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 and go jousting. Almost everything I even think of doing seems like it’s going to bore me silly until I actually get there, do it and then it’s the best. I’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’m going to be entering.

I buy books compulsively but I’ve never bought one, not a single volume, when 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 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. Everything in 'Your Library' is currently on the shelves or in the cloud.

I donate most of the fiction I read to Operation Paperback. Check them out.
