Hi, I seem to have done something similar to you,moved to Scotland and then divorced, lost all my books and personal stuff as well. I now have about 2000 books in a small flat and I have to re-organise them as I can't get many more in!

Enjoyed your stories about book shelves and heavy boxes. Two rooms-full and another wall from IKEA! That particular marvel arrived too late to Portugal for me, though. My walls are coveted by pictures AND books, though the books are winning and I have stacks of frames piled up on the floor waiting for a gap. What I don't understand is how the mega libraries of LT are accomodated. I even have books in the kitchen.

Just checked up on our books in common. See you have Bertrand Russell on microfilm. Maybe that's how they do it!

Aloha! I wish I had known about this sooner. It's great! I've been trying to figure out a way to log all my books and be able to sort by genre, author, and a variety of other means. This is perfect! But now it's going to take me forever to get my whole library logged. Thankfully (or sadly, depending on your perspective), I only have a few hundred books.

And now I'm off to Half Price Books to buy more. Squee!!!!!

Good to see you here. Once I get all my books in, we can talk bout some of the ones we have in common!

I see that you have Kate Soper's book "What is Nature". I was wondering if you've read it, and if so, what you thought of it. How did you come to buy it?
My wife found Silence and Honeycakes similar in style to his other more popular-market oriented books, ie he's drawing on his extensive knowledge of the Desert Fathers but much more focussed on making it relevant to now rather than as a history lesson. She found it a very refreshing approach.

(I should add that I haven't read most of our "religion"-tagged books, and have only tagged as "unread" those that I do intend to read someday!)
Hello. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I have been off LibraryThing for a week or so. A lot of the "criticism" I own is partly to give me ideas on who to buy or what to read next, although I do enjoy it for it's own sake as well. I haven't seen the Attebery book but the reviewer on Amazon gave it high marks. On your recommendation I will add it to my Wish List. The work of criticism or biography that made the biggest impression on me recently was The Unmasking Of Oscar Wilde by Joseph Pearce. I hadn't known much about Wilde before I read the book, but it made me pick up his Complete Works for the first time. What a fascinating character! Have you read much Wilde? (I noticed you also had his complete works.)
Multiple copies of P&P? :D

Because I collect Austen stuff, and whenever I see an interesting-looking edition, I buy it. Also, most books come with preface or afterword essays that I like to own.
