About meI'm a mumble-something geek with an unfortunate addiction to the written word. I've been reading since a teacher showed me how cool it was that the words "A red ball" matched the picture above them. I was initially sceptical about the reading thing because my father had done such a great job of reading books to me, but was won over by the red ball and final, exciting ending where I could identify Roger Red Hat.

The first book that I can clearly remember was "Where the Wild Things Are", but the book that shaped my young reading mind was "The Hobbit".

LibraryThing appeals because I can catalogue my books, export them into Excel for easier ticking off when I move house and find other people with a similar book addiction.

About my libraryMy library is constantly expanding out of its bookshelf space, despite my frequent vows not to buy more books. It's weighted towards the fantasy end of the fiction genres, but there is some sci-fi, crime, historical novels, childrens books and the odd classic. The non-fiction section is rather computer heavy (hazards of my profession), but I'm interested in medieval history, writing and media theory so it's not *all* computers. I'm trying to be logical in cataloging my library on here, working through the shelves in order, but it could take a while :-) It's not helped by my tendency to keep buying more books and reading them rather than inputting all the books that I already own!

As of August 2008 all my books had been catalogued, which means anything new on the list is a new book. As that showed up me buying 23 new books in three months, that may not be such a good thing...

Hi, I see that you own a Kindle. My book, The Book Traveller will be FREE to download on Friday 6 January and Saturday 7 January 2012.

I should be delighted if you would download a copy for a future read and perhaps review it on LT and Amazon for me.

I've been enjoying them also. I've only recently gotten back into reading super hero comics (typically I've read Vertigo titles). I was really excited when DC announced it was going to restart its universe. Some of the titles haven't really seemed to be restarts, and have left me feeling I was missing something. However, all have been good starting points.
Thanks for adding me to your interesting library list. I notice we share some of the new DC titles. What do you think of the DC 52 so far?
You need to use the "Add Manually" link under "Other Options". Once you have created it, you can combine it with other instances of the magazine.
Did I say thank you for finding my library interesting too? Thank you! Looking at your list, I'd have to say that you have good taste and I'm proud to be included in such august company.

Thanks for the interesting library add! I think I've lost your 75 books thread - sorry. Could you post the link on my profile and I will come and say hi.

Heather
Wow, thank you! I'm a bit new to the blogging thing (hence my temporary neglect of my LT threads, every post is taking ages while I'm getting used to it!) but I'm enjoying it! You should definitely try to work your way up the country a bit if you're here - and we're in the middle really, so it's not QUITE as far... :-)
Hello! Nice to see you on here, surrounded by books and everything! Hugely enjoyed meeting you at Redemption.

Was there really a Robin Hood?
*waves* I would have figured it out from your email address.

The scary thing is that I haven't gone back and added most of the books without ISBNs or the non-fiction, so my real library has at least twice as many volumes as are shown here. I'm working at weeding my books and putting them in order and then I'll go through and see what was left out.
Nice to "meet" you - I'll have to have a look at your library too :)
I've started a group thats dedicated just to discussing HP and the Deathly Hallows. its called HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS ONLY. We could all post about the last book there so that is will be contained and we won;t have to worry as much aobut spoilers. Join when you finish the book.
I look forward to finding the album you mentioned in "Music to Read by". I assume it is probably the lyrics in the back of "Magic's Price" put to music. I see you gave Vanyel 5 stars, as did I. What do you think of my review?
Thanks for joining the group! Feel free to invite your friends, start topics, and generally be as involved as you're interested in being.
Nice to see another Lynn Flewelling fan. She came to a convention in Western Australia a few years back and I've been hooked on her work ever since.
