so i'm guessing you were also at the five borough farms event last night. I'm a fan of your site and I follow you on here as well, shame we didn't get a chance to meet.
Well, it's 2 a.m. in the Chicago area and I stumbled upon your marvelous LT library of architecture related books, from there going to and Flicker (I love the Accidental Camera Obscura). I confess that I've added you to my "interesting libraries" sites in my somewhat round-about way (They are in my "About My Library" section along with notes on why I was interested in a particular member's books). It all started from "Chicago, Growth of a Metropolis."

I suspect that I'll be signing up for your weekly message from In the meantime, I do need some sleep.

Thanks, Munn
congrats, a good find even if it s the second time around
you lost it already? you just added it to your library recently, no?
nice pick up on "projective cast", i have it in hard cover and its one of my favs, definitely one of my "in case of fire grab this and run" books
I was doing it manually also and then noticed that by going to other users libraries, yours for one, with similar books I could open and save the data from their library entry for the same book into my own. Thanks for the response, posts and daily info. My only other question is how you get your hands on so many books to review and own, I assume you are not buying all of them are you?
Thanks for introducing me to Library Thing, what the fastest way to populate your physical library into this virtual one?

I'm sorry to have to ask you this but do you know where i can get a pdf format of architectural graphics and architecture form, space and order by Francis dk Ching ??

i would appreciate it if you could help me

Thank you
Hey John,
we really need to stop meeting like this.


I recognized your name from your blog. I use to get your weekly dose email newsletter. Then one day I noticed I hadn't received it in quite a long time. Now it's been years. I'm so glad I stumbled onto your library.

With 254, you have the most architecture books listed on Librarything.

With only 58, I'm ranked 23rd.

We have 13 books in common, and to think, only 5 are architecture books!

Oh, Shazam, from your blog I just learned that you relocated to New York this month (your profile here still says Chicago). I'll have to buy you a drink sometime.

Love your 'to-read' tag. Very useful.

BTW I have all my architecture students checking out, I have been a subscriber for a long while. Thanks for all the great, different, unique projects.
