I just went through and cleaned out my no-longer-ULTBs - went from 123 down to 117. Then it occurred to me to check if I had new ULTBs - and I'm up to 129! Some puzzle me - I think somebody uncataloged them, because I've had them a while and would have marked them ULTB a long time ago if they'd been singles. But a lot are new. And some no-longer-ULTBs that I've long been surprised at being the only member - nice that I'm not any more. Fun!

What are examples? I have a electronics book that has been combined and un-combined a couple of times.

The "Easy" book is a significant knock off of the other.

I can't remember now what the books were then. At this point I still have exactly - oh, no I don't! Oh, funny. I still have 129 single books, and 129 ULTBs - but they're not the same ones. There are 4 ULTB-tagged books that have more than one owner! So now I need to go through and find the non-ULTB single books...

Someone got Brady's Bend (a book of obscure and wonderful poetry). A lot of people have Mystery of the Sea Horse, so I suspect that one got combined. The other two are an old Western and a book on biking in the San Francisco Bay Area - one other person each.

The new ULTBs are all new in my library, so that makes sense. A (n obscure) music book, two cookbooks, and a book that isn't published yet (that I'm editing for the publisher).

About 2-3 weeks ago, I went and cleaned up my ULTB's to a fair degree. But with 576 of them its hard to keep track.

With some serials, it's hard to hard to know what to do. Is my Michelin France 1929 Red Guide unique? -- I also have a 1932 guide and it is quite similar except for many of the prices.

I tagged my ULTBs for the first time today. If anyone finds I'm wrong about any of them, please let me know. I have 126.

I am betting this is going to be combine at some point Wind in the Willows, The (Junior Deluxe Editions).

Highlight! oh, man those are great! I use to read those all the time. I just imagine what goofus and gallant would be like today. Goofus texts and talk while he drives, Gallant use Bluetooth.

Youth and the FBI, what is this about?

Very nice collection.

My ULTBs declined slightly since I last checked, I think purely due to people cataloguing books that were previously only mine.

But I have added three new ones I acquired "across the ditch" in New Zealand where I hired a car and drove around for two weeks recently.

The Kauri Museum, Matakohe by Gordon Ell.

The Story of the Church of the Good Shepherd: Lake Tekapo, New Zealand by Peter Hurricks

and

Waitangi Treaty Grounds: Our Birthplace Te Pitowhenua: Souvenir Guide (Author unknown).
