Tuesday Thingers!

Bop over to The Boston Bibliophile to learn more!

How many books do you have cataloged in your LibraryThing account? How do you decide what to include- everything you have, everything you've read- and are there things you leave off?

I have 575 "books" listed in my librarything catalog. Everything in my catalog I physically own, I do include comics and zines which can sometimes only be a handful of pages. I'm slowing getting the covers for these into my catalog. The only things I have that I don't include are books from my childhood that I'm embarrassed that I still have and hope to get rid of!

I'd like to find a way to include all the library books and what not I've read in there somewhere but for now I like it being a collection of what I actually have at my fingertips. To try and counterbalance library books not being accounted for I've put the books I've read in the last few years on this blog in a few different posts. I've been keeping a list of everything I've read since about 6th grade!

As far as wish list books go, those stay on my amazon wish list.


  1. I started my LT the same way you did- with what I had at my fingertips, and then gradually expanded. It's nice to meet you & welcome aboard! :-)

  2. Hey! Nice to meet another LT at Tuesday Thingers!

  3. Wow a list since 6th grade, that's impressive :)

  4. kbookreviews-

    yeah! it all started one summer when my mom explained to me the holds process at the library and the fact that i could go onto the computer and HOLD HOLD HOLD books! I don't know if i was worried about rereading a Babysitter's Club book or what but I decided to keep a list! I actually just this January decided to do the same thing with movies, why not right!

  5. :D that's really amazing

    i'm sure i may have taken out about the same amount of books but to actually have read all of them that's a different story

    didn't you ever feel like, "this book sucks!" and stop right there? that's what often happens to me; i know bad habit

    with peace

  6. Actually a larger chunk of my books than I'm proud of I haven't read yet. That's why I'd like to find a way to include the library books I've read, since those I've read for sure!

    I can't recall many books that sucked that I stopped reading, I usually end up finishing them hoping they will go somewhere i do the same with movies, that's a bad habit as well!
