About meI am a flying pagelet. I am a drop case a. I like to be on my friend's libraries. I swear margins for a living, die on a sinful serif, live a life of perils between hanging indents and pica gangs.

About my libraryMy LT library is not a library of owned books but of those books I came across during my life, a b(ibl)iography. This means either read/studied books (some of them partially read), reference works that I use(d), and books which I wish I'd own/read/consult (to be lent or bought).

Other status tags: read me again, own:_place_, releasable (write to me if you want one of those),

I frequently tag according to where and when, i.e. sXX, 1930s, sXX, France or Bretagne (use local-language toponyms as far as possible).

In my reviews I sometimes extract quotations. I either give the page number from which it was extracted (in my edition) or indicate it with >> (beginning sentences) and/or (closing paragaphs) as appropriate.

Future tagging scheme: places go away, since supported in common knowledge. Anything that relates to the particular edition or my relation with it goes into namespaces, such as S: for status (possession, availability -decoupled from possession-, release plans), P: for physical properties (dedicated, delicated -smell-, typography or layout), LT: for pending LT tasks (combine, review, date, find cover), W: for my relation with the book (read, studied, reference). Should paste here a template string for tagging. And probably move wishes away to another account
