Answering the question, "What's your favorite book?" is nearly impossible for me, but here's the best I can do...

Favorite book to teach: To Kill a Mockingbird
Book that rocked my world, so I list it as my favorite book: The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
Best young adult book I've read: probably Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, though I adore Looking for Alaska, The Fault in Our Stars, and An Abundance of Katherines by John Green too

About my libraryI've been using LT to catalog all of my books so I can keep track of what I have and what I don't have. It all started during a blizzard that resulted in three snow days in the winter of 2010, when my husband, friend, and I built new bookshelves for my office and thought it best to catalog my books for insurance purposes. I used to be primarily a Shefari user, but I find LT much easier to use when adding a large volume of books to my catalog. Plus now that I've joined the 75 Books Challenge group, I'm on here all the time. I've even tried my hand at some combinations and separations, which I only used to do on Shelfari!

I'm still struggling with tags vs. libraries on here, so sometimes things might look a little funky in my organization. Eventually, I'll get it all worked out. The "Your Library" includes all of the books I own that are currently in my house; "On Shelves" is for books that are shelved (or eventually will be when I make enough room); "In House" is used for ones that I am working on cleaning out, so they are mostly ones that are on PBS. However, I just recently changed over to this format, so things need some work. It's always a process.

I really need to work on getting all of my books tagged, but I'm so busy reading, that it's hard to find such a large chunk of time for the project :)

As you can see, there are a few main genres of books in my library: young adult, literature (usually classic, but some modern), modern fiction, and sci-fi. I own very few non-fiction books, but most of those are books about the history of music or genres that interest me (usually punk). I hardly ever read straight-up biographies.
