About my libraryI'll read just about anything. My favorites are mysteries, politics (mostly local), sports (fiction and non-fiction), humor and some history. I started out just listing the books I have at home, then began adding any book I ever read, even though I don't own it anymore. It's been great to have my catalogue handy when I want to recall a book that has slipped my mind. My "wishlist" list is now completely out of control.
