Okay, I admit it. I’m not even a third of the way down listing my books on librarything.com and I admit I’m addicted to the damn thing. I’m currently at 825 books and having way to much fun. They have a thing called legacy libraries that are the libraries of 207 famous readers and it’s fascinating to go and see who you have books in common with. So far I have books in common with several neat libraries, like James Boswell and the International Space Station. One intrigues me a lot. Jackie Gleason had a copy of Positive Magic. That was the first magical book assigned for me to read by my first HP back before even the Spiral Dance was published. It was the only beginning book at the time. So why did Jackie Gleason have it in his library.

Doubt is I’m ever going to catch up with tagging all my library. Too many to enter still.

I have 2 medals so far for filling in Common Knowledge like the sexes of authors and whether they are still alive. Since I know some of these authors personally it isn’t too hard to do. Had fun filling my own author information in too.

If I ever get to the point where I start adding the stuff I’ve read but don’t own, it will put my numbers well into the thousands.

I love the fact that you can find out how rare the books in your library are. The lower the number the rarer the library. So far I’ve kept it well in the 200′s thanks to all the pagan and old Scottish books I have. Not one for best sellers unless an author I’m fond of becomes one after I’ve started reading them which happens with a lot of sci-fi and fantasy authors.

Fun!

This flame is for Beth, nanocub’s sister, she’s very sick and needs all the healing she can get

Every day and every night that I say the geneology of Brighid
I shall not be killed
I shall not be harmed
I shall not be put into a cell
I shall not be wounded

No fire, no sun, no moon shall burn me
No lake, no water, no sea shall drown me.

For I am the child of Poetry,
Poetry, child of Reflection,
Reflection, child of Meditation,
Meditation, child of Lore,
Lore, child of Research,
Research, child of Great Knowledge,
Great Knowledge, child of Intelligence,
Intelligence, child of Comprehension,
Comprehension, child of Wisdom,
Wisdom, child of Brighid.

May my words be as considered as poetry,
May I reflect on all I do or say,
May I meditate on those things important spiritually
May I seek to know more of the lore
May I research what I am curious about and what will enable me to grow
May I seek to know great knowledge,
May I acknowledge the intelligence of others
May I comprehend what I seek to learn and apply those lessons
May I know that seeking wisdom is not the same as being wise.
May I be a child of Brighid.

SelfBlessing is by me

Brighid, bean-oirdheirc
Lasrach grad
Fetaim lasrach soillse
Thoir cuireadh sinne
ris a’ bheatha
mhaireannach`

Brighid, Sublime Woman
Quick flame
Long may you burn bright!
You give us the invitation
to life everlasting
