About my libraryMy husband and I both brought a lot of books into this house. Most of the books labeled "To Be Read" are his, though I hope to read most of them myself. I may change the label at some point, because I'm not sure I'm really going to read all of them.

We both love to read, and our interests are rather varied. He was an English Literature major, so we have a ton of classics. Though we've lately become interested in history, I think that our first love will always be good literature.

I have decided to include books that I do not own, and they are indicated as such in the tags. Unless the work was listed in the 1001 (or however many) books you need to read before you die, I am only including books that I either reviewed on Amazon back in the day or that I have read since signing up for LibraryThing.
