About meLibrarian. Television addict. Collector of TV Tie-In novels. Fan of science fiction, fantasy, mysteries and the occasional romance. I also read an eclectic selection of non-fiction. I'm also webmaster for my local science fiction club -- Star Base Andromeda, and for the Hugo-winning science fiction author Robert Reed, so you'll see a number of things associated with both of those topics on my LT bookshelf.

About my libraryI'm adding all of my books somewhat piecemeal. I've got piles of them, and boxes of them, throughout my home, many hidden behind piles and boxes of other things. I'm going to enter every last book that I've collected, although as I'm going through them I'm finding many that I no longer wish to keep. Those, I'm releasing through my BookCrossing account. So...not everything you'll see on my LT shelf is actually still owned by me! After I've entered in all the books I still own physically -- and I'm about 95% done with that -- I'm going to go back and try to enter in all the books I've ever read in the past, as far as I can recall. I'll also try to scan and add covers for any books I've got copies of that there are no covers listed -- these I'll tag with "coverscan", in case you're interested!

Scott, I went to the signing for "The Great Heist" at A Novel Idea near the end, I think there were only three copies left at that point. I enjoyed it, but the occasional spelling error bothers me, and I thought there could have been less excruciating detail on the trials. An interesting bit of Lincoln history that I was unaware of.
I suppose I should rate The Mote in God's Eye 4.5 stars, but there isn't as much leeway with a 5 star system, and I tend to rate the books here that have no major problems with 5 stars.
Received my three SantaThing books for 2012 -- all microhistory volumes, as I had stated that I was interested in this non-fiction category right now. One "History of the World in 6 Glasses" has been on my To Be Read list for a while. One "Longitude" has come highly recommended to me by library customers. And the third "Napoleon's Buttons", I am completely unfamiliar with. All should be good reads!
Trying Library Thing again! Thanks for the recommendation...
My SantaThing package arrived today. Two books -- one a recent entry in a series I've fallen behind (the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde) and one by an author I've heard of but never sampled ("If on a Winter's Night a Traveler" by Italo Calvino).

I look forward to reading both of them. :-)
Nice that you live so close! I don't get there very often any more, but it has always been a favorite place.
I just happened to check your bio and saw A Novel Idea Bookstore listed which is a favorite for my husband and I when we can get to Lincoln. Good to see another Nebraska person here! Oh and look! A Nebraska group on Library Thing! Wow. Going to check things out.
haha! Glad you noticed. I have to admit, I've only read one or two stories so far; I never have time to indulge myself. But I had such a great time meeting him and wanted a good representation of his works to keep. I'll dip into it now and then for a treat.
You have Fandom Directory: Number 7 listed as by Harry Hopkins; I believe it is actually by Marianne S. Hopkins. If you could confirm this and change the author accordingly, I won't have to split poor Harry. Thanks!

Hi, Scott. Somehow the book "Huskernutz" caught my eye. Can't imagine why. *grin*

I'm a Nebraskan too. I actually live in Dunning (other side of Broken Bow), but I'm in Lincoln at the moment as my Mom is a patient at BryanLGH. Lots of time for cruising around LT while we sit around the hospital rooms.

I'll be sure to check out some of your links. They look really interesting.
hi, cannellfan, i'm Joseth Moore (handlename, josethmoore). I ALSO LIVE IN LINCOLN, NEBRASKA! i'm, specifically, a Science Fiction author.

i saw your name pop up as a member that had one of my (Sci-Fi short story)books.

did you review it? someone did. i'm new to LT, so i should stroll around a bit.

***anyway, i was going to suggest that you check out my page again...i've joined LT and i linked both of my NOVELS and all my short stories (but one, it's on an online publication that can't be posted)***


if you did review "Lunar Laws" it probably wasn't that good. but i've adapted all my Lunar shorts into one novel, "Lunar Legends" (which my new novel is a sequel to).

great to meet you! josethmoore
Lee will be glad to hear it. Running an author site takes time.
Hello to a fellow Nebraskan!

I admire your dedication. I'm a lot slower at adding my books. Also I'm just using LT for books I own; I'm on GoodReads for books I'm reading. I wish I'd found this one first!
