About meI am a retired Social Studies teacher who now has plenty of time to read..finally! Brooklyn born, I now live in a small city in Oklahoma. It's a bit difficult living here so the Internet, Reading, Librivox and LibraryThing help to keep me sane and connected.
About my libraryI catalogue only the books (read or unread) that I own (paperback, hardcover and electronic.) Thus my home library is the major source for my reading pleasure. While i prefer to read the physical book, the advent of e-books, allows me to own and read so many of the classics that I didn't have. Electronic books are a great gift and I will forever be thankful for Gutenberg, Kindle, and Apple's iBooks for its free or inexpensive offerings. A note of praise: Libarything has the most wonderful databases for cataloging my library.
