About meLifelong bibliophile. I mostly read genre literature: science fiction, fantasy, horror, crime/mystery, and pulp fiction, among others.

I'm a voracious reader and a fairly prolific reviewer. Please check out my book review blog, Tales from the Bookworm's Lair (URL listed below), for some of my recent book reviews.

About my libraryTo the best of my knowledge, all of the books in my library are present in this catalogue. Whew! All of the books entered are ones I actually currently own, not ones I'd like to purchase, or have read, or checked out of the library. The only exceptions are a handful of books I have written reviews of but no longer own; these are in the collection "Reviewed but unowned."

My library is heavily weighted toward speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, and horror). I also have a fairly large collection of pulp fiction, men's adventure novels, and historical non-fiction, as well as a large role-playing games collection. My non-fiction collection is a bit sparse because I use the library for most of my non-fiction.

I'm always interested in conversing with folks about books, so feel free to drop me a line if you see anything that catches your fancy in my library. I appreciate feedback about my reviews as well.

Diligent readers and observant cyber-stalkers will note the tag "to be read." This is not one I'm proud of, but it had to be done. Of all the books in my collection, I currently plan to read (or re-read) around 3000 of those. Ugh. That's a lot. One heck of a lot. But like many bibliophiles, I buy more books than I can conveniently read. I have made a concerted effort to go through my entire catalogue and determine if the "to be read" tag applies; in most cases, I have rated all the books that I have already read (or at least those I clearly remember reading).

I am enjoying the recently added feature that lists the books you are currently reading on your profile page. My plan is to keep that updated as I finish books and start new ones. As you can see from that list, I read a number of books simultaneously. I find that this keeps my interest at a higher level and allows me to read books from multiple genres and series at the same time.
