About my libraryThe books in my library are all books that I own. I may or may not have read them. I consider my books to be "reference". I don't include books that I have read but don't own because either (a) I read them years ago before I got into the book buying habit and my recall is sparse, or (b) I read them more recently for mental escape (e.g. mysteries) but didn't care enough to keep or record them.

I am gradually going through my library to make sure data is accurate, combining/separating/disambiguating authors and works as I encounter issues, researching and entering Common Knowledge. This is an extremely slow process because I can attend to it only occasionally. If you happen to notice an error (or have a question about a decision I've made), please let me know. I will be happy to correct typos or explain decisions, I welcome discussion about standards for data entry, and I am interested in learning how my individual data affects group data.

Thanks for your great selections in this year's Santa thing. I don't own either & am very much enjoying them. Thanks for the list of suggestions also, some of which I have not come across before.

You're kidding. There must be another Katherine. So sorry.
Hi Katherine,

Thank you so much for The Clearing and The Good House, two books I've had on my WL for some time. And I love the two beautiful bookmarks. I had so much fun with the Swap this year.

I just finished reading Jane Eyre and enjoyed your review of it very much! Thanks!
I've started a thread about the Baltimore meetup.
Happy Thingaversary quebo!
I have ordered my self-gifts for mine & am just waiting for them to arrive.
I just found out about the Thingaversary this year. lol!~! But I think I
ordered enough for this years to make up for the past 5.
I hope you are enjoying your summer and getting a lot of fun experiences in.
Cheers & thank you for the happy, happy. :-)
I noticed your name in the list of today's Thingaversaries. Congratulations, and may you have many more of them!
It was so good to meet you Katherine. I hope to see you again at another meet-up one day.
It was great to meet you Katherine!
I lurked all through your TBD category. I'm being a dummy; that's TBR, right? Really, really great stuff!


Hi, Katherine. We were both posting on Lucy's thread at the same time!
Happy Weekend!!!
Thanks for the note . . . I actually started Origin in February of 2009, but never finished it. Obviously, "currently reading" is a bit of an overstatement :) . . . though I do tend to finish it eventually. I'll check out the Origin group when I do.
Thanks again,
Wonderful!!! A spring meet up in Philadelphia would be grand!
I would very much enjoy meeting you.

All the best.
Lancaster is not far from me. Perhaps in the spring we could have a meet up.

I hope you will review [Embracing Defeat], or at least let me know what you think of it. It is very much on my must-read list! :^)
Thanks for the encouragement about dc. Still up in the air. It was nice to hear from you.
Great to skim your books and reviews. Thanks for taking the trouble. Enjoyed very much.
