... there are two copies but I have both of them?

Oh, interesting! I'd say yes, personally, just because otherwise the easy solution is to only catalog one of them (possibly putting a 2 in the Copies field), and that feels wrong. On the other hand, when sorting by Total Members, it wouldn't be in the 1 section of the list. Hmmmm...

I don't think I've counted such as ULTBs in my library, and I believe I do have at least one (or two...depending on how you count). I know my parents do.

misericordia? Have you a ruling on this one?

I've counted it as ULTB if I've got more than one copy. Also if the one copy is cataloged twice: once in my husband's account and one in our joint account.

Huh? What? (rubs eyes while get up out of comfy chair.)
Well let us see. Rule number one says "1. The book(media) must show up on Library Thing works page with one and only member, namely you, as having the book(media)" Since, the book is showing up with you as the only owner, be it ...once twice three times a lady...uh I mean a book. Seem in the rules to me.

Why does "Roadside Geology" show up twice in our common books,setnahkt?

Both the 1980 and 2002 editions, perhaps?

Hmmm seem reasonable. I was going to say not much change in Geology from 1980 to 2002, but then I remember each year they widen the road to Colorado Springs and find more fossilized plants.

PS I noticed you like a lot of my local favorite bookstores, have you ever been to this one: http://www.librarything.com/venue/8228/The-Book-Stack

Weird hour but always something interesting.

I've been to a used bookstore on University near the UofD, but I'm not sure it was the same one - don't remember the name.
