About meBah, who cares about the person here?

I'm over-educated, over-literate, and usually under-critical of what I read. I read for pleasure, so a trashy easy-read that grips me is just as likely to be well received and well reviewed as something that I'm "supposed" to like or a book that is better crafted and constructed but that fails to grip.

About my libraryTagging my books will take a while... reviewing them even longer.

Uploading over 1,900 books at once (the actual library is larger, but some books are old enough they don't have ISBNs) is a pain for tags and things. Although I've read all of the books listed (except the ones that are dip-in resources of course) remembering them all well enough to review them and tag them... sorry that's not me.

I'm thinking about the tags too... Why are fantasy books not fiction? Why are Buffy books not contemporary and horror/fantasy and vampire?

Why are so many contemporary horror/fantasy books also in the detective genre?
