You added the Three Musketeers! Definitely one that made my list.
I do librarything as well (I *think* my profile name is joumanamedlej) but I'm entering books ever so slowly, and starting with my art/ethnography collections. I wish it could be divided in folders – then I'd be less hesitant to stuff it with the rest.

you can organize with the tags. I've been packing books into boxes and use the box number as a tag. Make you own categories/folder with the tags. i found and friended you there.

I know, but the books still all show pêle-mêle in the library listing and it vexes me.
Friended back :)

pêle-mêle

The display of the total list may be pêle-mêle but clicking a tag word does give you a list of just those tagged as such. Sorry. Don't know why i try to convince you LT is so great. OTOH: your use of pêle-mêle is the first time I'd seen those words/phrase written. It is a phrase I recall from my childhood and I have no idea where I heard it from.

cheers.

Re: pêle-mêle

I know how tags work :P And I love LT, so you're preaching to the choir!

Re: pêle-mêle

In English it's usually spelled pell-mell. I've seen/heard it used, albeit much less frequently than in French.

Re: pêle-mêle

not to beat a dead horse, and Tom Wolfe's writing is something of an acquired taste, but found this entertaining when looking to see who uses pell mell where how.
