My Cataloging Project is Done (For Now…)

7 08 2007

Over the weekend, I finished cataloging the books in the house. I took a few shortcuts. Our 1910 Encyclopedia Britannica is just a single entry in the catalog, even though it’s 29 volumes. I took a couple of other multi-volume shortcuts on the reference books. There are also some books, like travel guides, that I didn’t bother to catalog. We also didn’t get all of Alex’s books. I’m not sure I got all of the books without ISBNs.

Even so, here are the fun statistics about our library:

  • I have 773 books in the catalog.
  • For 13 of the books I own, exactly one other person on LibraryThing had that book.
  • I categorized 131 books as “literature,” 65 as “cooking”, and 42 as “poetry.”

You can see all of the book reviews I’ve entered here:
