About meI am the founder and lead developer of LibraryThing.

About my libraryMy interests run to ancient history, Greek and Latin. So far I've done maybe 1/2 of what I have. Frankly, it's also gotten a bit mixed-up and redundant, as I use this account for testing. (There are a couple books I test out with, because I know they have certain fields or are in certain libraries.) That said, I've got a good chunk of my history, religion and archaeology in. Greek, Latin and novels to come....

I am trying to connect books of the Summerhill series by author Kate Perry. But the first book is under the author and her other works while the last 2 are under an unconnected author under the same name? How do I fix this? Thanks!

And a good thing it all gets sold overseas...
Testing testing.
Is this some part of LibraryThing that members aren't supposed to see, a behind the scenes sort of thing? It looks a lot of business records rather than any kind of books I usually see. (If this is none of my business, please pardon me. Sometimes I am just too curious for my own good.)

PS Thank you this wonderful site.
