productivity? what productivity?

slovobooks has *completely* ruined my productivity by introducing me to LibraryThing. I managed to rein myself in after adding only about a hundred books, and the perfectionist in me is not at all happy with half of them, because they've got things like bad capitalization (Storm Front, for example, is in as Storm front) and a bunch of them are paperback editions where I have hardback, and I can't remember what cover I've got for a lot of the older stuff, and I can't make it give me the right cover for, say, pameladean's older editions of the Secret Country books, and...

*Doom*. This is *doom*. slovobooks should be ashamed of himself.

Worse, all the shiny new covers for re-releases make me want to go out and buy new editions of the books! Do other people have this problem? And I can't remember lots of what we got rid of and what we kept when we moved, and augh! It's just awful! And now if I *don't* have these books I have to get them again! And...and...augh!

I am going back to work now. LibraryThing's evil seductive ways will no longer tempt me. I have a chapter to finish, gorrammit.

(One chapter today. Two every day for the rest of the week. I Will Prevail.)
