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.
