About my libraryI'm posting every book I read. The vast majority of them will be owned by the local library, and I'll try to tag them as library. I'm interested to see how what I read matches me up to other people's book lists.

Some movies I've watched in the past are here, but I have now moved this to Letterboxd.

Saw your comment in the New Home discussion - did you figure out how to add the Talk summary back? Figured I'd poke in here rather than in the big discussion. It definitely wasn't obvious to me how to get it back (and I didn't really get the help I needed in that thread).
Hey, did you see that Jo mentions and discusses it on Livejournal?
Yes, that profile catches many nice things that a list cannot. Well done! The list system is one of countless things here that are not quite fully developed yet, and is thus not very visible. Tim is very fond of starting developing a feature, only to abandon it halfway through when something else seems more urgent. One of the few irritants here.

I saw your comment on Jo Walton's profile, and I just wanted to tell you that I listed all the books mentioned in Among Others in a LibraryThing list a while ago. Not quite the same thing as Mori's LT catalogue, but close enough:

Net Galley is a problem for me. . . . I try from time to time to read on line but the manipulations frustrate me. They now have a gorgeous John Muir book I managed to read but I haven't reviewed. Seeing your pix on Flickr I think you would appreciate that book.
I haven't read Finding Nouf - have heard good things about it and the second in the series. I did find myself resistant to the idea of a Saudi man having any contact with a woman, since their society (particularly in urban areas and with traditional people) so strongly discourages it, but I should give it a try anyway. We lived in Riyadh for two years years ago - I gather the separation of sexes is more strict now, not less. It was a bit disconcerting to see buses that had two sections, and yes, women road in the back.
I really enjoyed the new John Harvey book - not quite as much as when I first read the Resnick series, perhaps, but it's still awfully good. And say hej! to your dog from me. Do you call him Gus for short? :)
