Whoops! What have I done to myself?

I was frus­trat­ed that there were a fair num­ber of books on my “shelves” at Good Reads that had no asso­ci­at­ed cov­er image. I col­lect­ed all but, I think, two of the cov­er images for the books I had list­ed in Now Read­ing, but couldn’t find a way to make use of them at GR. I also found a lot of incon­sis­ten­cies in the way titles were rep­re­sent­ed, and some mis­spelled author’s names.

Then I noticed a link about apply­ing to be a librar­i­an. They’re the peo­ple who can edit author and book infor­ma­tion. Cool! I applied, fig­ur­ing they’d tell me I haven’t been active long enough or some­thing, but not­ing that this is one endeav­or in which OCD is an asset.

Odd­ly enough, they approved me.

This may not be a pow­er I should have. I’ve spent a ridicu­lous amount of my awake time today nor­mal­iz­ing data their data. And enjoy­ing it.

LOL. I have been try­ing to keep up with mine at shel­fari. I haven’t seen a link to become a librar­i­an, but I don’t think I could resist either. Try to use the pow­er only for good. 🙂
