Final (Approx) Library Results

I've entered just about everything I can find into Readerware. There's still course packets, a few computer manuals and lots of magazines, but all the books[1] are entered.

Titles: 1,427
Books: 1,471
Total Value of Books: 11,968.68 [2]
Number of unvalued books: 126 [3]
Number of first editions: 5 [4]
Number of signed books: 4 [4]
Number read: 0 [5]
Number unread: 1,427 [5]

Now comes the shelving.

[1] Except 2 Russian books which have ISBNs but don't come up on Readerware's searches. I don't have a Cyrillic keyboard handy to enter anything about them either.
[2] I have a number of books valued in pounds and a few in Euros. I don't know if it's converting, just adding them like any other number, or what.
[3] Almost all Library of Congress records. Plus stuff I typed in on my own and yearbooks.
[4] There are more. These are just the HS yearbooks we checked as such for fun.
[5] Tied for most inaccurate number in the report.
adulthood isn't a reqard for being a go

Steps through adulthood

Just another one of those things I figure "real adults" have and kids don't.[1]

Went down to my credit union and rented a 3"x5" safe deposit box. It was the only size available, but it should take CDs diagonally and all our important papers should tri-fold. Also set up an IRA so I can rollover my disappearing 401(k).

[1] I don't mean to dismiss anyone who doesn't have one, of course. This is just how I feel about me.
