    I have been updating mine today. It was a little out of date, especially I did not even realize I had an account.

    Yea I'm going to do some proper updating tonight, when I can go home and use the cell phone app to just scan bar codes. Should be a lot easier than trying to look up each book individually and get the proper edition chosen.

    That problem has only happened to me a few times.Most of the time the right book shows up. I even found the right cover for a pb of a Grahm Masterton book that was a lot older.

    Same here. Went through and rated a bunch of books that I hadn't done before.

    I've accepted everyone so far from here, with more to be added I am sure.

    Yea I tried adding some stuff to the "owned" books earlier before posting the link and had an awful time with the books I was looking at. It doesn't help that there are like 12 different version of The Sword of Shannara. It should be a lot easier with some of my other stuff. I gave the cell phone, bar code scanner a test run here at the office, and it works perfectly though. So that's good.

    There were a few CD titles I haven't been able to find. Pure, and one of Brian's SK Trivia books are a few examples I can think of right now.

    Was it the one that has not been released yet ? If there is not an arc of the book out they do not come up some of the time.

    Yea you probably won't find Pure yet, and you may only be able to find the original SK Trivia book. They probably don't show up until we have entered them in the books in print database.

    That makes sense, but I think the arcs are available.

    They are for the SK Trivia ones, but not Pure. Though I have no idea if they have been entered into the books in print database, as that's not something I'm involved with.

    Well I've added all my stuff that had bar codes and some that didn't. I'll have to come back through and get the rest of it as well as my comics, but the comics are going to take awhile as I'll have to look them up individually. I'll also need to go through my kindle library and add some stuff from there. I think I've probably already added most of it, but I'm sure I'm missing a few.

    I'm over at Goodreads. Been there since 2009 but hardly have any of my books listed. I'm going to try and fix that this year.

    this is me by the way: http://www.goodreads.com/Peteocha

    And Squire, I've decided to change my goal of 80 books read in 2013 to 100 like yours. It'll be more fun this way.

    Just friend requested you Pete.

    Yes, my goal of 20 may seem low, but..... I don't get as much reading time as I'd like. May boost it as the year progresses. Set goals low, aim high!

    That's okay. My goal of 100 seems high...ly optimistic. We'll see.

    Example - I just started The Bourne Identity last Wednesday - 164/599 into it, after my lunch break reading today. If I can get to 20 or so pages at lunch, and another 20 or in the evening, that roughly works out to 2 weeks for 600 pg paperback. Is that good......I don't know. Good for me, unless I really get into one that I can't put down, or can keep my eyes open.

    I'm looking at the books I'd like to get through this year and I think "100 probably aint happening."
