La mia biblioteca
My library cataloguing used to be split between paper books I own (LibraryThing) and ebooks I have/paper or ebooks on my wishlist (GoodReads). I got good and sick of GoodReads, which privately I call BadReads, for numerous reasons, and I've started cataloguing some of my ebooks here, but I'm not at all systematic about it (not that I was at GoodReads, either, but I think at least I had most of my Kindle books accounted for....)

I am really sort of at a loss about cataloguing ebooks. But all my hard copy books are listed here.

I'm on Litsy! It seems to have imported most of my Goodreads library ("Skipped 7,198"??).
Informazione su di me
"....one of those long, romantic novels, six hundred and fifty pages of small print, translated from French or German or Hungarian or something -- because few of the English ones have the exact feeling I mean. And you read one page of it or even one phrase of it, and then you gobble up all the rest and go about in a dream for weeks afterwards, for months afterwards -- perhaps all your life, who knows? -- surrounded by those six hundred and fifty pages, the houses, the streets, the snow, the river, the roses, the girls, the sun, the ladies' dresses and the gentlemen's voices, the old, wicked, hard-hearted women and the old, sad women, the waltz music -- everything. What is not there you put in afterwards, for it is alive, this book, and it grows in your head. 'The house I was living in when I read that book,' you think, or 'This colour reminds me of that book.'"
