About meI am a 39 year old female who is currently working full time and attending college (currently in my Senior year). I am pursuing a Magor in English and a Minor in Political Science. I'm considering following that with a Masters in Library Science, but haven't fully committed to that yet. I plan on spending some more time browsing around the Librarians who LibraryThing group to ferret out the pros and cons of that decision.
Reading has been a long time passion of mine, as well as a love of writing. It's fair to say the reading aspect is a whole lot easier to excel at than the writing. However, I intend to continue plugging away at both. I am ashamed to admit that both of these activities have been ignored too much lately because of my addiction to Pogo.com. But I should at least get partial credit since I do play a lot of word-based games there. Good News/Bad News - they recently added Scrabble. That is going to make the weaning process even that much more difficult. Hopefully, I'll find some LT friends who can help encourage me to maintain a healthy balance between mindless (yet stress reducing) game-play time and mind enhancing literary pursuits.
About my libraryMy entries in LibraryThing reflect the books I actually own. To date, I have 99% of my books cataloged. I know there a few scattered around that I have over-looked or forgotten and am currently trying to round them all up. That said, there is still some fine-tuning I want to do which includes:
Adding reviews about books I've read in the past.
Adding Summary Descriptions to my entries.
Adding Reading Dates of previously read books.
Cleaning up and Better Organizing my Tags.
Adding more of my Favorite Authors.
And bunches of other things I haven't even realized I could do yet.
Oh yeah, and although my books are mostly caught up, there are some Magazine Collections I want to start adding in the near future as well.
