À mon sujetI am a pathological bibliophile, married to another one. We live amidst a lot of books.
(I was so excited when I discovered LibraryThing that I actually wriggled and squeaked!)

We both have difficulty walking past a second-hand bookshop: I even bought my first car from a second-hand bookshop (well, OK, from someone who had advertised in the bookshop window!).

LibraryThing passed 70,000,000 books at 10:07 pm on 8 February 2012. Yes, I was watching. Yes, I am that sad sometimes: now stop snerking and get back to your book.

À propos de ma bibliothèqueA very high proportion of our collection is second hand, and some of it is bibliographically challenging. Unfortunately much of it is in boxes, but now I have found LibraryThing, I can catalogue the contents of the boxes! (I'm slightly appalled to discover how much unread SF was lurking under the bed!) Much of the non-fiction was acquired in the half-conscious belief that, if you are interested in a subject, having a book on your shelves will somehow result in the osmotic transfer of information into your brain. It doesn't seem to be working yet.

For information (broadly):
his zoology, poetry, Zen, much of the theology, most of the SF, and the bulk of the Inklings collection;
hers classics (Latin & Greek), folktale, explorers, 19th-century fiction, GirlsOwn collection (including a whole box of Chalet School paperbacks I just found in the bottom of the wardrobe!), and Laura Ingalls Wilder.
both everything else...
But the whole process has been slowed up to an enormous degree by the arrival of TinyBookworm, now joined by TinierBookworm. I've tackled the shared part of the children's book collection. I think I'll leave Mrs Bookworm's Loebs and other heavy classical stuff (eight boxes!!!) till later, along with the immense mountain of girl's school stories and the like.

I don't think we will appear very high on many other users' "weighted" book-sharing lists, because any substantial overlap in a particular sphere is diluted by the diversity of the collection. I'm slightly stunned to discover that the library with which we share the most books uniquely (three on the "Vous et Nul Autre" list) is that of C. S. Lewis!

Tagging Notes
"Inklings" I apply to books by or about Lewis, Tolkien, Charles Williams, and their circle. I seem to have rather a lot. Books about (not by) Lewis and Tolkien are also tagged "Lewis/Tolkien studies". For the related non-Inklings authors George MacDonald, G. K. Chesterton, and Dorothy L. Sayers, I have introduced the tag "VII" (alluding to the literary journal "Seven").

The tag "children's literature" I use for books about children's literature, not for examples of the genre, which are simply tagged "children's". I'm still experimenting with "YA", as it's not easy to tell which books are really intended for 'young adults'. (What a silly term: really it means 'older children'. But they say that in dealing with adolescents, the trick is to treat them like children while making them think that you're treating them like adults!) Fairytales are tagged "fairytales"; the tag "fairytale" indicates a book about fairytales.

The tag "[export]/[exported]" means that the book is either on the "out" pile or has gone to the Oxfam shop (or wherever)! These books remain in the catalogue to retain the links to reviews etc., but the tag may vanish now that I have a "read but not owned" collection.

Oh, and the loobry is the collection of books on the windowsill by the loo.
