About meHi, I'm an academic, public services librarian who collects all kinds of books and movies. I'm responsible for the westerns, mysteries, and romances. I also love disaster movies, don't ask me why. My daughter is the Manga/Anime fiend. We both read science fiction/fantasy. I love the outdoors and I like to know the names of things. All things. Hence the large natural history identification collection.

About my libraryI tried to not include the tag books, movies, dvd etc... but in the end I had to give in. It makes the sorting and searching easier. I've used the word movies to include all movies. I use the word videos to include documentary, workout and other kinds non movie dvds/vhses. For television series I used the obvious tag "tv series". After all, they aren't movies even if they tell stories.

I also ended up using fiction and nonfiction tags on the books. Nonfiction includes philosophy, religious treatises and other works that could be considered fiction by some people. Fiction includes all creative works such as poetry, plays, prose and stories. Essays ended up being mostly in the nonfiction category because they are usually a point of view about something and not a fictional, creative work. I spent a lot of time thinking about this, and am still not sure if it's right. But it should work for me. :)

The Works page for Shakespeare's Birds indicates you added it recently, which is why I'm bothering you. I recently learned of the book and am considering it as a gift for my bird-watching sister, but Google has been unable to tell me what the book is about. It seems reasonable to assume it's about the natural- and name-histories of birds mentioned in his plays, but I'm chary of giving a gift based upon an assumption. I wonder if you might have time to tell me a bit about it?

Hi, Do you think the book "Fairy Houses and Beyond!" is Interesting If so suggest me too also...
Hi, I just joined this site. I noticed that you're a Da Vinci Code fan. Have you read Synarchy? Here's a link:
eagles are Kodiak, Feb '08. When I was snowed in.
I found a biography & info on Cooper Edens here: I only have two of his books, but hope to have them all. He is enchanting.
I think you'd be correct in filing essays under nonfiction. As a writing major, I worked heavily on essays in my "creative nonfiction" courses. By definition, I think an essay is nonfiction, even if it is highly opinion-biased - much like a biography.

We share some good books. :)
