About my libraryThis is round two of my library-- I sold all my books about 5 years ago when I moved into a closet. I love books, however, and continue to read and collect them. I'm starting to add the books from my "former library" and tagging them as such.

I have also made it a project to change the dates to the original publication dates, and not the date the particular edition was published (in English, if that's available or relevant). I'm apologizing ahead of time to combiners for whom this will possibly be a PITA. It's just that I am interested to see which books were published around the time of which others, and I hate to see dates on books that are later than the dates I originally read them.
