About my libraryMy library is becoming a much more accurate representation of the books I own. I also add in books I've read but don't own, if I've read them recently or if they're particularly memorable. I include books in my library that theoretically belong to my kids or my husband only if I've read them myself recently. I'm trying to remember to add audiobooks and kindle books that I acquire but I often overlook them.
