Tuesday Thingers



Question: Do you visit the memes section often? Have you visited recently? Have you discovered anything that surprises you when you visit the memes for your library?

I have never visited the memes section on Library Thing, I did not even know it existed! I did check it out today & it is interesting. Some things I found out about my library...I share no books with just one other person. 98.39% of my authors are alive. 66 of my authors are female, 27 are male, SO 29.03% of my authors are male. I do not have any work duplicates.

Nothing really surprised me about the information. I do enjoy contemporary literature more than the classics. I didn't realize I enjoyed female authors so much more than male, but it makes sense. I will have to work on appreciating male authors a little bit more!!!

I must be getting really tired because my mind went straight to the gutter on this one! LOL! :)

:) My male/female breakdown is very similar to yours, so I guess I'll be working on that too!

Thanks for stopping by and participating in Thingers last week! I've got the post up for this week, we're taking a look at our favorite books. ~ Wendi
