Cataloging with LibraryThing

So now that I have access again to my entire personal library, I have begun to catalog all of my books with LibraryThing. It is taking a while because I have quite a large number of books.

I still have about half of my library left to catalog and already have 73 items cataloged (not including the foreign books, of course).
