Book Library & Term Reference?

Thank you all for your views and comments, they are very encouraging.

Soon I hope to post my library of woodworking books. These are what I have been gleaning a lot of knowledge from. I'll probably make it a tab at the top of the page, so myself and others can easily reference it. I plan on taking pics of the books and posting them that way. This will be a trial by fire in posting photos with captioning, so this could be interesting.

Of course blogs have also been a huge influence. I would love to share what the 60+ blogs are that I try to follow but I don't know how to do that efficiently. I'm mostly looking for a way to share them without hand typing them all in and adding in link for each (yea that would suck). if anyone knows how to do this with Google Blogger, PLEASE let me know!

I've also thought about trying to compile a list of woodworking terms and the Japanese word(s) equivalent. I am not proclaiming that I have instantly become fluent in Japanese nor mastered any form of the craft of woodworking, far eastern or western. It is just me trying to compile terms that us english speaking woodworkers would (for some reason) want to know what a term is in Japanese. I'm not sure how I'm going to do this. I was thinking of doing this as a link to a Google Drive file but I don't want to have to make 2 or 3 mouse clicks to get to this, so I might have to constantly edit that post every now and then as I continue to come across them. If anyone has suggestions for this too, please send them my way. But would anyone even want to have access to something like this? Let me know in the comment section below.

Also, I may not be posting very much for some time. I desperately need to finish my thesis from grad school. It has been a year and a half since I finished the program but I never did complete the paper. Now I have to early summer to be done for good, but my wonderful wife wants me to finish before winter is out (EEKKK!)

Until next time.
