Finally I got around to adding all my e-books and audio books to my Library Thing list. I have a total of 2,020 books of which 594 are ebooks and 417 are audiobooks. The rest (1,009) are physical books. We are not going to discuss how many of them I haven't read yet.  :grin:

Getting them all organized on Library Thing had made me very happy.  :frolic:

It was past time to have everything listed in one place. At least one area of my life is organized.  ;D

I love LibraryThing.  I tried Goodreads for awhile but it just wasn't user friendly (or I was site incompetent).

Goodreads is not as user friendly if you are wanting to get your books cataloged and be able to sort them using various criteria. It is good if all you want to to keep track of what you have read.

So, it seems the military wasn't quite done with me yet. I was just inducted into the National Guard reserves.

Basically just means that I have to go in once or twice a year to practice soldiering for a couple of days. But I like that sort of thing!

Ha, on first reading that, I read it as "soldering on for a few days". I concluded that you were in the electronics corps.

After the cataract op on my right eye a month ago I passed the hospital eye test for driving today. New glasses ordered.
