Online Equine Library

Boy am I having fun playing rather than behaving and heading off to bed. Have been strolling through horse sites/blogs and found one that listed horse related books that the person owned/had read and out of curiosity clicked on the link.

This lead me to Librarything.com – a site where you can build an online catalog of all the books you have, drawing information from the likes of Amazon.com. Now, as someone who has recently posted about building up my horse related library, this was totally appealing! Curious to know what I’ve got in my library? Check out the search I have placed on the right hand column of this page a bit further down. Example, type in the word ‘polo’ and see what happens… totally cool!:D

You can also have on your blog/site a random show of books in your library like so:

“You Know You’re A Horse Person When… …on rainy days, you organize the tack room, not the house. “

For Me

If you can’t get something out of your own blog, what is the world coming to? So I have a huge obsession with books – namely, horse books. Surprised? I know – of course not!

Currently I have around 70 horse books in my collection – this is discluding all my magazines and catalogues from horse sales. I have been telling myself for the past 18 months that I won’t buy any more until I’ve read all the ones I’ve got, but it just ain’t gonna happen! I love purchasing horse books. Once I’ve got my property established, one of my dreams is to have a library with books from all over, about anything horse related!

So I have a request for anyone who reads this post:
– Help me to grow this collection of books
– Help me to establish a library that contains fiction books for all ages; non fiction books on any and every discipline, health issues, nutrition, breeding or anything else horsey!

How? Easy, send me an email or reply to this post with the title and/or author of a book that you have or have read that you feel would be an asset in anyone’s horse library. If you really enjoyed it/learnt a lot from it; chances are I will too!

The more information you can provide, the better – Title, Author, Subject, even a link to where I can purchase the book online if you’d like! I look forward to your suggestions 😀
