Day 3's pile is fiction (Day 2's was history; Day 1's was knitting).


I got tired of carrying my books to the kitchen counter, so I photographed them on the shelf today.

Bookpile for LibraryThing downtime contest.

Well, it's a pile of books, shot for Librarything's bookpile contest. Eh? Too literal, you say?

A small Douglas Adams-themed bookpile for downtime. I did NOT want to include So long, and thanks for all the fish! ;-)


Last chance to see?? No, DON'T PANIC - but we Wish you were here!


(I hope the links are correct, it's not so easy to check them while LT is down! :-p )

Entry for the LibraryThing down page contest.


Not real happy with the quality I was able to acheive here, but at least it was fun to do :-)

pensieri notturni su quel che vorremmo leggere

Posted for the LibraryThing Outage Bookpile Contest.


I was at work when I noticed the outage, so I grabbed books from a few shelves close by. Everyone else seems to have gone with clever thematic selections, so consider this my straight-down-the-line tribute to the sysadmins who get stuck with fixing things when stuff breaks.


Check out the other entries.

For Library Thing. All the books I was going to input tonight.

This is what happens when you spend too much time surrounded by other biologists away from normal civilzation and Librarything goes down.

LibraryThing is down, and now, the books are falling down too!

My entry in the "Library Thing is Down Bookstack" Contest!

I know they're working on it, but I'm going nuts waiting on them to get it back up and running.

I can't seem to focus, LT is down. It should be back at peak performance soon . . .

My bookpile for Librarything.

The Rundown (actually, the RunUP):

Wrecked, Reason, Reported, Reactions, Responding, Riddles, Realization, Rummaging, Rigging, Reliable, Road to Recovery, Restoration, Retrieval, Return, Readable, Repaired, Result

Things to do while LT is down....


LibraryThing went down today. They're having a contest. This is my entry.

Take it from the top and I'll explain why I'm not happy....

LibraryThing is down at the moment, and this is a pile of books that reflects that. We're not that worried, because we know that the data is well backed up, so it's not 'Gone with the wind', but nonetheless, we're still sending Cosmic Love Vibes to the staff because it's (K)Not Work(ing).


When it is though, it'll be a case that if You're OK, then I'm OK. So - Never Surrender, because that would be the Ultimate Insult to your fans. But we're not worried, because we know you'll give us The Last Full Measure of your devotion, but we'd best check with a Brief History of Time because without LibraryThing every minute seems like an hour.


Oh yes, and 'How to use Web 2.0 in your library' is there because LibraryThing is a classic Web 2.0 resource, and it's my book, and I'd quite like the publicity!

Let's get to the bottom of this . . .

What to do on a hot, sunny day when Library Thing goes down? -- move the bookpile to a shady nook in the garden.


As before, the pile summarizes feelings when LT went down (Shock, Wicked Day, etc.), plus the bleak feeling for us addicts while it was down (A World Lit Only By Fire, Lost Horizon), and near the bottom some help (Worst-Case Senario Survival Handbook, etc.). (White Death symbolizes the system status messages)

- Geophile

All are Harry Potter & the Sourcerers Stone but only one is in English! The bottom book is the US version, the balance were brought to me by friends having adventures around the world - China, Korea, Greece, Estonia, Germany, France, Sweden!

A pile reflecting the ideas of repair and restoration, with the hopes of LT's members on the side.

These books are all about one hundred years old... they are my favorite part of my entire apartment.

I just came home from the used book store with this pile and LT was down :(

I figured, what the heck, I'll enter a couple of pictures into the book pile contest on LT. I certainly don't expect to win or anything, but it was fun to try and come up with a couple of themed piles of books. This one is searching/questioning with a side order of hope.

Oh! Oh! Library Thing is down. While we wait, join me in the Twentieth Plane on my bookpile.

What If? The World's Foremost Military Historians Imagine What Might Have Been


Of Love and Other Demons (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)


The Rough Guide to Greece


Small Wonder (Barbara Kingsolver)


City of God (Paulo Lins)


The Cold War (Martin Walker)


Jigs & Reels (Joanne Harris)


The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, & Henry Lincoln)

Even if you know why, life is bleak when LT's down.

When your favourite site in the world ( goes down, what can you do but buy a new bookshelf, and rearrange all of your books?

LT is down... and all I can do is take pictures.

Some books that I hope aren't being used to fix LT.
