About meI'm a public librarian who was way too excited for my own good when I found out about LibraryThing. I was a strange kid--I tried to put Dewey numbers on my own books. :-)

About my libraryIt's very odd. I have had two great book purges in my life. The first one was when I was leaving 6th grade. I left my "babyish" books with my teacher for her classroom library (including some books I should have kept). The second was when I reluctantly realized there was just no way to keep all the books I scored when my college English department collectively discarded about 50 boxes of books. These days my collection is weeded regularly, so that my husband and I can fit both of our collections in our house. I have lots of science fiction, fantasy, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Doctor Who, and recently, tarot & various other occult things, since all things secret and forbidden and fantastic have always fascinated me. ("Occult" means "hidden", by the way, not "evil.") You'll also find things from the childish and silly to the tasteless and heretical. Sorry--I'm an omnivore. I read everything! (When will Tim let us add the food packages and milk carton brands we've read, I wonder?)

I have owned many of the book listed here, but may not own them right now. Due to space and money issues, I can't necessarily buy and keep all the books that I really enjoyed. They can be collected virtually instead, where they can reveal my actual reading patterns, versus my buying-and-never-quite-getting-to patterns.
