What Would Misericordia Do...Do. Which of course doesn't use all the letters!
Multi-Unique-Library-Thing-Book=MULTB, maybe?? Like for the people who own several copies of a book that no one else has?
MULTB looked vaguely computerish.
However the MULTB, number was an idea to get people to enter review and covers of ULTB. I am embarrassed to say, I can't remember what the "M" was for? Multiple ULTB points. Oh well no one much has want to pursue it. Mostly I would guess because it would be a pain to figure out or confirm. Any one with and idea of a way to encouraging people enter reviews, covers of Common Knowledge is welcome to suggest it.
You know, "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession many books will catalog them" or something like that.
I first heard (read) it a while back and it referred to Matt Dillon. I always thought that any other sites eg (the What Would Mayor Daly do?) were being po-mo and referencing that for any WD name*.
No grounds for believing it, just thought it :-)
(*Kind of like the ".... 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon" that used to be referenced on sites)
edited to add a question mark. Because it needed it )
An alternative could be WWCFD but he would have to find a dry shirt before returning the library.
Message #7 here:
"A truth universally acknowledged" to be sure ;-)
I go by WWDSD, as in
You can take it from the box
And house the chickens by the fox
You can put it on the shelf
All alone or beside itself
You can squeeze it if it's wide
Or leave it leaning to the side
You can flat them if they're tall
Put Charlie Brown by Roald Dahl
You can make your own bookends
Crafted from sticks and odds and ends
Like tinker toys or lincoln logs
Just don't forget to catalog!
