About my libraryI have included books I've read as well as own so I can keep track of what I've read (as memory seems to be getting worse) but the borrowed ones are tagged/collected as such.

I also have a big wishlist, plus I've included books I own from before the age of 18 (Collection is My Childhood books) and my son's books, though this collection is not up to date and I may well need to convert that to his own account
