New Time Waster on the Web

Okay. I have a MySpace space. I've never really been able to figure out what to do with it. But some kind friend sent me an invitation to a NEW thing where I fit RIGHT in. It's called SHELFARI. I guess as a sorta pun on Safari--I dunno. But it's a place where you can list the books you've read, state your opinions on them, and find other people who like to read the same kinds of things you like. And make friends with them. And stuff. It's GREAT!

Yeah, of course I'm there. Or here, as the case may be. I've found another place to put up the books I list on my private "personal reading log." I share my "reviewlets" with the loop at Romance Readers Anonymous, and now I'm putting them up at Shelfari. So far, I'm only doing the books I've read this year, because I'm working like mad to get the books in the ABR boxes into my log before I move this weekend. So I can know which ones go to the library and stuff. So I do my 10 books at a whack, e-mail the list to the RR-A loop, then head to Shelfari to stick them all on my Shelf, then go back and paste in the reviewlets. It's been lots of fun. I've found friends--I mean, friends I know in "real life," there and waved frantically at them. (Oh! Yvonne "friended" me! Yay!)

So, yeah. I'm not writing. I'm trying to pack (put all the "essential" family pictures in a box this a.m. along with the essential cookbooks and the research books--and then actually managed to carry it out to the garage). Trying to keep things neat-ish. The real estate agent and a MLS guy came by today to measure everything. I'd been told they would come take pictures--I took some pictures last night, not including my still messy office--and copied them onto a CD, which I gave the agent. And they didn't take any more pictures, so I guess they'll use the ones I took. Hope somebody buys this house soon. It's only 2 bedrooms, for all the size it has, so it may take a while.

So Shelfari is giving me something else to obsess about (aka waste time on) till I have to go pick the fella up at the airport on Thursday. I'll go into town early and watch a movie, or something... ;)

Any good books you could recommend me?

Also, have you seen the blog widget?

Hey, the cover of Eternal Rose in your profile looks different than the one on Amazon. Which one's the real one?

I'm looking forward to the new book, Gail. I've already ordered it on Amazon -- can't wait! Good luck with your move!

MySpace confuses the heck out of me. I tried to use it but was totally confused. I gave up.
