Following up on books

Posted on 27 August 2012 by jose

Six more books since last update, so I'm a bit behind my projected curve. I'm getting Richard Kadrey's latest Sandman Slim tomorrow, and I've just started a book I acquired from my college roommate, but I've also got a nice list of books (and comics/graphic novels) I've culled from wandering through bookstores and pillaging my Wishlist that I hope to acquire from the library.

Oktoberfest Media

Over at The Quagmire, Eric writes that he's picked up, among other things, a new Terry Pratchett book. As it turns out, I picked up Pratchett's sequel to Going Postal earlier today after I enjoyed a delicious Sandrine's creme brulee at their booth in Harvard Square, which was turned into a mini-fair to celebrate Oktoberfest.

Playing around with Shelfari

In theory, this should drop a bookcase view of some of the books on my shelf:

ETA: It doesn't really work. I'd have to debug the Shelfari table CSS, which, lame. Instead, I'll use the text Shelfari widget, which also has the cool paging feature. At this point, though, I've got 215 books listed, so paging may take a while.
