I’ve been recently contemplating another ill-advised project. That is, reconstituting my online book database. I have my old LibraryThing account but it’s been so long since I updated and there’s the limit to the books you can encode.
I’m thinking either Goodreads or Shelfari, but I’m leaning towards Goodreads because the interface is a lot less fussy looking. Other things that are bothering me include whether I should rebuild the booklist from the beginning or start anew. Or if I should limit to the books I own and not the ones I’ve borrowed from people or from the library.
I guess I’m way behind in literary news myself, since I was all excited to tell you the totally up-to-date and breaking news that Mario Vargas Lllosa won the Nobel Prize for Literature. : ( Still, NPR’s Pop Culture blog made a brief article about Vargas Llosa’s victory, which you should read.
But the reason for making this post is to list the 30 Days of Books meme I’ve decided to do to make this blog much more productive. It’ll at least ensure a post from me everyday, and that’s always a good thing. I’m going to answer the first one today on a separate post, so watch out for that!
Day 01 – A book series you wish had gone on longer OR a book series you wish would just freaking end already (or both!)
Day 02 – A book or series you wish more people were reading and talking about
Day 03 – The best book you’ve read in the last 12 months
