Books books everywhere
and all of them half-read.
I have finished cataloging the library, with the exception of textbooks, which I don't see the point in adding (although the dividing line between textbook and not is sometimes fuzzy), and various stragglers that haven't made their way from the first floor to the second. The grand total is just over 700, and I have to admit I'm disappointed because it sure looked like more than that to me. I guess it's time to visit half.com again. I've also mostly finished rearranging the library into a study room. After spending some time in the lab office today, I'm not sure how much space I'll need here for my bio books, since I expect to keep most of them there. I'm probably going to get a short bookcase so I don't feel claustrophobic at my desk, and put Jazzy's chair in front of the closet door because there's just nowhere else for it.
I finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix yesterday, and although it was roughly 5,683 pages long, I wished there was more. I keep finding myself being disappointed that I had to go to boring old Rockford public schools instead of Hogwart's, before remembering, oh yeah, fiction, right. I may be forced to dig up some fanfic now, to feed my addiction. It's a long drought before the next book comes out, in paperback no less. Luckily, the GoF movie will be out before then. Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort. Mmmmmmm, the best kind of evil.
