About meLike everyone here, visitor or member, I've been an avid reader since I was in diapers (well, my folks read to me) so I was doomed to be a bookaholic from an early age. I was weaned on my mother's historical novels in the 1950s (Slaughter, Yerby, van Wyck Mason, etc), read my way above my grade levels at the local library so my parents gave the library permission to let me browse through the "adult" section when I was barely in high school. There was never a time when I didn't have a book in being-read mode, though I have gone through dry spells, as well as times when I just could not stop reading. I would rather read than eat, housework takes second place to reading, and books are an addiction, reading is a passion.

About my libraryThis is a work in progress of the 4,000+ books I've read since September 1964. I started out just listing title & author, graduated to rating my reads, then the anal side of me took over and I started logging the date & month the book was read, that's why some books show dates and ratings and others don't. The list was logged in spiral notebooks until I bought my first computer in July 1997, then I entered the books I've read into an Approach database.

The bulk of my collection is in the romance genre, but there are also lots of mysteries, some SFF, a sprinkling of classics (Austen); for other genres I tend to read library or borrowed books.

I recently found out about LibraryThing and I think I'm going to have fun working on my database here - maybe, or maybe not, I'll think about doing a catalog of my book collection. Yikes - to date that contains roughly 6,800 titles with hundreds to be added. But you know, there's hardly anything more fun than messin' around with books (except maybe reading them).
