August 2012: I haven't been in here for a long, long time. But I'm very happy to see that Bookshelved is still running. I was always very fond of this place.
I was experimenting cataloging my collection on my Wiki:PalmPilot
"Pocket Library" (causticmango.com); however, I'm not using a PDA any more, so that's fallen through. On the other hand, I've just signed up to LibraryThing.com. With the aid of a ":CueCat" barcode scanner, I'm starting to catalog my collection.
Books marked BM I got through BookMooch (see GiveAndTake).

Somewhere I have a heap of various works by [Apollonius of Rhodes]?, Aristophanes?, Cicero?, Homer?, Horace?, Lucian?, Lucretius?, [Marcus Aurelius]?, Plato? and Terence? that I really want to read, but I find them a bit heavy, so I'm saving them for a rainy day, or some time when I can read them very slowly in a quiet environment without being distracted.
Some UnfinishedTales too.
Welcome Earle, glad to see another Perl hacker!
Thanks, Dave, I'm glad to be here.
I just want to let you know that I love CookingWithChocolateAndCoffee. ThankYou? --AalbertTorsius
