Tuesday Thingers is hosted by Wendi of Wendi's Book Corner. This week, she has another interesting topic for the group:
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?
First of all, Happy Saint Paddy's Day, everyone! I'm not Irish and at the moment I'm not wearing a single bit of green (shame on me!), but my hubby is part Irish (the worst part, he says), so I guess that makes me sort of adopted Irish.
OK, now for the question. And the short answer would be "no." I think the only other time I've looked at the meme section at LibraryThing was when we had another Tuesday Thingers question about it, many, many months ago. So I haven't visited it lately – not until today. And the most interesting thing I found today was that the authors in my library can be divided up by gender (well, of course they can), and that most of my authors are dead! Only 35.7% are alive; 15 are listed as "not a person" and 269 are "unknown."
Right away, I can see at least a few in the "unknown" category who I know are most definitely alive, but I don't really see any way to correct that listing, so I guess they'll just have to remain unknown for now. I wonder if that's anything like being undead? Well, since several of them are English professors and a few are my husband's colleagues, that's an interesting question.
