A Little Behind

Used to be, I'd almost always be waiting around for the best new releases from my tried and true authors. I had my autobuys: La Nora, Kleypas, Krentz, Balogh, Christina Dodd, Stephanie Laurens. Another half a dozen "B" stringers that I'd *usually* buy but didn't track as close.

Since starting this blog and falling in with this disreputable crew of book pimps, it's like I turned on a firehose. I can't keep up. My list of favorite authors is at least fifty long and just when I think I'm caught up, I realize I've forgotten about 3 or 4 of my regulars. I mean, it was close to two weeks after Covet's release that I posted the review. A good three weeks for Demon Forged (I'm so ashamed...). And I let almost a week go by before I even acquired Blaze of Memory. WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME???

I have stuck my toe into a whole bunch of series and completely lost track of what I have and what I don't have. I've acquired bits and pieces of series by Alexis Morgan, Ilona Andrews, Kelley Armstrong, Vicky Petterson, Karen Marie Moning and others.... and all of them are in Nicola-Reading-Limbo because I am missing parts of the series.

This is really more for me than for you, dear reader, so that I can fire up the iPhone and have a place to go while I'm staring at the shelves at the bookstore, wondering which ones I need and which ones I have. And it doesn't even touch any of my favorite historical and contemp authors! That will have to be a post for another day.

OK, so here's my got-it/need-it list:

**Update 11/29/09: Wow, this really worked. I hit my favorite used bookstores yesterday and plugged up a lot of these gaps, without any accidental duplications. What are the odds that the 3 Alexis Morgan books I saw were the exact 3 that I already own?**

I do this silly thing of exporting my librarything then importing it into a database on my ancient Palm Tungsten E2. I import the author, title, and my tags (which included "owned" and "not mine"). If I'm going book shopping, I make sure my Palm is updated. I suppose if I was willing to pay for a data plan, I'd just access my librarything from the bookstore...
