About my libraryI've listed most of the books I own. I want my physical library to be "well-edited."

On ratings: something like stocks (strong buy - buy - hold - sell - strong sell) and something like recommendations (must have - highly recommended - recommended - mediocre - DTMFA).

On "collections": I have started tagging some things "passed along" if I had them, read them, then passed them along. What finally got me sucked into doing this is the Early Reviewers thread about sharing books; I was able to forward my ARC to someone else who really wanted to read it, but I could hardly delete it from my library because we are penalized for future ER books if we don't have a review in there. Thus, the tag. And having done that, which semiotically changes "library" from "books on my shelves" to "books that have some presence in my brain," it seemed that 2008 was the natural year to also start logging books I've read but do not owned. These last are currently tagged "borrowed," regardless of who or where I borrowed from.

I'm thinking of doing the LC Classification Challenge slowly over time (see the classification listing); that will be a project for when I need a break from research. (8
