Well Crazy Dusty has done it again,Book Concierge from my Boknabbers group put me on to a rather odd group
.Its called Going to the Library,and the admin just wants to put the word Library in among the Top 200 Tags on Shelfari.Very odd ambition,she just appreciates libraries lol.Already the word has appeared in very tiny print.Well,by time I add my 2700 books that I have borrowed from the Library,it should be in big print.I only know 3 of the members,lots of people have only a few books on their shelves,and yet others have 1000s,and we have only a handful in common lol. I love adding books to shelves,and that is all I could do this week,when only my cursor works,but not the letters or space bar! Grrr.I can see everything,and do nothing except add books.Rooted out nearly 70 new books to add to my shelf! :0)
Perhaps I should explain that last sentence.I am in the process of adding all my books to Goodreads.Like all their info,hate their format for discussions,shelfari is a million times better.I am only adding books there because I live in fear that one day shelfari will implode with its technical problems,and all my 2700 book shelf would be lost.I also go on Goodreads just for one former shelfari friend who left us,and I do a weekly chat with her to keep in touch.I am checking out authors on my shelfari shelf,crossing over to GR and checking and clicking on their list for that author.I keep finding that I had forgotten or missed out on perhaps one book per author,but after a couple of sessions I counted 65 books to add to my shelfari shelf!What happened I think when I frist joined shelfari,I would go to a shelf of a major group,and go along just clicking books I had read.Obviously,those shelves didnt have all the books I had read for certain authors,so I am now filling gaps.My shelf is growing again! :)
I do all that sort of thing on a Sunday.I am free for almost 5 hours then,and sadly most of the shelfari members are still in bed,or going out for sunday enjoyment,and there is literally no-one to talk to.So thats when I edit,add books,surf friends shelves etc,and I thoroughly enjoy that,but its a bit lonely.when I am coming off at 7 pm,it is only midday or 2pm in the US,and I have gone to bed before most of you start chatting.I am sure Nancy must find the same thing.
