Busy Busy

My wife and I continue to go through our books and add them to We now have over 1k books listed (but we can see the end in site). I recently started going through my own list and labeled some of the series I have collected. I also started keeping a list of the books I am currently reading as a label.

On another front, my wife and I are expecting our first child to be born towards the end of Sept. So far the doctors believe it is a girl. With the abundance of pink things we have been getting we are hoping that this turns out to be true (we had some other friends that had a baby boy a few years ago despite the fact that the OB told them the entire pregnancy that they were going to have a girl). I spent all of yesterday on the road driving to NY to get a crib and a few other things we purchased on ebay. The trip turned out fine but I was exhausted by the end of the day.

Books! Books and more books!

My wife and I spent most of this past weekend moving our book collection from our guestroom/library down to our basement. This should give us the needed space to move her office from where it is currently located so we can turn that room into a nursery. While doing the moving we have been setting up an online database of all of the books we own on which can be found here and here. We were both surprised to find how many books we had stuffed into only 3 bookcases and several boxes. We still have one more large bookcase and another smaller one to go before we are done and we already have over 800+ books listed.

First post!

I finally decided that I should go ahead and create a blog here rather than on my own site. I had at one point decided to convert my homepage into a blog but I never really found time to do so (not to mention the tools here make things dead simple).

I expect posts here will probably be pretty infrequent.
