I made a page that shows books as they enter the system, in real time. I did it as a test of some new code, not because I thought it would be a cool feature.

I find it hypnotic, both fascinating and will-depleting at the same time. I hope you do too.

It does put the lie to the notion that LibraryThing is all about J. K. Rowling and Terry Pratchett. In fact, the most popular stuff is a tiny fraction of the whole. People are putting some very interesting collections up!

Update: This week I will (briefly) emerge from my post-baby hole and get a whole bunch of work done, so thank you for your patience and stay tuned.
