Tusday Thingers

Missed Tuesday Thingers last week, but am back this week. This week’s Tuesday Thingers prompt:

Last week I asked what was the most popular book in your library- this week I’m going to ask about the most unpopular books you own. Do you have any unique books in your library- books only you have on LT? How many? Did you find cataloging information on your unique books, or did you hand-enter them? Do they fall into a particular category or categories, or are they a mix of different things? Have you ever looked at the “You and none other” feature on your statistics page, which shows books owned by only you and one other user? Ever made an LT friend by seeing what you share with only one other user?

I’ve got 27 titles shared with only one other user — and oddly, it’s the same user in the case of “Star Cops: Little Green Men” and “Rome Insight Travel Map”

For the ones where it’s just me, it’s quite a mix, covering a wide range of categories:

Folio society editions of
Shakespeare’s sonnets
Norse Myths
Morte d’Artur
The Pre-Raphaelites and their world
Sakuntala
— I suspect these are mostly combining failures and I’m not the sole owner on LT

and at this point I’m getting a bit too tired to focus, so I’ll skim…

15 sheet music books

3 gardening books

a DIY book

Appletree yearbook 1996

2 books on writing resumes

14 cookbooks — some of which are obscure, but others surprise me

Manara Tarot — yes, it’s a tarot deck, but it’s got an ISBN, so it’s in the catalogue.

2000 Writer’s Market — that surprises me

The Language of Science — but that doesn’t

Fare Play by Barbara Paul — odd, this, as the other books in the series have several copies

A Chorus of Detectives by Barbara Paul

An Excercise for Madmen by Barbara Paul

Ellery Queen’s Christmas Hamper — hmm, would have thoguht there’d be a few of that one

The Harlot of Jericho by Mike Molloy

all five volumes of DHZ: Rock-forming minerals (and no, they are not for sale)

  1. Sorry I missed this!

    Lol I never thought of adding my yearbooks. I suspect it would be a good way to find real life friends!
