About meNothing much about me, I am a Librarian working with students, trying to get them to enjoy books as much as I do. I, myself, is a bookworm. I, basically read anything. And I mean ANYTHING, but of course, I personally love the horror genre. Mystery / Thrillers is next in line and Literary is the third. True Crime is next. But I still read anything!

That is what happens when I've been shoved books under my nose by my parents and relatives since I was a kid. Particularly my mom.

Currently I am going through the process of reading every fiction (between work) in the place where I work, so I know which books that might interest the students. So that explains why my last 5 books read are mosly teens and children books.

The books in this library consist of books I have read since last 2006. Prior to that is either unlisted or just rated and not reviewed, because I don't really recall the storyline or so. But I still plan to reread some of them.

June 4th, 2007 : 4000 Books!
July 10th, 2008 : 5000 Books!
July 26th, 2008 : 6000 Books!

TBR = To be Read (yes, I have bunch of these. plus the ones I want to reread)

***-# is the places I have placed the books. (organizing them is a pain)

State of library = Still under listing them (books) all in.

Everybody has their own reading challenges to reduce their Mount to read pile of books. I, however, get a bit randy in challenges and I think I have gone overboard. It's hard to choose which books to read in a specific order. I salute the rest of my "Reading Challenge" prone reading aquantainces. But I have to get them all mixed up.

I, instead, have taken the step to get myself a reading log and managed (thanks to fyrefly98's little graph idea I managed to tweak it enough to play a part on my very own "Can You beat the Goal line?" challenge. *chuckles*

Lisa, I am awed by you apaprently, if I understand the foregoing correctly, having read over 3000 books since 2006. I presume this means you have a list of all the books you have read,and I would like to determine if that is true. I have such a list but have never found anyone who has a similar list. But my list is only up to 4886. Here is the timeline:

1000. A History of Modern France, by Alfred Cobban (read 7 Mar 1969)
2000. The Origins of the War of 1914: Volume III, by Luigi Albertini tra
nslated and edited by Isabella M. Massey (read 8 May 1986)
3000. In Retrospect: The Tragedy and Lessons of Vietnam, by Robert S. McNamara with Brian VanDeMark (read 9 Aug 1997)
4000. Camille, by Alexandre Dumas, fils (read 21 Mar 2005)

So you can see that it took me over 40 years to get to 1000, over 17 years to get to 2000, and over 7 years to get to 4000. If I stay alive and competent I should get to 5000 sometime next year or the year after.

Is your lifetime list viewable someplace? Mine is here on LibraryThing. Is yours?
Hey, I saw you have Sweet Submission by Desiree Gelsi can you please tell me where you got it. i really want to read it but cant get it anywhere. Thank you
Howdy,

I have a Map Loco gadget, too, and I'm forever wondering why people have come from near or far to my library. So, someone from Brunei visited my page yesterday (or maybe today--not at all sure about the time differences) and I figured the chance of there being lots of LT members from Brunei would be slim, so I decided to kill some time searching; turns out there are 11 Brunei LTers [listed--there could be more unlisted]. So, that's why I've come to your library (and a fine and fun library it looks to be).

Take it easy,
bookstothesky
Hi, I saw that you had a copy of Desiree Gelsi's Sweet Submission, and I was wondering if you could please tell me where you got a copy from. I read one of her books and I am so curious for more. Thank you.
can someone PLEASE send me the whole story of t.witches (seeing and deceiving & dead wrong).... please please please.... :(
Howdy- I started reading to kids in the Local Elementary School when my youngest child went there, then in my grandkids classes (one of whom started at the same school my baby boy was in- while he was still going there). Now I read in nine different classes (2 Kindergarten, 2 1st Grade, 2 2nd Grade, 2 3rd grade and 1 4th-5th), so I've been reading for some of the kids for six years! It is the coolest thing I do, hands down.

P.S. I adore librarians! (Wish I were one)
I'm so glad you liked them! SantaThing was so much fun I can't wait to do it again next year!
Thank you Santa!

By the way how was The Lightning Thief? My son has been trying to ge me to read it.
The Seven Of Pentacles

Under a sky the color of pea soup
she is looking at her work growing away there
actively, thickly like grapevines or pole beans
as things grow in the real world, slowly enough.
If you tend them properly, if you mulch, if you water,
if you provide birds that eat insects a home and winter food,
if the sun shines and you pick off caterpillars,
if the praying mantis comes and the ladybugs and the bees,
then the plants flourish, but at their own internal clock.

Connections are made slowly, sometimes they grow underground.
You cannot tell always by looking what is happening.
More than half the tree is spread out in the soil under your feet.
Penetrate quietly as the earthworm that blows no trumpet.
Fight persistently as the creeper that brings down the tree.
Spread like the squash plant that overruns the garden.
Gnaw in the dark and use the sun to make sugar.

Weave real connections, create real nodes, build real houses.
Live a life you can endure: Make love that is loving.
Keep tangling and interweaving and taking more in,
a thicket and bramble wilderness to the outside but to us
interconnected with rabbit runs and burrows and lairs.

Live as if you liked yourself, and it may happen:
reach out, keep reaching out, keep bringing in.
This is how we are going to live for a long time: not always,
for every gardener knows that after the digging, after
the planting,
after the long season of tending and growth, the harvest comes.

Great. Send me your e-mail address (mine is mail@christophertusa.com), and I'll e-mail you the e-book.

Thanks again,

Chris
Hi,

Was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Saw you liked Butcher Boy, and I thought you might like my novel since it's also about a disturbed adolescent and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

I'm enjoying browsing your library...
Hi, you added my library to your interesting libraries and I wondered why. That's all.
Thanks,

Lisa - The Javascript widget (the one that displays the covers and links to works/authors) won't work on wordpress.com pages - although if you're using wordpress software on a self-hosted site, I thought that should work... In any case, I use the graphical widget that just generates a JPG with my current reading.

Since it looks like it should link places, but doesn't, I link the whole image to a catalog view with my currently reading books.

Hope that helps!
