About meI'm the one who's made the 1001 books spreadsheet. Get your copy of the v4 HERE

About my libraryI live in Papua New Guinea with very limited and expensive Internet access so, my library is on hold until I return to a land where this is not so.

that would be me, I can found that it crashes when trying to put the picture of the book in. You have to close it out and reopen it to put the picture in. If you don't what you've already done since the last time you closed out is lost. I also am unable to put dates it. It just keeps putting the current date in. I liked the old app better.

Kind of understand why I had to pay twice for the app but still was disappointed and I wish the info was stored in a cloud and updated to both my I pad and cell phone and if changing phones could be updated. Its too bad to have to do it all over again.

Still, love the app and thanks for all the work.

Hi John,
Thanks for your message on my LT page but you did already solve the problem for me, remember>?!
Hi Arukiyomi,
I am very happy with the spreadsheet but I can't, for example, sort by author. I need a password to do that. Can you help me out? I did pay for the spreadsheet by PayPal.
I hope to hear from you!
I would be more than happy to send it to you. I trust you understand that genres are subjective to some degree. Also, you may want to know that I have not done the genres for the 230 or so books that I have already read. I have this information on an excel spreadsheet. Would you like for me to send it to your email address listed above?
Thanks!! I went out and bought the 2006 issue today so I'll compare them
Hello, I just bought a book from the Book Depository that you might find interesting: The White Mary, by Kira Salak. It's not often that I come across a book set in Papua New Guinea, so when I do, I always snap them up. I probably won't read it for a while so I can't comment on its quality, but I thought I'd point it out to you in case you want to add it to your wishlist.
I didn't realize that you had created the spreadsheet! I bought the mid-range one today, and donated five pounds. Great work!
Thanks! It's very similar to the spreadsheet I keep myself. Are the non-lite versions worth buying?
I just read your review of "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" which I purchased today and it's making me antsy to read it. It's making me no longer question my purchase! :)
Hey, I liked your review of Bel Ami, especially this part:

I wondered if he was asking, so what if you’re immoral, there’s no judgement anyway. Let’s assume there isn’t, does that justify immorality anyway?

I picked up that book on a whim at some sale or another and haven't read it yet. You've piqued my interest, so thanks for that!
Hey, there! I doubt my blog draws the kind of crowd you're looking for, but I'd be willing to review your v. 4 spreadsheet. I'll still give a small donation since my blog is also..small...I just like getting things early :)

I enjoyed reading the posts on the Wind-Up Bird Chronicle thread. You're right, it's not a book for cat (or skin) lovers.

I was hoping you might drop by the Le Salon thread “Alex Austin: Underappreciated Author” The thread has been up about three weeks and I think the accumulated inteview should be intriguing to anyone interested in books and the writing process. I also make a few comments on Murakami. The URL is
