I’m still just as obsessed with LibraryThing as when I discovered it two years ago. If you haven’t checked out the site before, you really should, because it’s fantastic. I get so much pleasure out of cataloging and tagging and talking about my books, I really should be a librarian. They recently hit 30 million books cataloged so are having a bookpile contest to celebrate. I’ve never entered before but decided to go for it this time. What I came up with is below. All the entries can be seen on flickr.


Books in the pile, top to bottom:
The Poetry and Short Stories of Dorothy Parker
To Hell and Back
The Iliad
Rory O’More
A Death on Crooked Lake
Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth
Breaking the Limit
The American Quilt
The Complete Walker IV
Little Big Man
Whores and Thieves of the Worst Kind
At Home with Books
The Tender Bar
Alice in Wonderland / Through the Looking Glass
Everything is Miscellaneous
Ye Yaille Chere

One book which I meant to put in the pile but completely forgot about until just now is Biblioholism: The Literary Addiction. Damn. Might be worth a redo just for that title. (Yes, I am that anal. Let’s call it “pays attention to detail.”)
