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. Enough books have crossed my threshold now that some appear to be falling into a great black hole. I keep misplacing them -- they are here within my walls, but I reached critical mass so that the time came to catalog. Had been daydreaming about it for several years, but the job seemed so daunting.
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.
