About meI come from a long line of book "addicts". When my Great Grandmother came to OR as a young girl, each of the children were allowed to bring one toy/personal item with them...my Great Grandmother choose a book. I have my Great Grandmother's bookcase (which I treasure and will NEVER part with) that I always remember overflowing with books. I also remember going into my Grandmother's bedroom and seeing books spread all over the room...in bookcases, on the floor, on the nightstand. My dad built a special bookcase the length of the hallway for my mom's books when she filled up the bookcases he had built for her in the living room. When my parent's home was threatened with flooding, my dad "evacuated" his World Book Encyclopedias and Yearbooks in the first load. (I hope to inherit this collection one day. And no, I don't want a "new" copy, I want this collection.) My mom, uncle & aunt, sister, some cousins, a few of my cousin's children and I are doing our best to keep up the family legacy of book "addicts". What can I say...it's in the genes.
About my libraryToday (1/2/2010) I finished cataloging the "friends" I have in my library...excluding my "friends waiting to be met"...aka the TBR stacks. They are next to be cataloged. It will be scary to put a number to those poor neglected friends...UPDATE: I started cataloging my TBR stackes...one bookcase down, 2 more to go. 104 books in the first bookcase and it had some of the larger books. I'll estimate 350 friends. =-O UPDATE (12/12/2010): I finished adding the friends from Mt TBR. The current elevation is 298. YIKES...but at least I'm still under the 300 mark...at least for the moment. ;->
