About my libraryMost of my older books are unlisted. They're still in boxes somewhere or buried on shelves I can't reach. So I've done relatively little cataloging per se, and many genres and subject matters are disproportionately represented or underrepresented.

But I have kept up with acquisitions since joining, and I've done something I always meant to do--logged everything I've read. I wish I'd started that when I was twenty. Or ten.

The tag 'NR' (no rating, not rated) applies to books to which I have some sort of personal connection: I know the author, for instance, or I edited the book.
