Are you all done yet? Is it safe to talk about it?

Jul 26, 2007, 2:53pm Top

Yes, I'm done!

My husband isn't--he's still re-reading book 5 as preparation, and I keep telling him that marriages end over smaller differences than this! How are we supposed to sit down to dinner together with him saying how happy he is that Delores Umbridge is dead?

Bwaa haa haa!!!

Ah well... At least your husband is reading them! Mine won't touch them. :o/

My wife is 3/4 thru HP7, then I get it.
I did read a very funny detective story, Three Bags Full in which all the detective work is done by sheep, particularly Miss Maple {sic}. Baaah!

#5 - How's it going, Bob? You sure have made progress on you LT catalog! Holy meatballs and sausage! How many more books do you have to add? We share 160+ books, at this point.

I've got two boxes of books in storage, plus I have about 40 more cookbooks to catalog and about 30 more titles in public transport, so maybe 200 altogether. This will get me over 4,500. Then I will have to think about catalogable maps. I have put in about 40 "library book"s. We are going to to do a little bit of pruning. Your and my compatibility rating is at 99% for our collections: I think your libary corresponds more with mine than any other. Are you still cataloging older books?

I still have 100 - 200 books w/o ISBNs to enter. Most are over 100 years old, but some are musty old college textbooks, including my mouldy math books. Yes, the %'s calculate popularity/rarity of books. I see we share a quite few books that I haven't noticed anywhere else on LT. Interesting!

I forgot about my no ISBN pile, there are about 30 in it right now plus, about 15 books my stepfather gave me that I have virtually no interest in that are 100 years old. So, I'm definitely going to hit 4,600. I'm sure my wife doesn't want me to go to the storage place for those other books, as we have no where to put them yet. I will keep my pruned books in LT and tag them "withdrawn."
