Just finished it... took me a bit longer than I wanted...but I had gaming tonight and I took a nap...and I was cleaning when the mailman dropped it off...so I had to wait.

I liked it.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open it to page 161.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

Just a glimpse. (Assuming we don't count partial sentences from the prior page)

I didn't catch sight of either of them, although I saw the projector in one. (assuming  the other way)

I have been working on cataloging my books.

Found some nice software to make it easier.

I was eight books away from completion when I deleted something I shouldn't have (Author's name..(I thought I was deleting OTHER credits))

I figure ..no problem The program automatically backs up my file.

Well yeah.. EVERY TIME you  make a change it writes the file twice...

Oh well...at least all I have to do is put the right author with the right title...at least all the Author names are still there.

And the version I exported to my palm  is still intact..(different format different program) It doesn't have the 100 or so books I did today...but I can use it while I reconstruct the Authors, and then go back to the actual books to finish up...looks like a few more days work.
