The Library, Thus Far

Pleased to note that, after a few months of spare time (ha!) cataloging, I entered my 2000th book on my LibraryThing listings today. Happy to note that I happened to be cataloging Mr. Nabokov at the time. Only two and a half large bookshelves in my library to a smaller bookshelf crammed with Modern Library editions and Penguin poetry some books in the some of the better editions of children's books in my son's room...and then I can move on to the 30 odd bankers boxes in the garage....

Ok, so I really have a long way to go....

I also read Reading Judas by Elaine Pagels and Karen King this week. Hopefully, I will write up some notes on this in the next several days.

Alberto Gonzalez

Long overdue. Ignore the "American Dream" crap - the man used the United States Constitution as toilet paper and has helped make this country reviled around the globe while chipping away at our civil rights. Like his boss, he is an arrogant bastard with no redeeming qualities.

Good riddance.
