About meTechnical writer and writer-writer. Likes to read children's books and call it 'research'.

About my libraryMostly genre or period lit, children's books and nonfiction. Reflects my PhD subject (Imagism), earlier academic interest (medieval history), and current writing interest (YA set in the 18th century).

Mostly secondhand, though if I like a living author I do try to buy at least some of his or her books new (or get them from the library).

Mostly read... though only because my TBR mountain isn't catalogued.

'Your Library' has the books I physically possess. 'Read but Unowned' contains borrowed books and discards. For space reasons, I'm trying to be more stringent in what I keep.
