First let me say, Where have you been all my life?
I am so happy you are here.
The book stack graph is hysterical. Please add a Brachiosaurus at 43 feet.
It is a stretch between Stonehenge and Cleopatra's Needle. I have been so motivated to get the data entry done to see those stats.
Thanks for the nerd love.

I think I discovered that stats page months after joining and it also made my day. Personal fave is weight in adult badgers

>2 SandraArdnas: I want to know if they're British or North American badgers.

My partner always asks what landmark we're nearing the top of. Stats/memes is such a great way to lose much too much time when I could actually be reading.

PS: Make sure that in https://www.librarything.com/settings/yourbooks, the checkbox in front of "Hide pagination, dimensions, weight and volume fields" is NOT clicked (basically if you do not see these, you do not have the physical stats :)

Welcome to LT!

There's a Group called Recommended Site Improvements. Start a topic over there (and maybe refer to this topic), and the LT staff will be sure to see it.

Oh, thanks. I needed a good laugh.

I love seeing how tall my book collection would be although it is at times simultaneously terrifying. My total book collection is approaching the height of the Empire State Building - more worryingly my TBR pile is taller than the Taj Mahal - goal for the year is to get below the height of the TM!

>11 Peace2: You might want to check your stats. is your copy of Carrie's War really 20" thick?

(Since I couldn't get metric system to stick, I gave up on this feature long ago).

>12 MarthaJeanne: Ha! No! I might be nearer achieving my goal than I thought. I've just taken a look at the two copies of Carrie's War and at a guess one had the thickness and height reversed and the other with the 20" thickness is definitely wrong - I've had to take a more realistic guess as I don't have the actual book any longer but the two copies were approximately the same size. This comes of trusting the data that's already in the system - I've never actually manually entered the physical size of my books. Shame they were in the completed pile already!

Wait a minute. My copy of Carrie's War is 20' thick. Looks like you made a common error with the dimensions. Just like LT did with Stonehenge.
