About meMost people finish reading a book and don't have an opinion of it. Reviewing a book forces you to have an opinion. That's a paraphrase, but V.S. Naipaul said that. At least Paul Theroux says so in Sir Vidia's Shadow.
About my libraryThese books don't constitute my library. I'm going to use Library Thing to keep track of what I've read, though I might throw in the occasional old faithful. Because I live abroad and have moved a lot, I try very hard not to accumulate books. It hasn't been so difficult. If I know a book is in one of the libraries in town, or that a friend owns it, that's almost as good as owning it. Sometimes I donate a book to one of these libraries, so I can retrieve it if need be. Books of the airport/beach reading variety are recycled back to a secondhand bookstore.
