Add the book to Library Thing. Username: Pumpingstationone Password: ps1frocks After adding, create a tag for the book. The tags are library of congress classification. (See http://lib.colostate.edu/howto/others/findbklc.html ) They are left-aligned 14pt Times New Roman. They are taped on with packing tape (But if anyone wants to donate archival quality paper and tape, that would be great).

== More Info ==
If adding an updated version of the book, just tag it and put the old book in the plastic basket next to the shelves. If you think a book sucks, rate it on LibraryThing with a brief review. Then move the book to the Removed collection on the site. Attach a piece of paper to the book that says Removed and a date 2 weeks from the date moved. Put the book in the plastic basket.
