I'm sharing two very intimate things with you tonight. Don't be shocked and I hope you'll still like me after you see them.
Look right, in the sidebar just below my blogroll. You'll see two new buttons. You may click them but only if you promise to be gentle with me.
I found a wonderful site tonight courtesy of Kristin at go, go, bimbo! It's called LibraryThing. It's down right now and thank God for that or I'd be working twelve hours tomorrow on zero sleep! It's wonderful! I didn't have time to play around with it more fully anyway because I wasted so much time entering books into my library. I indulged my OCD to the extent of tracking down the edition of the book when I first read it! Ahhhhh, I feel better now! It seems to be like a Technorati for books and book people, I guess, with a little MySpace thrown in.
It has a great search engine for compiling your library. You can tag your books. I'm just starting to get the hang of tagging. I think it has a way to chat. You can access other people's libraries and get recommendations for books similar to yours. I bet there are forums as well but I don't recall.
Like books? Check it out!
The other sliver of myself I'm sharing with you is my Amazon.com Wish List. See the little gift? Ain't it cute? I'm not expecting anyone to actually buy me anything from it though Christmas is coming, Mike and Jen! Really, it's just to give you an idea about the things I'm planning on getting in the future. Don't bother. Really. Unless, of course, you're related to me.
Remember the ground rules...no audible or legible sneering at this little peek into the psyche of Cheryl's formative years and ongoing reformation.
Work in progress, remember?
