About my libraryI'm still trying to figure out how to use the LT features to organize everything. For now:

Collections
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Collections are not mutually exclusive.

- Your Library: Contains books I currently own.
- Read But Unowned: Self-explanatory. The bulk of the books are here.
- Nonfiction: Self-explanatory
- Technical Books: Textbooks, computer books, etc.
- Wishlist: Books I hope to read one day (probably doesn't include books I own but have not yet read).
- Currently Reading: Self-explanatory
- To Read: Nothing in here yet, but will likely have a "queue" of about 4-5 books, indicating the next few books I plan to read. I expect the *Wishlist* to get very big, so this is intended for more short-term.
- Favorite: Haven't used it yet.

(Personal) Recommendations
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm hoping I can figure out a way to manage recommendations people give me. My first attempt would be simply to have books in my Wishlist tagged with the names of the people who recommend it to me.
