Not horribly active in anything these days, combination of ADD, Narcolepsy, SAD, allergies, arthritis, OCPD. if it weren't for my being innately cheerful I'd really be depressed, as it is a certain level of depression is unavoidable. So I read silly books, and feel better.

About my libraryMainly in boxes at this time, something about having just moved, which has resulted in *GASP* WEEDING the collection.

It's big, ok? 30yr+ runs of Astounding/Analog, F&SF, long runs of IASFM, Galaxy/IF, etc. Tons of SF/F books, significant amounts of Harlequin/Silhouette Romances ($0.49 @ local Goodwill made this *very* affordable!), significant European pre-1700 history/culture, large woodworking/homebuilding/maintenance collection, etc.

As I add items, it is brought home to me just how diverse my collections are, the breadth and depth; it really *is* a research library! Also how unique some of the items are. Which results in a fair number of manual entries, aided and abetted by my desire to use this as a partial insurance inventory [if I list it in here, I have it, and the edition matches].
