Check out my new widget in the siderbar. lol (I shall just add here that these aren't my favourite books they are the ones I've finished reading recently. But being technically illiterate I have no idea how to change it).

I have now finished getting my TBR pile up onto Goodreads and currently it stands at 185. (This is probably minus a few books that I have somehow missed). Kinda interesting, I thought it was larger than that, though having nearly two hundred unread books in the house probably suggests that I should leave off the buying of new books for a while - if only that were possible. :)

I shall add here that I also sorted out a load of books to go whilst I was doing this. So at least I now have a little bookshelf space free.

I've just been catching up with a few blogs and can empathise with Kris over at Kris 'n' Good Books. Who has also just gone through the process of uploading books and been blogging about it too.

I have not as yet uploaded all my 'read' books. I think that's a process that's going to take a while, putting a few books up a day.

There are TONS of ebooks that I don't have listed on my TBR on Goodreads. It's just too overwhelming. There are some but mostly those are print books - oy!

Good job!

I use Shelfari and see that so many bloggers use GoodReads. But as you already figured out, it takes a lot of time to upload and tag all your books. The thought of converting it all over is quite daunting. I do like your widget--it's the perfect size for a sidebar.

Tracy - yeah, I think I'll be leaving the e-books off for the time being. My print book collection is going to take a while to get completely on there.

Christine - Thanks. The first one I put up didn't fit. And I would hate to have to upload everything again. I love the fact that I've now got a separate record of all my books.

Why are we doing this to ourselves, Lesley?? Just tell me why. *sobbing*

Kris - lol. I guess it's going to be an ongoing job from now. :)
