Tuesday Thingers

Today's question: Today's question: LT Things- t-shirts, bags,cue cats- are you into the "stuff"? Do you use a cuecat to enter your books, or do you enter them manually? What do you think of the stuff?

Sad to say, I do not have any LT stuff. A bag would be handy. And I still need to pick up a few Christmas presents....

I enter my books manually. One of the great joys for me in setting up my library on LT in the first place was the opportunity to handle each of my books individually to enter them in the system. It was like a big ol' reuninon, getting reacquainted with old friends.

I do like book-related stuff, though. I love my signed books, my Banned Books bracelet, my bag that says "So Many Books, So Little Time". I have a jewelry box that looks like a a copy of Great Expectations. I have little stuffed characters from Where the Wild Things Are and a stuffed dragon with a pillow and pajamas that comes from a children's book, although I can't remember the title offhand. I have a great collection of bookmarks and I am hoping to add to it and find some lace bookmarks when I visit Belgium this weekend.

In other news, I promise that I will be posting some reviews and getting caught up very soon. Business travel is rough - it sucks up all of your time and makes you a zombie. On top of that, I have a terrible cold that I can't seem to shake (perhaps it's the travel, the lack of sleep, the lousy weather?). That has made me not only a zombie, but a slow-moving zombie, dragging broken limbs behind me. Not any fun at all. It will be good to be back among the living.

Your post reminded me of the children's picture books postage stamps I have too. And my dad has that "Too many books..." t-shirt. Hope you feel better soon.

Sorry to hear you're still sick. I used to have a t-shirt that said, "I cannot live without books" and once when I was wearing it, a man came up to me and said, "My name is books; you can't live without me." I never wore it again.

I hope you are feeling better soon!

I, too, love bookish stuff. :-) I haven't managed to collect any LT stuff yet though. I considered getting the cue cat, but decided against it. Like you, I enjoy entering the books myself.

I hope you feel better! I love that you have a Great Expectations jewelry box.

Lisa - I hope you're feeling better soon! It's especially rotten that you're away from home when you're so sick :(

I don't have any LT "stuff" either. I love all your bookish swag - I've eyed that banned books bracelet, but I haven't bought it yet (hint, hint to my husband!)

I entered all of my books manually as well. I was on a mission to get everything in. I did't add cookbooks and music books though.
