I had this book and can't remember the title or the author. The h is a clothing designer and at some point you know she is the abducted granddaughter of a rich woman who owns stores. She falls for a man who works as president of stores but he is married to a real b*****. The OW is the niece( I think) of the grandmother and is a real bad girl. She shoplifts for kicks and treats her husband pretty badly. He and h fall for each other and finally wind up together. Help! Do any of you know this book!!!!?????

Sorry, after tearing my bookcase apart I found the book. Joanne Ross is the author.

Sounds like Legacy of Lies by Joann Ross

Boogenhagen you are really my hero. I found my own book but I think you ought to have a website or something. I love reading your opinions etc. ( By the way it is Legacy of Lies and I recommend this book and all of Ross' books.) Do you have a way of keeping up with books, titles, authors, because what I just did shows how poor I am at keeping up with what I read......and I read about 2 books a day. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to let me know.

For my dead tree collection I have a huge excell spread sheet with columns for author, title and characters plus the major trope - as i have close to 15000 books this is very handy, especially when I need to know if I am buying a duplicate. Then I just have to make sure I shelve them correctly, I don't always do this and so I have to look various places when I am trying to find them.

For my ebooks (another 23000) I use calibre - I put little tags with the trope so I have an idear what they are, plus with calibre you can do a keyword search and it will pull all the books with those keywords. This is very useful if you download the description and metadata for your books and it makes it easy to find them in hurry (plus I don't have to remember where I shelved it).

I don't acutally use a kindle - I have too many books from too many places - I use a pocketbook 622 touch that organizes my books in file folders by author like in calibre and I can load them right from calibre to my pocketbook- to get them to calibre I save them in a dedicated folder that loads them into calibre at start up. After they are in calibre I download the descriptions etc and then check the tags as I read them and that is my book cataloging system.

This sounds WAY too organized and can't be good for you.

Actually it is very handy when someone needs the name of a book, but I am still working on the organization and that is a work in progress. :)

You can also attach a plug in from GoodReads that will let you send all your books names from Calibre to your shelves on GR. It will send your tags as well I believe. That is handy so I don't have to go directly to GR to find the book and then show I read it. Only when I need to review the book do I have to find it on GR. It has helped to show friends what books I have for them to borrow.

Thanks so much for the info. I wish I had your skills but I don't so I guess I will just keep my books helter skelter and hope for the best. I try to send those I am not going to read again to the local library but then about a year later someone on a site will recommend one and there I go buying the darn thing again. Right now I have a huge garbage bag full of books to take to the library. I sure wish I had some way of making sure I don't fall into the trap again. Not much hope for that. You guys rock. Wish I had your smarts but, anyway, thanks for taking the time to explain.

It's better that way, Katharine. I firmly believe that if we all get organized and can figure out what books we have and can always find our car keys and don't finish our Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve in a blind, sweaty panic--THE WORLD WOULD END!! People like you and I are the ones keeping the world in existence, and yet do we get credit, plaudits, royalties??
NO!! There is no justice. (Taking medication now and will soon feel much better, thank you. =D )

I'm so jealous of Boogenhagen's collection and ability to organize it. My stuff is everywhere. I need one of those 'Book Porn' libraries, and a librarian, to boot. :)

Don't feel bad, my husband has done many an home improvement project building bookcases and fixing drywall from those little "oops it slipped" moments otherwise known as wall bangers. That is really the only reason I have not keeled over buried under stacks of books. :P

I'm jealous too! I thought I had a collection of books, but boogenhagen you put me to shame!

It makes us all look sick.

My husband looked at the baker's rack that I use for a bookcase in the bedroom and said one night it is going to fall on me and kill me. What a way to go. I have built in bookcases in the den and two upstairs bedrooms and still have books stacked everywhere. Here's the thing.......if I go to someone's house and can't find any books I know that person and I won't ever be really good friends. I think books make a house look warm and friendly. On the other hand having as many as I do may ALMOST be hoarding....not really since I do actually give some to the library from time to time.
For those of you in the US next week is Thanksgiving and I hope you have a great one. If you are from another country and celebrate family during this time of the year hope your's is as nice as our annual holiday.
