To support my book habit, I write and edit for others. When I’m not working, reading or haunting bookshops, I write for pleasure. I also curate http://www.librarything.com/catalog/OscarWildesLibrary.
I have started cataloguing Bram Stoker's library, too.
Update August 2013: The Wilde and Stoker libraries are currently on hold because of difficult personal circumstances and the loss of my library.
About my libraryI estimate that I had 500-600 books, which I started cataloguing at LibraryThing. In 2013, disaster struck and I lost most of my personal library, so many of the titles listed in my catalogue represent books that I once owned.
