About my libraryMy library is somewhat eclectic. This eclecticity (I’m sure that’s not a word!) has lessened somewhat since 2007 when I embraced YA fiction and have concentrated on reading and purchasing books under this banner.

My physical library is ever expanding as I'm one of those book buying addicts who are so prevalent here on LibraryThing. I'm in great need of purchasing a new bookcase. Those that I have now, line the walls of what is a long narrow room that is essentially my bedroom but also doubles as a sitting room/library. I love waking up to my books (and probably spend too much time finding pleasure in staring at them!)

When first I joined LT, my online library consisted of only those book I physically owned, however, with the advent of 'collections' I now include books that I've read but don't own. I also have a wishlist but these book aren't included in my library (i.e. 'Your Library').

I rate books based on feelings rather than literary merit, although I have been known to take that into consideration. Since joining LT, I’ve become much more methodical about keeping track of what I read and when.

I’ve done a pretty good job of identifying which books I’ve read since 2005 and have placed them in collections according to year of reading. The collection of books marked as ‘read pre-2005’ is incomplete and will likely remain so. Of course, as I remember a book from my childhood or teen years I’ll be sure to add it to the list.

I still haven't entered all the books from my physical library to my LT library despite it being a new year's resolution for both 2010 and 2011. We'll see how I go completing that task in 2012.
