About meA former molecular biologist and professional stagehand turned software engineer pushed into management who can cook a pretty damn good meal, run a two-scene manual light board, sequence DNA, and build a half-way decent set of cabinets.
About my libraryNot even close to the biggest libraries, but it still seems plenty large to me. Especially when I think of the number of books I've sold or given away during various moves. But that's pretty much it, except for the odd book on loan to a friend, and the ever-continuing new acquisitions.
The non-fiction will probably never catch up to the fiction, but I seem to be reading more and more of it the farther I get from college and being forced to read so much of it. Now that I'm done cataloging, maybe I should get to work on building a new home for them...
Since I've joined Bookmooch to provide a home for the books I don't want to keep any longer but I still want to note them, all those books are "Read but unowned". Some retain the pre-collections tag of "Mooched Away". Unfortunately for the moochers, I want to keep most of the books I have. On the flip-side, it seems most of the stuff I don't want, somebody does, as it is almost always mooched within 2 days of posting.
