About meStumbled on Library Thing on, March 16, 2010, and less than 24 hours later I was a member and had catalogued my first book.
About my libraryMy collection reflects mostly nonfiction -- history, philosophy, literature and criticism and scads of art books, quilting books and other arts and crafts, the latter categories not yet catalogued.
