About meI am an obsessive bibliophile, and my tastes are varied and eclectic. I've been addicted to reading since I was 3 years old...so over 30 years now, and my reading habits tend to be cyclical. When I'm in a reading frenzy, I'll read 15+ books per month, but unfortunately these frenzies are often followed by dry spells that could last months, or even years at a time. LibraryThing has helped even out these cycles, but due to giving birth to TWINS recently, I'm understandably in another reading dry spell.
About my libraryMy library is divided into 3 main sections: Read, To Read, and Currently Reading. My "To Read" section is updated, but my "Read" section is mostly limited to the books I still own, and I've included a few of my childhood favorites as well. I'm now better at keeping track of my reading adventures, so the recent months are accurate.
