About meCreataholic and mother of six, I've been a dedicated book worm since I learned to read at the age of four.

I don't read as many books as I used to though, because I spend so much time writing instead.

This year I am participating in the 100 Books in 2015 Challenge group, here's my thread..

About my libraryWhen I first joined LT, I started by adding everything I had readily to hand by a few favorite authors. I soon decided that was a slow way to find interesting correspondences between my library and other people's, so I started adding one book from each author. That also bogged down quickly.

I am now using LT to keep track of what I'm currently reading, whether I own it or not. I find it very useful and convenient for that purpose, and I suspect that will continue to be the main thrust of my LT library additions in the future. I find the task of adding each book as I read (or reread) it to be much less intimidating that the thought of trying to catalog every book in the house.

Note: I do not use the Wishlist collection as an actual wishlist. The books that are in there, are there because I want them to have purplish checkmarks. :)
