About my libraryI'll be moving soon so am purging my Library. I've started a list of books I'm planning to donate and put it in Collections as "Donate 2017." Some of these are classic scifi, fantasy, romance, mysteries that are hard to find anymore. Please feel free to check it out and let me know if there is a book on the list that you simply must have for your very own. Note: I will be adding to the list for the next couple of months, so check back often!

Most of the books I read these days are eAudios or eBooks, mostly borrowed from the library, and I've begun to add those to my LT library, marking them as "borrowed," so that they count on the ER algorithm.
