About meAt dray in the meta fields of the board.

Into total immersion luddism- the kind where you turn out all the lights and tell scary stories by the fire, not the kind where you dress up like the Burger King and go jousting.

I buy books compulsively but I’ve never bought one, not a single volume, where I didn’t think sometime, somewhere I would like to read it. This has led me to buy Invertebrate Embryology and a Jeeves book on the same day. I’ll read them both (if I live to be 1000), but chances are I’ve already done so with the Wodehouse and the text book is in storage. I read somewhat less compulsively.

About my libraryI’m moving a lot now, so most of my books are in storage. Most of everything is in storage. I do have what I call the ‘Traveling Library’ that I’ve been carting around for the past few years; that’s what I've entered.

I use my LT account to track what I've got on the shelves and where the books I've gotten rid of have gone, and why. I've outsourced my wish list to Amazon as the shopping cart.

I donate most of the fiction I read to Operation Paperback. Check it out- the idea of being stuck in East Wahoo or on a ship with nothing to read gives me the willies. They also have special requests that help me thin my shelves when the stacks get too unwieldy.
