About meStill reading! And attempting to become a librarian for real... I need practice with reader's advisory, so you can ask me for recommendations, but I still mostly know about stuff I like to read. Which is why I need to practice and read more different stuff! I'm pretty good with LGBTQ fiction and nonfiction (I haven't read everything, but know where to find it).

About my libraryRight now I am mostly* adding nonfiction, children's books, collectible books, and favorite authors, because of space limitations (applies to physical books only, of course). I try to keep a complete and correct list of all my books on here, because otherwise I lose track of them. I don't do Wishlist or Currently Reading, because they are hard to keep up-to-date. The "Gone but not forgotten" collection contains books I gave away or lost or got rid of because they weren't very nice copies, and I intend to replace them at some point. My tags are not up to date and the old ones need to be redone. I try to keep book covers accurate, with only middling success. I have no method at all for ratings; basically I put whatever I felt like, or whatever I remember feeling, upon finishing the book. Sometimes they are weighted against similar books, such as books by the same author or in the same series. This works most of the time because I read a lot of genre fiction. I have no problem giving 5 stars to things I liked, even if they aren't great literature. I am not much of a reviewer.

*I still add fiction but am trying not to buy as much of it.
