Just sad about wanting to be a mom but am not one yet.
ladylenneth: Hang in there. Clearly I have no idea how long you've been trying or anything about your situation, so clearly I have no footing on which to do anything but sympathize and send good, 'productive' vibes your way. I know just what that anticipation/anxiety is like, and I hope there are good things at the other end of it very very soon for you!
1. Check my BookMooch wish-list - because my TBR is only as high as the highest mountain range, so I obviously need more books.
2.Check out LibraryThing talk to find more books to put on my BookMooch wish-list., because my TBR is only as high....
ETA: I use my phone to check all this in bed. :)
This will tell you all about it. Start at the top and work down as far as you wish...
Hope everyone has a great day!!
Of course it may not be for you, but wanted to share my conversion experience, which I wasn't looking for but happened anyway. I'm still not a HUGE moocher, because most of my books I still want to keep, but I'm really happy with the choices in my TBR pile right now! And it feels really good to know the books I've given away are wanted instead of in a trash can somewhere.
I also need to be more active on there.
#20: but think of all the books you'll miss mooching if you don't get them NOW!!!!!!!!
You might NEVER GET THEM if you don't MOOCH THEM NOW!!!!
:D Going back to work now... lol
25: Postage is a problem for quite a few people. I budget for mine, and I keep to it, or it could go really high. USPS has an amazing media mail rate for within the USA, which does help make it more affordable. But I can understand needing to stay away from the temptation. I'm from Canada, and spend $7.77 to mail a mass market to the USA. My first trip to the post office was over 90 bucks as it was full of large, heavy books. I've since learned that lesson...
I also have a book budget that must be applied to all new and used book purchases. *sigh*
Fortunately Christmas is coming up, and then I have a birthday! So hopefully a gift card or two will make its way into my Christmas stocking.
Though in the end I am too stingy to share my books. Haha
I am just glad I have a nook the books are secent priced and sometimes I get a good cheap one.
There are plenty of books I should read that I haven't read yet but I love buying books. I think its my vice its rare for me to so I cherish it.
If I could live on a planet where I could be awake/asleep 24/12 hours I would be quite happy, because these 24 hour days aren't working for me.
I want to remove a book from "currently reading" , but still keep it in my library. How do I do that?
There are two ways (or, really, one way and two different places to do it.)
If you are viewing your library (or a collection) as a whole in list view then there are a set of icons to the right that do different things. The middle icon is an orangey-brownish folder-looking thing with an arrow on it. That is the 'set collections' icon. If you click it, a drop down menu will appear with a list of all your collections and you can highlight (or unhighlight) any collection you want that book to appear in. (It must appear in at least one.)
You can do the same thing from the book's main info page (where you can also do all other edits.) From the book's main page the top section is called 'book information' and it will tell you the collections the book is currently in. You will again see that orangey-brownish folder-looking icon next to the word collections. You can click the icon to bring up the drop-down menu as above.
And that's all you need to do to switch collections. There are a number of default collections (such as 'Your Library' 'Wishlist' 'Read but unowner') and when you get more comfortable with it, you can try making your own custom collections for whatever you might need.
Hope this helps.
