And here are some pictures of the completed sort-out!
This is the bulk of the fiction – sadly I had to double stack, but at least there aren’t piles of books on top of each other, as there were before… it’s important all my books are in a logical order, because Our Vicar and Our Vicar’s Wife are frequently asked to find a book and post it to Oxford!
Thanks for all your tips about LibraryThing and other cataloguing websites – I’m a little tired after this sort out, but might transfer it over at some point… I do have a LibraryThing account, but was surprised at their miniscule limit for the free account. What do they think I am?!
And to answer a couple of questions from yesterday – yes, I did get rid of some books! They’ve gone to Honeypot, the church bookshop thing Our Vicar’s Wife runs. Mostly duplicates, it must be said, but I was more ruthless with one or two…. And Peter asks simply “Why?” Hmm. Partly because Our Vicar and Our Vicar’s Wife bought me the filing cards and told me I should do it, partly because I like having the records, and partly because it might stop me buying books I already have! Because my collection is split between two different places, sometimes it gets tricky to remember what I have…
