LibraryThing  

Monday, September 3, 2007

I must have been the last person on Earth who still didn't have a shelf yet! Now thanks to my friend Alex, I'm not an outcast anymore, lol!
I've decided to add all my jewelry making books (and possibly magazines) to my LT shelf, so I have an easy overview of what all books I have at home. I tend to buy a lot of these types of books and I really want to avoid buying duplicates!
For all other types of books I still have my Bookcrossing shelf. Those books, however, have a BCID sticker or a number written on the first page for tracking purposes, and I don't really want to mark the jewelry books. Hence the LT way of categorizing them.
I've added a small widget on the right-handside of my blog, below my Etsy shop, with random pictures of books I have on my shelf. I've only started adding books, so it's still a relatively small library :)
Also as per Alex's idea, this gives you a glimpse into what types of books I'm using for reference when learning to make jewelry, such as beading, chainmail or wire wrapping.

    You got "passing the flame" - I am green with envy! Must be a wonderful book!
    Go on publishing your books, maybe we can review some sometimes...

    Hey! I recognise some of those books in your library! :)

    I finally came back to your blog - after having a hard drive crash... Congrats on the etsy shop. You're doing great stuff so far! :)
