About meNow: 33, male, from Victoria, BC, Canada. Cautiously optimistic.
About my libraryI love books until they fall apart in my arms, unless I pass them on to another lover. I also spent a lot of years traveling light, and although these days the volumes do seem to have started filling the corners a little, I would still throw 'em on the fire at a moment's notice to show my devotion to the Dear Leader or get a good beach party going. It makes "my library" something I'm kind of unwilling to define - I kind of like to think of the universe in general as my library. My LibraryThing is not a catalog of books I own, but an aide-memoire where I can record books I read and what I thought about them at the time of reading.
You're probably in the final stages of a Ph.D. or otherwise finding a way to make your living out of reading. You are one of the literati. Other people's grammatical mistakes make you insane.
