About my libraryI love the public library, and almost all the books I read come from there. I own very few books, and they are all in the "owned" collection. "My library" contains books I've already read, plus those I currently have in my possession and available to read. "Try again" are library books that had to be returned before I could get them read. "Abandoned" are books that I gave up on in the middle and don't want back again.

Also, I love audio books, but don't generally differentiate between audio and print versions of a book. It makes no difference to me whether I "read" a book in print or audio, and it's none of your business, either. ;-)

Right now, my book world includes these titles:
