Library Thing and book finds

My friend Allan came upon the site called Library Thing. It allows you to list down your books (at least the first 200 for free) on-line and enables you to search for people with the same book. As Allan described it "friendster" for bibliophiles.

It uses the US Library of Congress, Other Public Libraries and databases. I was just able to put in around ten or so books. Something to do during the lull time at work.

Also, before the year ends and the 13th month pay is used up I would suggest you drop by NBS Superbranch at Cubao. The previously-owned book section is still open and there are still some interesting finds. I was able to get the anniversary edition of Kenneth Grahame's book "The Wind in the Willows" at a very good price, imagine a coffee table book sold at the price of a paperback. It still worth going back to old haunts from time to time.
