About meI'm a long time Tolkien fan/collector, also into Science Fiction and Cult TV.

About my libraryThe library is a shared with my other half. Tolkien, U.N.C.L.E., James Bond, Science Fiction and Archaeology are mostly there because of my interests. Children's fiction, museum studies, Dutch architecture and Welsh are largely her fault. The fantasy and detective fiction are shared interests, as are the maps.
Almost all our library is now on LibraryThing.
Mostly I haven't added posters/prints although a few with ISBNs are there as a result of the initial bulk import or because they are by an author I particularly collect.
Periodicals have not been added unless they consist of items which are books in their own right.
I have a backlog of Tolkien calendars to add still.
CDs/Records/Audio cassettes have only been added if they are audio books or spoken word rather than music.
DVDs and Videos have not been added at all.
The large collection of theatre and concert programmes has not been added, although as of 2013 I have started adding new additions.
All of our "guide books" have now been added (I hadn't realised how many we had).
I've now added the Japanese books and guide books we acquired in Japan in summer (2007) however for some of them I need someone who can read/type Japanese to get the titles correct.
[She says: she thinks she is "helping" with tags. She is also trying to write reviews of EVERYTHING where we are the only owners - particularly where it is inexplicable why such a great book is not on more shelves. She wonders if our library is ever flagged as the top (or anywhere near the top) of 'users with your books': you are all much more like one another than you are like us].
