It’s not like I don’t have enough to do, but… I’ve decided to build a virtual bookshelf to display all the books that I’ve ever mentioned here on Multo. The project has started, as you can see if you follow the link above. It will take a while before I get the shelf completely populated, but I think it’s already looking quite good.

The Library of Babble, in progress.

The idea is that I’ve been blogging for a long time, and the book mentions are scattered haphazardly throughout the years. This bookshelf page will be a sort of library, where you can browse Multo’s collection of books, pick them up (click on them) and “read the back covers,” so to speak. Each book description includes links to the original Multo post(s).

It’s been interesting going back to find all the relevant posts; I’ve forgotten about a few of the books I mentioned! And I’m inspired to re-read a few of them, which won’t make the pile of books that are already on my To-Read stack too happy. It’s also been thought-provoking to see my tastes, moods, and writing style change over the years. Overall, an interesting exercise.

Eventually, I want to organize the shelf by book category, rather than year, which might be slightly more useful. I expect a lot of people will take issue with my idiosyncratic classification scheme, but hey—it means something, to me.

Feel free to save the link and revisit once in a while. I’ll try to post periodic updates here, as well.

  1. An interesting development. Good luck with it. I hope you run out of books before you run out of energy! You can always get more of the former. The latter? Not so much.🤞
