About meTEMPORARY INACTIVITY NOTICE: currently in the process of a move - books are semi-packed and everywhere...will be back after we are settled to update and re-organize.
About my "Favorite Authors":
This list is actually very restricted. I have included as my Favorite Authors only those authors for whom I am interested in obtaining a complete collection of available works.
There are plenty of authors that I read, and read a lot of, but if I am not trying to eventually obtain every single thing they have ever written that I can get my hands on (frugally) then I don't list them as "favorite".
1.) Release to Copy/Repost - Please feel free to quote/repost any of my reviews, talk posts, wiki contributions, etc. anywhere you think my words might be of interest. If you feel attribution is necessary, may attribute to "PortiaLong." (For example: Go Review That Book! group reposting to their Wiki)
2.) Release to Contact Me - in my comments on this page regarding any errors you find in my Library (Combiners - THIS MEANS YOU!), feel free also to contact me via comments if you disagree with any combining/separating I have done on LT.
Some LT pages that I sometimes want to find but can't remember where they are:
Spam Works Proposals
Recently Created Series
Random Member, Work, or Tag
Tag Combination/Separation Proposals
Recent Picture Gallery (Authors)

About my libraryMy LT catalogue consists of books I have HAD IN MY POSSESSION since I joined LT. It includes books I have now, books I had during this time period but have "withdrawn", books that I have borrowed and read (and hopefully returned). It includes my spouse's books in these categories. It does NOT include most of the many books that I have read prior to joining LT - yet - I will be adding more of these as I go along now that we have collections and differently colored checkmarks (Ya - HOO!!!!). It does NOT include the majority of books on my "Wishlist" - although I expect that to change now that we have the long-awaited *Purple Checkmarks*!

*Additionally - tag "Available for sale|mooch|trade" will be found on books I have slated for removal from my library whether or not they have been listed on BookMooch. Feel free to leave me a comment if you are interested in these books.
