About meI'm a bit like an echidna in that I'm Australian, like to eat my carrots raw and definitely have my prickly moments!
About my libraryMy library is organised on LibraryThing by tags, to show my books alphabetically by author, and in series order; all the books I physically own...and since the introduction of collections those I have read, but now parted with. I have trouble finding shelf space for all these series of fantasy, science fiction and crime, plus contemporary and classic works of literature, that I continually, and obsessively, add to. And it is not helped by a penchant for Man Booker listed books - and subsequently all the other works written by these authors.
