About meI read a lot. Sometimes I check books out from the library, sometimes I buy them. Sometimes I borrow them from Emily. I clearly mark which is which.

Also, I have a commute, so I listen to books on CD. Those books are clearly marked, as well.

'Scool. I hardly expect everyone to be the zealous thingamabrarian I am! Good to see you here.
Am I correct in thinking we met in person once at the Occult Bookstore in Chicago?

I've enjoyed Elizabeth Peters so far, but I think it'll take me a long time to read through the quick and spirited Amelia Peabody books, because I've got them in slow rotation as light interludes among my other reading commitments.
As Once the Winged Energy of Delight

As once the winged energy of delight
carried you over childhood's dark abysses,
now beyond your own life build the great
arch of unimagined bridges.

Wonders happen if we can succeed
in passing through the harshest danger;
but only in a bright and purely granted
achievement can we realize the wonder.

To work with Things in the indescribable
relationship is not too hard for us;
the pattern grows more intricate and subtle,
and being swept along is not enough.

Take your practiced powers and stretch them out
until they span the chasm between two
contradictions...For the god
wants to know himself in you.

- Rainer Maria Rilke

I will. I just need some time in the same state as my library to expand it. ;-)
I think you need to expand your library a bit... ;-)
