original post to say that?

That way, people don't read through the whole thread just to realise at the end that the book has already been named.

Regards,
h

I am looking for a old book. It's about a man who talk his secretary into dressing up for his brother and then falls for her himself. He and his brother are on a airplane that they have to land in a field. Their parents are at a their house having a party when they and the secretary hear about emergency landing.
Hi! I was exploring a book series called "Silver" by Rhiannon Held, and noticed that in Common Knowledge, you have a working title of "Cubs" for book 3, but there's another book 3 identified. I was going to delete the series name from CK for your "Cubs", but realized it would be rude to do so without asking you, in case you have a reason for wanting to keep it. I know you're pretty active on LT so you know what you're doing! :-)

I see you're in Philly -- I grew up in NJ but haven't lived on the east coast for a while now. But I'm traveling to Philly next week for the Frozen Four. It's the same as the NCAA Final Four except for ice hockey instead of basketball. We go every year no matter where it is or who makes it in.

Hope you're having a good week!

Thank you. But you know, I'm not sure. It's also Flagged for Later, among other conflicting collections. Want List is more for books I want to read but my local library doesn't have in circulation. Again, thank you for the offer, but I just checked again and this time my library does have it; I've just requested it. And I've just got run over by karma; the suspension just expired last night and now I have about half a dozen books in transit, from Cloud Atlas to El Narco, in addition to my TBR (Art of Fielding; Jonathan Strange; Quicksilver. . . enjoy your schadenfreude.

Are there any books you want? If I don't have one, at the very least I can keep an eye out at the next book sale.
You won't be disappointed. I should stop now, while I'm ahead.
The Night Circus is such an amazing work I am in awe that it is Morgenstern's first novel. I haven't come across anything like this since the premiere of Audrey Neffinegger (The Time Traveler's Wife) and Julie Orringer (The Invisible Bridge). Hint, hint.
Why yes, my books are pretty awes...Oh. You mean PodCastle. I can imagine, especially for a fantasy fan. Speaking of which, I see that you're a fantasy fan. Forgive the intrusion, but I peeked in your library and I can't help but notice an absence. Can I interest you in The Night Circus, the best fantasy book of 2011?
As one inundated bibliophile to another, I feel I should apologize for that. I didn't mean to add to your load. I should know better. I mean, if it weren't for computer assisted memory archives like LT or Goodreads, I'd've built a shrine to Dewey a long time ago.
Hopefully, I may be able to return the favor.
Thanks for introducing me to the work of Kelly Eskridge.
Hi! Are you still looking for a copy of "The Hunger Games"? I have a soft back that I am going to part with because my sister bought me a box set of all three books for my birthday. (Eeee!) Would you be interested?
Hi, I'm so glad that you like the books. I had fun looking through your library and picking for you, though the 'no vampire' thing made it challenging because EVERYTHING seems to be about vampires now and I wanted to get your something more recently published.
MryiadBooks, you posted a request to name the title of book about an older brother that order a mail order bride for his younger brother. The bride happen to be pregnant and he ends up falling in love with her..... Well it's title is "THE WARFIELD BRIDE". You probably all ready got an answer but I read your post cause I happened to be looking for it myself. Your post helped me to remember more details of the book and I HAD TO FIND IT. Thanks for your help.
Great analysis :)
"I suspect if I really want to read the Snow White fairy tale from the dwarves' point of view, I'll need to write the story myself."

Have you read Gregory Maguire's short story "The Seven Stage a Comeback"? Not a strict retelling, being more of a sequel, but it focuses on the dwarves and is quite wonderful.
Thanks for adding BannedBooksLibrary to your interesting libraries. Happy Reading! (And Happy Banned Books Week!)
To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter;
to be thrilled by the stars at night;
to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring;
these are some of the rewards of the simple life.
