About meFAR too much time on LT

About my libraryThis is my general book collection which, when completed, should have 6000+ books.

I have MANY other separate LT lists (17+) relating to books, dvds, and cds -- owning them, reading them, watching them and listening to them. I also maintain lists for future reading, viewing and listening. I even have a separate list for my travel destinations. Some are public, most of them private (I mean do you actually care what I read, watch, or listen to?)

My genre fiction collection is listed on LT under 'mysterysf' (which, when finished, will probably have 4000+ books.)

So that I don't clog up my 'actual' libraries, I have created LT sites for those books that I wish to read/purchase under 'toread1' (for general books) and 'toread2' (for genre books.) Amazon also has a great website for listing books one is interested in purchasing in the future. My list there is over 400 books long. I buy about 200 books a year, many via amazon.

Because I wish to maintain 'pure' book collection lists, I also have LT lists for my cd collection ('cd collection')[now over 15,000 albums -- out of about 18-20,000 albums I own] and dvd collection ('dvdcollection')[now about 5500 films/tv series].

For personal purposes I maintain private LT lists of those movies/tv series watched/to be watched ('toview') and cd's listened to/to be listened to ('tolisten').

For reference purposes I also maintain private LT lists of books that I have obtained over the years and read over the years. I travel a fair amount and have an LT list 'worldtravel' of where I have been/what I have seen.

I attempt to keep these various lists tagged and cross-referenced as appropriate. (Yes, I know, I devote FAR too many hours of the day to updating/maintaining these lists.) Someday they will be done and the 4-6 hours a day I spend on LT can be put back into actual reading/viewing. I DO get to listen to my cd collection while working on my various LT lists.
