About My Library
I've managed to catalog almost all my physical books, & most of the ebooks, too. I'm currently trying to scan all my print books to PDF, but I've reached the point where it's difficult to let go of more.

Special tags I'm using:
"____ library" (borrowed from ____ library),
"nae" ("not actual edition"),
"blewmymind" (books that gave my head a good shake at some point in my life), and
"BOX1", "BOX2", etc. (no room for these on the shelves).

Yes, I have that many books in progress at one time (sometimes for years); I like to nibble on a large buffet of books, and sometimes I just get stalled at some point. Fiction and poetry I tend to zoom right through, though. Most of my "Read but unowned" books are fairly recent; cataloging all the books I've ever read is a Sisyphean task even I'm not crazy enough to undertake!

Want to make a book cover mosaic like the one in my profile? Look here: http://www.librarything.com/blog/2007/01/you-are-what-you-read.php
