About meThe profile photo is Boots in repose. We have 4 cats. Between them there are 15 legs. My husband and I each have 2 legs. [UPDATE: we now have 4 + 1 cats! 19 legs]

I am a scientist looking to enrich her life through reading new and interesting books. When I was little, I wanted to be either an astronaut or a librarian -- can't remember which came first. Fear of flying (among other things) kept me from being an astronaut. LibraryThing is wonderful for the mildly compulsive, cataloging aspect of my nature. I joined LibraryThing when I purchased a Kindle. I wanted a way to view my library as a single unit, not hard copy vs. electronic. I also like seeing the covers.

About my libraryMy library contains books I own (both read and unread) as well as books I do not own but am sure I have read. The physically unowned books are in My Library, on the theory that if they have passed over my eyes and into my head, I "own" them on some level. This makes me feel good - that I have ownership of the ideas, even if I do not have a physical copy. I have not listed my professional books. There are also many books I have not entered, even though I have read them, because I don't remember them very well. My Wishlist is the only collection not included in My Library. I would use Wishlist more if I could exclude it from Collections, but "so it goes," to quote one of my favorite authors.

P.S. Please feel free to let me know if I have misspelled an author or title, or in some way incorrectly combined or separated my books on the main work pages. Thanks.
