I wanna guard your dreams and visions

Finished logging the first two shelves of the new bookshelf in the bedroom, which brings me up to 256 books. I'm still toying with the idea of getting a life memebrship in librarything.com, but except for the possible utilty of putting my library catalogue in my blog (which I can already do by linking my Geocities site to my LJ or my blog and uploading the Excel file there) it wouldn't really save me a lot of time. Most of my nonfiction books already have the DDN on the reverse of the title page, and for those that don't, most of them are easily hunted down here. For the few exceptions, of course, there's this useful book. Actually, I have an abridged version of the 10th edition of the Dewey Decimal Guide, but since I don't have a pressing need to classify most of my books out to the sixth decimal place it serves quite nicely for figuring out where the Frank Cho Liberty Meadows collections go, to say nothing of the Fastner & Larson books. (The answers, of course, are 741.5973 for the former, right next to the Chas. Addams books, and 741.973 for the latter, next to the Kelly Freas collections. Which is only appropriate, after all.)

I thought briefly this morning about driving in, since there's a "team-building" knees-up after work at Old Chicago and then the Arcana post-mortem at 6, but I decided to save the parking money for a better purpose and just take the bus in. Met P for coffee; she's in a much better mood after not sleeping in a 19th century brick-sided ice cave, and that's good.

Work's been fairly steady this morning. Aside from spending half an hour blog browsing this morning after I got in and looking up a few things in the LoC online catalog, I've actually been doing what they pay me for here at the EBN. It's a nice change of pace. Later today, linkagery if things slow up. Which they probably will, Friday afternoon being what it is. On the other hand, this is the deadline for uploads, so that exercise in link madness may have to wait until I get home.
