About my library"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." - Mark Twain

"I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book." - Groucho Marx

I buy a lot of books, and my "to read" pile would probably last me for a decade or two at this point. Yet I continue to buy more books. I think that I might have a mild form of book hoarding, but I'm not alarmed. As my mom used to say when I was growing up, "Well, it could be worse. It could be drugs."

As I have moved cross-country once already and am preparing to possibly do so again in the next year or two, I have finally discovered the value of "traveling light." I have, therefore, mostly switched to ebooks, although occasionally I do buy paper books.

A few notes about my categories:

"Your Library" - physical books that I have read and currently own.

"eLibrary" - ebooks that I have read and own (there will be some duplicates with "Your Library," as I often buy a hard copy if I enjoy the ebook).

"TBA" - I own these in both ebook and physical book format but have not read the book yet.

Enjoyed reading your reviews and browsing a fine library. I gather from your review of THE PARTY IS OVER by Lofgren that you are a wee bit pessimistic. Now, there is really no reason to all of sudden get realistic. I think Liberals are not going to disappear, even though huge piles of money and blind minions are being thrown into the imaginary conflicts.

Anyway, no reason for discouragement! Perhaps Voltaire's Candide was right.
Hi Lissa,
I just posted a review of Off the Grid much like your assessment, so I thought I'd stop by. I see we share an interest in sociology and environmentalism. I'll be poking around on your shelves, and will try not to disturb the cats. I had to laugh when I saw your total 'currently reading.' I thought I was bad hovering around a dozen, which is actually low reporting, as my library card always has 30 or more titles on it. I'm swiping your Mark Twain quote.
And, like you, I recently found my spot in the sun on a Kentucky ridgetop. I'm enjoying the views so much I neglect the books.
I have several addictions besides books, and I always justify my purchases with the thought that I'm not wasting on drugs, booze or nicotine!
See ya 'round.
Not to let Elizabeth Berg's crummy book discourage me from reading (as if!), I just finished Next by James Hynes. Dream When You're Feeling Blue had one of the most awful endings I've ever read, and this book had one of the most riveting, fascinating, horrifying, and awe-inspiring endings I've ever read. What a book! What an author! It was absolutely fascinating from first page to the last, and I know the story will stay with me for a long, long time to come.
Just finished reading Dream When You're Feeling Blue by Elizabeth Berg and I agree 110% with your review! I don't know when I've been so disgusted with an ending.
Thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries! My kitties like to use books as pillows too.
