About meCard carrying book junkie. Love reading and really love books but don't have nearly as much time as I'd like to indulge myself . . . then again who does?

I read a wide variety of genres (with the exception of romance, chick lit, horror and westerns), and have a leaning more toward fiction than nonfiction. I'm also a BookCrosser, and am listed on BookMooch.

About my libraryDefinitely not enough shelf space . . . the number of books (usually double stacked) on them keeps growing despite the fact I pass on most of my books to others once I've read them. They just keep rolling in the door faster than I can read them!

This is really akin to a joint account, in that books listed on LT have either been read by myself or my partner, or they are waiting on the shelves to be read. Definitely no wish list books included.
