About me"The creature you are about to witness is known as a "Redthing". Found on the coast of Antarctica, he likes books, video games, baseball, and, among other things, LibraryThing. Despite his cute, furry appearance, do not try to feed him, for he has fangs and really sharp claws that make you itch. You know, kinda like one of them really annoying papercuts. He is currently trying to get a Bachelors of Science in Biology, so you might approach the exhibit and see nothing. You might begin to believe that this zoo is of poor quality. You might also notice that the creature only manages only one book a month at times. Fear not; for he is not stupid, just really really busy. Honest."

About my library==========================================
My library is crammed into one small bookshelf and the shelves on my computer desk (Not now, I'm just too lazy to take new pictures). My favorite section of the bookstore is SF/Fantasy, which I have found to be quite an addictive genre.

hello, need your opinion!
we are sharing the book of Zumdahl, Steven S. "chemistry", do you think the book will be suitable for undergraduate students (first year biology major)?
with appreciation to a quick answer, edna
Just read your review of LoTR/Fellowship of the Ring. Umm, can you tell me where that cave you're hiding in is? I might have to join you soon...
Oh joy, more books to save up for :D
DUDE! have you seen DUDE, have you seen this place?
I shall read all of these, and get back to you with my list. =] Ta!
You lucky man! I brought 3 books for £5 yestoday... and I got another 2 for £3... but that doesn't match yours, damn you >.>
You've told me this three, THREE times now!! =P If you're bored, read a book!
Holy cow, REdthing reviewed some books O_O I thought you hated doing that!
Lol, well, at least you're 3 books up on me, no?

And of course they don't have it. It's one of the best books in the world, and the second someone sees it BAM it's gone.
Do my eyes decieve me? Redthing, showing pity? O.O

It was in referece to Root. From Arty F.

And you die 3 days after my birthday! >.>
Everybody should like the Hobbit, it's a good book.
I used to read it at night, to combat insomnia.
Was the second lotr better than the first? =P
It is indeed the Good Stuff. =P Pleased you like 'em!
I dont WANT to read more... some of the books I have are not listed on here... so THERE! lol
fine, dude it
(Dude! I'm like, a dudette... >.>) I have thought the same thing, but you either have to grin and bare it, or wikki the book and pawn it off on someone else. They prolly did exactly that with you!
That happens here, too, but do you see any books tagged as "unread"? nooooo.... lol ^^
