Questions Answered : What is The Book of Joy?

After searching with Yahoo! and Google,

There is A Book of Joy . . .

Once you begin looking, you may be surprised to discover just how much joy your world has to offer. - Thomas Kinkade

There's a post titled "Book Joy". In short, it's something like this.

I don't know what it is, I'm not sure where I get it (probably from my mother), but the desire to organize, catalogue and cross reference seemingly trivial pieces of information is in my blood. I recently confessed that I want to get a Master's of Library Science in archive management. For those of you who have no idea what that means, it would be like locking myself in a bomb shelter full of dusty tomes and spending the rest of eternity organizing them by title, author, date, subject matter... you get the picture. For some people the very idea triggers a claustrophobic seizure. Not me. The smell of musty, forgotten paper is like taking a stroll through a rose garden.

And thus I come to my new web-based passion, LibraryThing.com. This is a new website were you can easily catalogue your entire library and see what other people have in theirs. There are all sorts of cross-referencing and statistical goodies. You can organize your collection by applying personalized tags and the site makes recommendations based on the whole. I just started, so I'm still learning all there is to know. (BTW, you might want to wait until tomorrow to visit the site as a mention in the Wall Street Journal and on BoingBoing today have totally inundated them with hits and they're a mite slow at the moment.)

I have found bliss in cyber form, and it is LibraryThing!

That is very impressive. You would be a cool librarian I'm pretty sure. Some of them can be quite scary. My grandmother was a librarian and she was fantastic though. She still gets excited when talking about organizing books.


But that's not all.

Book Joy is ....

A porn store in Okinawa. =D
