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.

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