About meI've been a bookseller for over twenty years and I'm really good for nothing else.

About my libraryIt has a life of it's own. I'm sorry to say that everything in the "your library collection" is also in the house. I had to move once because the weight of the books cause the floor of my house to drop about four inches below the adjoining walls.

The collections in my catalog:

Your library: my actual library of my actual books. All present and accounted for and taking up a ridiculous amount of space.

Arcs: Galleys, advanced review copies, bound manuscripts, and otherwise not-quite-finished.

Audio Books on tape, CD, iTunes--and because The Arkangel Shakespeare deserved it's own special place.

Wishlist: This is more of a "I might be interested" list than a "I want that" list. I add books as they capture my attention from reviews or recommendations. I also use this list to keep track of the entire list of published books by authors I am interested in. I take a completist view towards my favorite authors, so I like to know which books I might still be missing from my real world library.

Little Library: I recently joined the Little Library movement when I put a lending library at the end of my driveway, across from the community boat dock. So these are books I've put there to be taken, (they are not always returned.)

Here's a video tour of the library, where it is distressingly obvious how little housekeeping I do.
