About meI've semi-retired after fifteen years as a software engineer. Since then, I've taken a page from Robert Heinlein and do anything (legal) for a buck. Just a little humor, but please check the reference. (August 2007)

An update to my status as now fully retired. So far it's proving interesting. (May 2012)

About my libraryAfter twenty+ years of accumulation, finding this site is allowing me to catalog my thousands of books. (Aug 2007)

Finally, after two and a half years I'm almost 75-80% done with the cataloging. (Jan 2010)

I've started revising my collections and moving from paper format to eBooks. They are so much better when it comes to moving and having a great selection while on the go. The paper books are slowly being distributed to the local VA hospital and friends of the library. (May 2012)

Comments Section

Some points to note are in the comments section. A "v" signifies that I have verified the information about that book. During verification I often edit the title, author, etc to correct incorrect or add missing data.

The series of oddball character is my location system. For example "SR1S2" shows the book is located in Spare Room (SR), bookcase 1 and on shelf 2. Other codes used are Living Room (LR), Bedroom (BR), Office (OF) or Box. Boxes are numbered and store paperbacks that I have read. (Aug 2007).

I've started to move these location codes into the tags field. (Jan 2010)

For those interested, there are 5 bookcases in my living room, 2 in my bedroom, 6 in the spare room and 4 in the office. These range from 4 to 8 shelves each and from 30 to 48 inches in width. There are also 24 full boxes with about 60 mass market paperbacks each. You do the math(LOL) as I'm still trying to get an accurate count.
