About meA small, feisty cantaloupe who reads. Major enthusiasms seem to run on a near-annual cycle and have lately included Sherlock Holmes, Victorian pastiche, sea novels, the Napoleonic Wars, and Doctor Who, but rarely all at once.

About my libraryI use LT as a reading log. I kept fairly good paper records as far back as 1997, so I've entered what I have listed and have given ratings to the best of my ability. Tags with dates prior to 1997 are best guesses.
