About meI'm a Kiwi in Amsterdam. Read a lot, own a little. Slowly working on evening those odds. I keep a separate LT account for reviews, as tikitu-reviews.

About my libraryI've only catalogued the books I have in Amsterdam, there are boxes in storage back in New Zealand.

Some of my more ideosyncratic tags:

"handbound": For some months after arriving in Amsterdam I had no money but a large print quota at the university. I made my own editions of a few from Project Gutenberg, and a couple of free reference works.

"tex": More propertly "TeX", the typesetting system I used for my unofficial editions.

"nederlands": Dutch language books. Apparently most of my Dutch collection aren't listed in the library LT knows about, but this might change eventually.

Tags starting with "via:" record recommendations; "from:" records kind people who have given me books (I started doing this quite late and have certainly missed some).

"small beer" is a publisher I'm particularly fond of, Small Beer Press.

I also use a couple of (perhaps broken) Dutch tags for loaning status, on the assumption that the LT statistics don't want to know.
