In the autumn of ’02 I sold or gave away almost all of my 1,000 plus books. I miss very few of them (I did miss frequent re-readings of tens of Philip K Dick sci-fi novels, every reading revealing to me more repeated patterns and arcs of plot and character, but I got over it) and treasure what I have left.

I rediscovered LibraryThing this morning and tomorrow, when I have to wait in for a plumber who will definitely be here “between 8.30 and 4” without fail I will immerse myself in listing my books.

Another fine example of Web 2.0 culture.
