About meI am an avid reader and am constantly adding books to my collection. I try to read each day and all of my children enjoy reading. In fact, my oldest child wants to be an English professor.
About my libraryMy on-line catalogue of books only includes the ones that I own and have read over the past several years. Although I have been reading longer than that, I had taken a 'hiatus' from anything to do with 'just me' when my kids were small and was not able to do much reading.
I constantly have a to be read pile - usually over 25+.
After purchasing the same book on multiple occasions, I started to catalogue my books on my palm pilot. Since then I have added the LibraryThing catalogue and a catalogue on Barnes and Noble. Now, I just need to make sure I keep them in sync.
I like my books to be kept in good condition. I have only loaned them to family members and when I do, I give them a book mark and ask them to use it. I also ask that they do not eat food while reading the book. Yes, I know this is a little off the deep end but what can I say? Books are one of the few things I enjoy and collect.
