About my libraryVery diverse. Books are a weakness. Movers hate packing and loading my belongings. As a child, I was obsessed with horses and read everything possible. As a teen, I was heavily into fantasy books. I was genre-addled for a few years but now I think I've embraced my curiosity in all things. I own a large number of discarded books from my hometown library and I'm constantly buying books on Amazon or in thrift stores.
