About meI've kept my own mini-review site ( for a few years and I decided to give LibraryThing a try. I don't propose to try to catalog my entire library (way too big of a job; plus I'm doing that for myself using BookCAT [], by far the most detailed book catalog software [sadly no longer available]). I'd originally planned to limit my use of LibraryThing to books that I read going forward, but after seeing how easy LibraryThing is to use (how's that for a plug?), I decided go ahead and copy my reviews from my personal website.

Please visit my blog ( and the Big Country Book of Lyrics (

About my libraryI'm a book collector focusing primarily on thrillers (leaning toward espionage) and some fantasy/sci-fi series. I am a huge James Bond fan (focusing more on the books than the movies) and I think that Quiller is the best espionage series that nobody has ever read. While I enjoy hardbacks, I tend to limit my collection to paperbacks. I also read books on various eBook devices (I'm a sucker for eBook hardware). Presently, I've been using my iPad Mini. It replaced my iPad 3 which replaced my iPad which replaced my Sony Reader. I sometimes use a Sony PRS-T1 when I'm reading by the pool. In the past I've used Palm eReader on a Sony Clie. I also have two old RCA REB 1100 (one upgraded to a GEB 1150), but I don't use it anymore (although it is still a great device). And just for yucks, I bought an RCA REB 1200 on eBay (cool device, but boy is it heavy...). Somewhere I've even got a Franklin eBookMan. My wife uses a Kindle Paperwhite (which replaced her Kindle 3 which replaced her Kindle 1) and my son & daughter each use a Kindle Paperwhite (which replaced Kindle Fires [and my daughter previously used a Sony Reader 300, too]). So, I'd say we're an eBook family.

The date started and date finished fields in my library are approximations included primarily for the purpose of helping keep track of the order in which I've read books.
