About meHi there and welcome to my profile page!

I'm a Book Addict! I love books, all kinds of books, and I love reading them.

I am a qualified librarian and I finishing up a degree in English Literature. In my spare time I run an Online Book Group which has been running successfully since 2005 - celebrating 5 years this year!!! I also love cats and spend a lot of time with mine.

All the books listed here are books that I own. I haven't the time to put them in separate collections, this is just one big collection of all the books I own. One day I will have time to add all the ebooks and audio books I have but since I can't scan them with the cat scanner that's too big a job for right now.

Attention Publishers:
We welcome the opportunity to review your books in our book group. Please contact me for more details of how to make that happen, either here or via the contact forms on the website listed below.

Online Book Group

About my libraryJuly 2010

Not really much of an update though I have just scanned quite a few books into my collection - just the books I've acquired since the last update. I hate not keeping this up to date as I like to scan them before I put them on the shelves otherwise they may never be seen again and may never get scanned! Been reading a lot of non-fiction lately so they have all just been added to the list. Lots of practical books :)

Wow I only seem to update this infrequently but that's fine since it's my private library catalog. The only thing that is not in this catalog is my ebook and audiobook collection because I can't scan them with the barcode scanner and I don't have time to do it manually or to track down ISBNs for them. If these books were included, my library catalog would be at least 2-3 times larger.

*Book Group plug*
I run an online book group site, and if anyone is interested in joining to chat about their favourite books or to join in the Book Group discussions, then you are welcome. We are in the process of selecting books for next year's Book Group which will be announced shortly. We are also featuring the Richard & Judy Book Club books starting with the New Writer's Book Club books October 2008+ and continuing on with the Christmas books and the main Richard and Judy list for 2009. We also feature several on-going reading challenges and seasonal challenges throughout the year, and sometime we talk about other things besides books! Site address is below.

September 2008
Well I have come a long way towards cataloging all of my books and I am trying to keep this up to date whenever I buy something new. My next challenge is to add the ebooks and audio books to my library but since there are rather a lot, it's a bit of a daunting task!

Btw I only catalog books that I OWN, everything you see here I have. I don't use this as a wishlist or to catalog books that I've read but don't actually own. This is a catalog of my collection.

February 2007
I just joined Librarything because I wanted an easy way to catalog all my books. I live inside my library. I have many many many books, lots of fiction, lots of non-fiction, australian books, Scottish books, american books, New Zealand books, lots of different genres, many cookbooks and craft books, health and fitness books, library science books, art books and well the list goes on. One day I will get around to cataloging them all... one day
