Finally I have my copy of Terry Pratchett’s “Making Money”.

Finally I got myself Riddley Scott’s Blade Runner. This is probably the best science fiction movie ever made and even can be considered one of the best movies of all time.
They managed to take a brilliant short story by Philip K. Dick (“Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?“) and add a twist of bitterness to it that even Dick did not managed to include in his story although he’s no stranger to it.
On top of the increasingly biting storyline, there is the visual wealth in the setting of the world at the time. This, together with the excellent acting of Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Daryl Hannah and Edward James Olmo, gives a great movie. An absolute must see, even for non-scifi fans.
New kid on the block in the world of online library sites is Shelfari.
Assuming things could only get better (after my initial search for a book version of last.fm), I checked out Shelfari as recommended by Lifehacker, but alas …
The sad thing is that I couldn’t even bring myself to find out why it didn’t work.
Maybe in better times?
