Tuesday Thingers: Legacy Libraries

ttThis week’s question: Legacy libraries. With which legacy libraries do you share books? Tell us a little about a couple of them and what you share.

If I’m counting correctly, always a dubious thing with me, I share books with 38 of the legacy libraries listed. That seems quite a lot more than the last time I checked, so they must be adding many more libraries. Makes sense because some are complete. Anyway, that statistic in mind, the person I share the most with by a fairly large amount is Ernest Hemingway. We have 52 books in common. With that sort of reading taste, how did he manage to put out such boring literature?

Okay, I can’t legitimately say that, having read only The Old Man and the Sea nine or so years ago. But I know I didn’t like it, so haven’t bothered to read anything else. I don’t think our similar taste in literature will compel me to read more, either, although I like him more for his Russian literature and his Edith Wharton.


Just a reminder for anyone who doesn’t frequent my blog – I’ve got two giveaways on, one for Paul of Dune and one for The Heretic Queen. Stop by and enter if you’re interested!  I don’t have many entries so far, so your chances are high.
