Oh-oh, new "toy"

So, I'm reading Cate's blog, and she mentioned a great "time suck" website relative to cataloging books. Of COURSE my ears prick up, and I have to go there! I've spent the rest of the afternoon there. It allows you to catalog 200 books for free, or, for the princely fee of $10 a year or $25 for life an unlimited number of books. I've started. JUST in knitting books alone (well okay, I did find one spinning and one art book mixed in there) that when I stopped for the day, I had over 130 books in there! TWO bookcases of the 3 in the fiber room. Life membership here we come!

It looks as if the site may be best visited earlier in the day, as I was kicked off about an hour ago and have not been able to get on since. Says too many users. But, way too much fun. It searches Amazon for the info once you plug in the ISBN number. So you don't have to type in very much info.

The commission sweater is moving along nicely, thank you.

Going to see the Dress Rehearsal of Noel Coward's "Blithe Spirits" tonight. Howard is Tech Director, and I'll sit in the booth with him. That way I can see the performance.

I am SO not going there. I don't want to know how many books I have! Though that might be good for insurance? :)
