About meI've kept my own mini-review site (www.wallack.us) 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 [www.fnprg.com], by far the most detailed book catalog software 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.
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. It replaced by Sony Reader (PRS505 which I like much better than the PRS500). 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 3 (recently replacing her Kindle 1) and my son & daughter each use a Kindle Fire (my daughter previously used a Sony Reader 300).
