  1. Very interesting post... I hate bibliographies because it reminds me of essays from Uni and how I'm always getting the format wrong.

  4. Cheree, am hearing ya. Formatting and quoting sources, the bane of my study years. ;-)

    Bz, thanks! I chose it carefully. In direct contradiction of 'systematic' listing of books, that would be me.

    Words Crafter, cheers! Likewise, a necessary evil, non? ;-)

    Bibliographies remind me of school and reports. Thank goodness I don't have to do much of those anymore.

  26. I cannot say that I enjoyed having to include bibliographies with school papers (mainly due to the rigid rules of listing everything) but I do wish more people would include even an informal list of references when they are writing more than just there own opinion.

  27. Since I'm a grad student in history, bibliographies are my life! And for those who commented about how difficult formatting was, they have great programs that do all that for you now! Isn't technology wonderful? :-)
