About meLife currently very much in transition, and account upkeep reflects that. I haven't stopped reading (ha! still breathing, too), but record-keeping has clearly fallen by the wayside. "Stuff" happened in 2013-14 that but everything but essentials on hold.

Innumerable books (and other media) are uncatalogued. Even more need to be deleted. Duplicate central, most of which is inaccurate. I think about fixing all this, and then I realize I could be reading.

Also: my books are in two different physical locations, miles and miles apart, pending me acquiring more bookshelves. This just gets more interesting (or not).

I still put two spaces after periods, and I also use Oxford commas.

About my libraryThe library represented here, at this point, is my library through a scanner darkly. Unfathomable numbers of books are not cataloged. Lots of deleting needs to happen. For reasons unrelated to The Death of the Book or Deep Moral Feelings (though I respect those who feel this way), I no longer read ebooks (but there are a lot in the catalog as it is now; the ongoing culling process of books-out is a way of convincing myself to get rid of some stuff to replace some of the ebooks with physical copies, using trade credit).

Books read in 2013 are in "Books Read in 2013" folder. Books read in 2012 are in a list pending me doing something constructive with them. This is not a good time to hold your breath.
