Library Thing

Standard

Library Thing is a site that allows me to list and categorize books.

Here are some ways to view them:

Be aware of two things:  One, the tags are not finished yet, and many are where they should not be or are not where they should be.  Two, my ratings are highly subjective, may be based on one tiny facet of the book, and are not intended to persuade or dissuade.  (In other words, make up your own mind, but don’t accuse me of inciting censorship.  I can’t believe I have to say that, but I’ve been accused of censorship for merely stating public dislike of books before.)  Oh, and I guess there’s a third thing, which is that a lot of these books were given to me by various people, and I’ve also undoubtedly got some books unlisted because I loaned them out and forgot about them.

About Mel Baggs

Hufflepuff. Came from the redwoods. Crochet or otherwise create constantly and compulsively. Write poetry and paint when I can. Physically and cognitively disabled. Anything you hear in the media or gossip is likely to be oversimplified at best and wildly inaccurate at worst, the only way to get to know me is to actually know me. I'm not really part of any online faction or another, even ones that claim me as a member. The thing in the world most important to me is having love and compassion for other people, although I don't always measure up to my own standards there by a longshot. And individual specific actions and situations and contexts matter a lot more to me than broadly-spoken abstract words and ideas about a topic. My father died a couple years ago and that has changed my life a lot in ways that are still evolving, but I wear a lot of his clothes and hats every day since he died and have shown no sign of stopping soon.

  1. Thanks.
    I’ve looked through your list once, and will look through it again to get an idea of a good book to have laying around for Ben. It helps when you have limited resources to have someone who can limit your choices!

  2. Anhaga is an old Internet handle of mine (although also used by other people, it’s a relatively common handle).  Not generally on the web but on other parts of the net.  Did you think I went by Ballastexistenz everywhere and forever? :-)

  3. I glanced at the site, think it’s ‘way cool, judging from my cursory first look. Lord knows, I could use something like that with my actual ton or two of books.

    On the Internickname, I never heard of the Anhaga one. I knew you as Sggab the Slug when I was lurking at A.S.A. I think I made one or two posts as Worsel there before Dobey disgusted me away.
