I have catalogued 2032 books :-D
And there is a very good chance that that is all the books :-D
... I mean, lets face it, it's never all the books
but it is all the boxes, all the bookcases, all the shelves
gone through at least once and put into LibraryThing.
... is there a way to back up LibraryThing?
... not that I'm paranoid, it's just the first time in my life the catalog is a near approximation of reality...
There's still all the magazines, the Analog, F&SF, Galaxy, IF, Asimov's and Venture
and those will go in the LibraryThing, probably, but I may have to type them all in manually, which was the case for far too many of the last couple of shelves and takes half way to forever. The idea of adding manually a whole bookcase of magazines, which are skinny and very numerous... oooooh, that's going to take a run up.
So for a while the number of books in the catalogue maybe might go down instead of up.
I mean, that seems fundamentally unnatural, but I've given away several feet of books by now, on account of them being actually rather boring.
Since everything is in the catalogue from now on if I decide anything else is boring the count might go down.
... but it's entirely possible for me to go to a book shop once a week if I feel like it, so let's face it, that number is unlikely to shrink much.
I am doing a happy dance
and I texted my mum
because this is a momentous occasion.
All! The! Books!
