My heart became hot within me. As I mused, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: "O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am!"

Yesterday, I was turned on to librarything.com. From everything I can tell, it is one of those rare, excellent uses of the internet - it catalogues, with relative ease, your library. Then, it makes your library "taggable" and searchable according to the tags you put on each book.

For an example, here's my library (so far - I have several books to add). The cost is free, up to 200 books. After that, it's a $10 flat-fee for a lifetime membership. For a while now my wife has been encouraging me to keep some sort of record of my library. This seems like a good place to start.

Also - if you scroll down this blog, on the right hand side, you'll see some random selections from my library, with links to both librarything and amazon.com. Pretty neat, huh? Huh?

Jared,

It's also a great way to keep track of books you lend out and a record in case of fire or theft. I'm definitely going to use this!

Jared,

I saw a book on your BLOG link that looked intriguing. Have you read A Religious History of the American People by
Sydney E.Ahlstrom? If so, what was your impression? Would you recommend for others to read it?
