Thanks for that explanation Douglas, I'm in awe of your dedication to classification. I like to keep my plant collections sorted and labelled but I've been a bit casual in my approach to Library Thing Tags. Although, I have just finished changing "Australian" to "Australian author" (towards the end of that little project I started to wonder why I was doing it). Thanks again for your reply.
Hi, yeah, your library caught my attention through one of Library Things weird statistic things - we have very few books in common (but they are good ones) & whatever I was doing at the time...well I can't remember. Anyway, I had a closer look...I haven't worked out your number tags...what's an 820? (I'm a country boy)... You're in the Cats group...and you have a lot of books that aren't in English..very exotic!
Hey Douglas.

You and I share several of the more interesting (and esoteric) gay books in my collection. The Complete Reprint of Physique Pictorial? That fantastic Tashen book, The Male Nude? The Penguin Book of Homosexual Verse? Not to mention Song of the Loon.

You even have Juvenal's Satires, which I only bought as research for something I'm working on. I think I'll take a browse of the rest of your library.
