About meI am a librarian by profession and a self-professed book-a-holic. I have been reading voraciously since I was 10. I usually have about three books going at any given time. Also, I have no qualms about not finishing a book I do not like. Life is too short to read bad books!

About my libraryI am using LibraryThing to record everything that I have read. Due to a few moves, I have had to substantially reduce the number of books I own. However, I still want to keep track of what I have read and my thoughts regarding the book. I also keep track of my 'to read' list here. Everything is tagged appropriately. For books that I have read in the last few years, I have added a date tag.

Included here are books, books on CD and some music CD's. My primary reading interests are fantasy, mystery and biography.
