About my libraryOnly a small chunk of the overall library holdings here at Chateau Dysfunction are in LibraryThing thus far. All of the large format SF&F (hardcovers and trade paperbacks) is in, along with some of the small format paperbacks, which make up the bulk of the SF&F collection – generally because I’ve now trained myself to add books to LT as I acquire them, or I’ve pulled them out of the stacks for another reason and decided to catalogue them while they were out. For this reason also there’s only a small selection of the crime and cookbook holdings currently represented in my LT library.

Because of some gentle urging from certain Associates elsewhere, I have just now started to methodically add the rest of the SF collection, but it’s very much going to be a work in progress for awhile. Also, I’ve done nothing about tagging anything yet, as I want to think carefully about what sort of tagging taxonomy I will use.

Update: 13 April 2009
Have now entered all of the small format SF&F up into the 'S' authors, but have reached the eand of the easily accessible SF shelves. Diverting on to the crime/mystery bookcases for a while to make a start there also.

Have also decided on a few basic broad tags - nothing too idiosyncratic. :)
