About meI love to read, and I read a lot. I haven't been tracking numbers lately, but I am still spending a lot of time reading, and acquiring way more books than I could possibly get to. Tell me, when I have so many books I want to read RIGHT NOW that I have trouble settling on any one book, why would I buy more? I don't know, but I keep doing it.

About my libraryI like a lot of different genres, but my favorites are science fiction, mystery, and general fiction. I especially like books with a feminist viewpoint, or at least good stong female characters. If it is well-written, I like it. There are so many books out there to read, I think I could read for hours every day and still have a long list of books I want to get to next. Not to mention the books I want to go back and read again! I am always buying books, so I never really get to the point where I have read all the books I have.

I am making some progress entering books, but I am still organizing the books I have. I was finally able to get most of my books out of storage this past year, but I quickly overfilled the available space, so I need more shelves again. I really want to add more shelves to my living room anyway, though, because I love the feeling of being surrounded by books, and I currently only have shelves on two walls.
