Good Reads

Well, I was going to link the Good Reads website here and see who wants to join me, but the website's nowhere to be found now. Oh well, more on this later. At least I still have Librarything. As soon as I can afford it, I'm getting a lifetime membership. Then you'll see just how big my library is.

I feel like a guy bragging in a bar. Your "library"? Oh yeah. *wink, wink*

EDIT: Looks like Good Reads is back up. I'm not exactly sure how it works yet, but will report back. It sounds pretty cool.

I have been guilty of boasting about the size of my library here: http://fairyhedgehog.blogspot.com/2008/03/room-of-my-own.html
Should I hang my head in shame?

Actually, although I have many books, most of them are by people like Terry Pratchett, or Tanya Huff, or Ian Rankin, or even Sue Grafton. I don't do highbrow. It means that my "library" looks more impressive than it is.

Do you want to come up and see my paperbacks, darlin'? *nudge, nudge*

Holy bookmobile! You have a huge library, FHH! No hanging your head in shame. That's a library to be proud of.

I don't really distinguish between highbrow and lowbrow. It's like distinguishing between a studio film and an independent film based on the budget. Good is good.

And Terry Pratchett is considered something of a cult classic on our side of the pond. So he's rather highbrow, I think. Or at least cool.

Someday I'm comin' to England. Yowza!

You must come to England some time. We can offer you rain, tea and a reserved British welcome.

No, seriously, I'm only a 40 minute train journey from London's South Bank, where you've got the Tate Modern Gallery and Festival Hall. A short walk takes you to Covent Garden where there's a covered market, free street theatre and the Royal Opera House. (If you want to see an opera, let us know well in advance!)

It doesn't rain every single day. And we're not as reserved as we used to be. How can you resist?

I would definitely like to see opera! Haven't seen it live here in Chicago yet, as tickets are expensive.

The free street theatre sounds fun, too. I've never had a proper English cup of tea, either. Much to look forward to.
