Nah, not for me, this one I’m afraid. I do read alot (an awful lot!) but I can’t do with reviewing books, pulling them to pieces and putting them back together again. If I like it, I like it and I don’t want to have to think about why I like it – I just accept that I do.
I don’t see the point in cataloguing my books either. I have a book shelf for that. A bookshelf that I can look at much easier than I can any database. OK maybe not if I am away from home but then I have never been in such a rush to see what books I possess that it can’t wait till I get home. After all, if I needed to know something about the book so badly I would probably have to thumb through it anyway to make sure it was the right one/said what I thought it said, etc.
But then again, there was a link through to ReadIt, SwapIt – now there’s a site I could use. I have dozens of books that I know I won’t read again that I would happily swap with someone for something better. And it’s free!!!! (apart from postage and packing!). A bit of an online Stringers-meets-Ebay, but less complicated. Brilliant idea! Why didn’t I think to look for something like that before? I am still back to cataloguing but at least there is a purpose to it now. I am a happy bunny.
