About meI'm a science fiction, fantasy and mystery fan. Since all three of those genres include lots of series, I always have more on my "plan to read" pile. Lately I've been reading several Medieval mystery series and lots of knitting books. Plus, there are always more Star Trek and Doctor Who novels than I could hope to keep up with.

I've been trying to get back up to reading more than 50 books a year, tracking them as goals on Shelfari, and I finally made it with 52 in 2015. I added a personal challenge in Sept. 2015 - seeing how many of my backlog of Star Trek books I can get read by the 50th anniversary in Sept. 2016.

About my libraryI started writing down what books I read back when I was in high school. Once I got access to computers, having degrees in Computer Science and working with databases, I set up a book database and started entering my book data, though I never included dates or number of times read. In 2008 I joined Shelfari and began gradually transferring my book information (2500+ at that point) there. I managed to keep up with entering what I'm currently reading, and what I buy, but I'm still working on updating everything. When Shelfari's outlook became unclear, I explored other options. The new site Leafmarks looked interesting, and the import worked well, so I moved everything there but LM, like GoodReads, uses shelves instead of tags and I didn't like the input interface as much as Shelfari, so with Shelfari now shutting down, I decided to try LibraryThing and it appears to be a much better match for what I want to do with a book collection/cataloging/discussion site.

While cleaning up some old files, I found some old book reviews I wrote for the SF fanzine OtherRealms between 1989 and 1992. I've added them to the book entries. I'm still getting all the old books from the original database into my collections here, slowly.
