About meAbout My Picture: No, that isn't me. It's a painting in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here's the link. If you want some idea of what I actually look like, I can be seen in costume here.

Notes to Self

About my libraryTaggage:
Anything tagged ^^ LC/Dewey from book has its Library of Congress and Dewey Decimal numbers pulled from the cataloging-in-publication stuff that can be found in the front matter of some books. If you need this information for a book so tagged, feel free to copy my numbers. Just lop the year off the LC number if you have a different edition than I do.

I use .unread to denote a book I've cataloged but haven't yet read -- regardless of whether I can actually get at it. For unread books that are on my shelves, not in storage, see my .tbr tag.

I have a Short List and a Shorter List. Everything on the latter is also on the former, but not everything on the former is on the latter. (One's short, the other's more short.)

As for my other tags, you'll notice that there is a sizable group (a pair of them, really) of tags near one end of the list, all beginning with an "@". These can be understood as Dewey and LC numbers. These come from all sorts of sources (not just front matter). The first section of these, tags ending with a three-digit number, are Dewey numbers. I have hotspots at 973, 942, and 746. The second group, ending with (generally) a pair of letters, is a ballparking of the LC number. The largest hotspot is @ PR (which in Dewey is spread out over a portion of the 800's). Other hotspots include @ DA (mostly 940's), @ E (mostly 970's), and @ TT (mostly those 746's).

Last Ten Books:
* H. W. Brands, Andrew Jackson: His Life and Times.
* Simon Armitage (translator), Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
* Joseph Plumb Martin, A Narrative of a Revolutionary Soldier.
* Lisa Hilton, Queens Consort: England's Medieval Queens.
* Christine A. Lunardini, From Equal Suffrage to Equal Rights: Alice Paul and the National Woman's Party, 1910-1928.
* Erik Larson, Thunderstruck.
* David McCullough, The Johnstown Flood.
* P. D. James, Death Comes to Pemberley.
* Diana Gabaldon, The Fiery Cross.
* Anne Somerset, Ladies in Waiting: From the Tudors to the Present Day.
