About meA student of medieval literature who nearly became a librarian but ended up a priest. Currently taking some time out, living in a community, where my particular responsibility is to look after... the library!

About my libraryAfter over 7 years of membership of LT, I have finally managed to finish adding all my books to the catalogue. There is still plenty of work to be done adding details, but the books now listed in 'My Library' correspond more or less with all those I own.

It's not a particularly large collection by LT standards, but large enough when it comes to finding shelf space for everything (or when it comes to having to pack and move!). As well as a large selection of fiction (contemporary and literary fiction as well as detective, historical, historical detective, fantasy and a little sci-fi) , I have substantial collections in two professional areas of interest: medieval studies (language, literature and history, palaeography) and theology (including lots of books reference and resource books for the working minister). I also still have most of my childhood books in my collection, and have added some more recent children's and young adult books to those.

Library books and other borrowed books, once returned, are in the collection 'Read but unowned'. In time I may backdate this collection to add more of my past reading.

My 'Wishlist' collection is not much used - I may remove it altogether, as I am mainly using my Bookmooch account for my wishlist.
