About meInitially I started cataloging my books on Library Thing so I would know exactly how many books there were in my very large TBR pile. I hoped that by knowing how many unread books there were in my apartment it would curb my book buying.( I buy 2-3 times as many books in a year as I actually read) It hasn't worked.
About my libraryI like to collect publishers series -- Persephone books, New York Review Children's Books, Collector's Wodehouse, etc. I also collect graphic novels, illustrated children's books and books about New York City.
