About meWell, for starters, I am a total bookworm. Not only do I love reading, I love everything having to DO with reading. I love cataloguing these books, reviewing them, getting suggestions. I especially love books about books. Or books with lists in them of what works have influenced other people. I also like coffee, my dogs, cigarettes, and Netflixing the crap out of serial television shows.

About my libraryStill working on it, but I think I've catalogued most of what I've read over the past three years. I've been keeping a database of everything I finish. Please note, this does not include every book I've started. A lot of the works appearing here are Wishlist--things I have not read but want to, mostly courtesy of a one Ms. Nancy Pearl, Rockstar Librarian. I'm still not sure what my policy is on finishing books. Ms.Pearl thinks that you should give a book 50 pages before deciding if you want to commit to it or not. Do any of you have any thoughts on this? I mean, is life too short to keep reading something you're not enjoying? But then again, I think of certain books (in particular, The Cider House Rules by John Irving) that I would never have finished if I only gave it 50 pages. That book didn't really capture me until about 100 pages or so into it. Maybe I'm thinking overmuch about this.
