About my libraryThis isn't actually a catalog of books on my shelf, but of books I've read, as I am reading them. Therefore, there are books on here that are not actually mine while there are also many books on my shelves that are not included here. I'll read from just about any genre in the limited free time I have, but my favorites tend to be mysteries, science fiction, comic books, nonfiction, and the classics canon (especially Victorian-era British novels).

I have a background in early childhood education so my library contains a fairly large quantity of board books and picture books (and the occasional professional literature regarding child development and education). In the past, I had long commutes so I became a huge fan of audiobooks and still listen to them even though I'm not in the car as much.

Some of the time, I am making (slow) progress toward reading the books listed in 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. (Note: The original list has been revised to take away/add titles. If you count the number of books on both lists, it totals 1,297.)
