I have decided the best way to organize my BSC books is chronologically by publication date -- that is, with Super Specials and Mysteries mixed in where they fit in the main series timeline. And Little Sister books, too.

Why, other than to drive myself insaner?

So that I can make a complete (looping!) timeline of the series. This is one of my Major BSC Canon Projects. The other is making a spreadsheet of how attractive they all find each other in every chapter 2, to see if I can draw lines of desire using the power of SCIENCE.

I've separated my adult books from my good middle reader/young adult books:


([livejournal.com profile] fox1013's icon, that is)

The only problem with this?

+I am still buying into the artificial separation of quality literature like Little Women and formulaic crap like my horribly offensive crime-solving nun books adult and young adult and middle reader fiction?
+Despite having only half as much adult fiction, I still don't have room to shelve it?
+I don't know how to sort the YA stuff that doesn't have authors?
+It highlights the sad gaps in the series I am collecting?
+I totally forgot about the twenty+ SVH books I had hidden in the closet, so now I am not sure I have adequate shelving after all?
+There's still no way to hide the fact that the single largest category of books I own is BSC books.
+And I'm cataloging them according to my own geeky system
+and putting all the Paula Danziger books in front of all the Ann M. Martin books so that Snail Mail No More (and eventually, P.S., Longer Letter Later can live together?
+and calling this whole section of my bookshelves "Pollyanna."
+Meanwhile, on the adult side, I can see that my thorough-going devotion to mysteries, clergy and religious, crime-solving religious, and pedophilia is plainly on display. (Okay, I've only got Lolita and Tom Perotta's Little Children, plus various mysteries involving members of the Catholic church so... face meets desk.

I sold back a box of books to Half-Price books this afternoon. With the proceeds I bought 2 Little Sister books and a vegetarian cookbook.

One of my yardsale finds: Sammy Keyes and the Sisters of Mercy by Wenelin Van Draanen. Let's see. This book is:

+Part of a series
+of mysteries
+for kids
+and has bonus surprise nuns.

\o/

(Ooh, and I have just realized that Sammy is a girl! EVEN BETTER!)

I really wish more of you lived around here and could come over and have a slumber party. :(

BSC AU ideas that I have had in the past year:
+BSC Regency Romance AU (The Young Governesses series). I have titles for the first four books! A Dangerous Habit, The Bradford Phantom, Chosen Vices and Secret Salvation.
+BSC convent AU. Because Kristy Thomas was born to be a Mother Superior.

I'm reading the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld and writing BtVS crossovers in my head. Maybe someday I will actually write fanfic on paper again.
