1k at last ...

Well, finally broke over the 1,000 line in my LibraryThing catalog ... I just finished Bookcase 7, which puts me up to 1,011 books logged in so far. I still have all of Bookcase 2 and 4 to go, plus shelves 3-5 on Bookcase 1, and 4-5 on Bookcase 3, and 3-4 on Bookcase 8. Again, some of those are going to be challenging from a location aspect (for example, there's somewhere near 27 cubic feet of "stuff" between me and C8-S3/4!), so things may end up being pretty sporadic from this point on (well, I have a pretty clear shot at C2, but it's going to be a hassle and the shelves are completely loaded with stuff in front of the books, which will have to be moved, and then replaced). I know that The Wife would be very happy if I was throwing stuff out as I dug through this stuff ... but that's a particular type of Hell for me, and, except for a rare bit of stuff here and there, I've been just moving and replacing all the ephemera that's accumulated on the shelves over the past decade or so!

Anyway, I'm very pleased to have passed the 1,000 book mark. It's interesting to play around on Library Thing to see who has what books ... I've found that I have the most titles in my library by several authors over there! It is also fascinating to find how many books only show up in my library ... sure, LT has less than 18,000 users at this point, but still.

I ran across another ISBN "mystery" ... Dutton for some reason decided to recycle the ISBN numbers it had given to books Two and Three of Gurdjieff's Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson from their 1980 paperback edition, with the ISBNs currently being for some of their kids books ... somebody might get their eyes opened a bit if somehow the previous book with that ISBN showed up!
