About my libraryI'm relatively careless about my book data on this account, which is where I post reviews, keep a wishlist, sometimes forget to remove books I give away, etc. I also have another account where I'm cataloging all of the books in the house, both mine and my wife's, where I am much more particular about getting the publication/physical data right, as a way of coming to terms with just how many books we have in here, how much they weigh, how much space they take up, etc.

The photo above is my library circa 2008. It's grown since then, and also merged with my now wife's substantial collection.
