Apparently he has two copies of the Deathly Hallows... :)

Well, I guess everyone must have some flaws.

The green ones are another HP. I wonder what the others are.

The big red one looks like it says Principles of ________.

#1 tim: I bet one is his reading copy and the other is a signed copy - he seems that he might be a little on the neurotic side like that to me.
#4 flee: Principles of Biochemistry, maybe?

Wow, I should really be working instead of looking up Dr. Horrible's books on Amazon...

>5 scaifea:
Sure looks like it - Principles of Biochemistry - ExVivre owns a copy. We could get him to confirm.

flee: It makes sense - clearly that would be a handy book around if you're working on stuff like freeze-rays and such.

So, I want to know what crew member happened to have book that lying around and do they use LT? ;)

Holy crap, that's what it is. The video makes it easier to see the words and confirm the cover pattern.

And here is Penny, reading... The Toy Collector (took some research, but very appropriate)

>6 DaynaRT: Yep, it's Albert L. Lehninger's Principles of Biochemistry. I also recognize the book next to it: James S. Walker's Physics. I'm not quite sure what edition.

There you go, Tim. All answers to life's questions can be found right here at LT.

I think the other HP is "Goblet of Fire," isn't it? But apparently I've been mucking about with Priestley's library too long ... um, who's Dr. Horrible?

Yeah, that's it.

Stick with it at least until the first song...

I have to agree with scaifea on the signed copy. Or maybe he has so many books (somewhere else, obviously) that he forgot he'd bought it already and bought it again . . . not that I've ever done that. no.

And this post made me sporffle out loud when I saw it!

Besides my car making a brief appearance in a CNN new story, that blog post is the closest I will probably come to fame.

What happened to you car?

My husband worked next door to a company whose owner went missing in Iraq. My car was in the parking lot the day CNN filmed exterior shots.

Ha. Apart from LibraryThing, I think I've never been in the news. Once I was interviewed—a man-on-the-street interview—by some BBC reporter, I think, about the U.S. elections. I have no idea if it made it in the news. The reporter seemed to think my opinions were too detailed and not typical.

Not at all surprised! :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one that got excited about my new-found LT fame, flee. I was practically giddy when I saw this thread make the thingology page! If only I could figure out some way of using this on my CV...

We need to start awarding barnstars (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Barnstars)

Oh, that's it! How many barnstars do you think I'd need to get tenure...?

It's Lehninger, 2nd Edition,

Creighton's Proteins- Structure and Molecular Properties

Lodish's Molecular Cell Biology 3rd Edition

Make Love The Bruce Campbell Way by, of course, The Man, The Myth, The Chin: Bruce Campbell.

and Johnny The Homicidal Maniac: The Director's Cut by Jhonen Vasquez

Oddly appropriate for a Mad Scientist cum Evil Villain, dontcha think? Ah, the internets, is there anything they can't do?

Since they were/are my books, does that take all the fun out of this? They didn't really bring any set dressing. It's like I'm cheating or something...

According to blog comments, that's the guy whose house it was!

_lifeofreilly_ Seriously? you worked on the set for Dr. Horrible and supplied these books for the shelves? I LOVE the LT UNIVERSE!

I think that's his house, even.

I can't even describe or explain the sense of geeky joy that this particular cataloguing project gives me.

31timspalding

I think life should convince Whedon to let us come over and catalog is books :)

That sounded more profound (but also confusing) when I thought you meant actual life, as opposed to lifeofreilly.
