Like crack for OCD

Library Thing.

It took me three weeks to toggle in my SF book catalog. I felt like one of Skinner's pigeons: for a bibliophile, it's like direct electrical stimulation of the brain. "I'll just load in another hundred books."

...and then suddenly it's morning.

Just my SF makes my collection the 15th largest on Library Thing. I really am a Great Big Geek.

#15, out of 60,000 users. 6,000+ books. (I'm too embarrassed to list ALL of my SF: there's a box of ST books I don't want people to know that I own.)

It will be a lot slower to load in my non-genre books, which aren't obsessively cataloged, and so will each need to be handled individually. Then there are Comrade Wife's books...
