About meIt's normal for me to be in the middle of several books at a time. I like to mix the serious with the frivolous, the fiction and the nonfiction, so that whatever mood I'm in I've got something going on. At any given time I'll be reading somehing:

1. Classic (typically 19th century British lit)
2. Contemporary (might be chick lit)
3. "Serious," such as a book on science, math, economics and/or foreign policy;
4. Fantastic - typically urban fantasy (de Lint fan!)
5. Historic - usually nonfiction
6. Disposable - such as a magazine or catalog

Progress is slow: I spend all day in an office going over spreadsheets and formulae, plus I've had four eye surgeries, so eye strain at the end of a long day is a problem for me. Still, I have Book Acquisition Disorder, and I love to read, so I take my reading in small and varied doses, nightly before bedtime.

About my libraryWhen I'm done building my librarything, I'll have about 1500 volumes . . . I think. Between my fiance and myslf, we have thousands of books on three floors. We're out of shelf space but we keep buying! I'm embarrassed to admit I've been getting around to reading 50% of what I have. It's my goal to eventually read them all.
