About me"Books Are Not Life but Then What Is?"

I'm a shameless bibliophile who will read just about anything, although I tend to prefer fiction to non-fiction.

The Bibliomaniac's Prayer

Keep me, I pray, in wisdom's way
That I may truths eternal seek;
I need protecting care to-day,--
My purse is light, my flesh is weak.
So banish from my erring heart
All baleful appetites and hints
Of Satan's fascinating art,
Of first editions, and of prints.
Direct me in some godly walk
Which leads away from bookish strife,
That I with pious deed and talk
May extra-illustrate my life.

But if, O Lord, it pleaseth Thee
To keep me in temptation's way,
I humbly ask that I may be
Most notably beset to-day;
Let my temptation be a book,
Which I shall purchase, hold, and keep,
Whereon when other men shall look,
They'll wail to know I got it cheap.
Oh, let it such a volume be
As in rare copperplates abounds,
Large paper, clean, and fair to see,
Uncut, unique, unknown to Lowndes.

(Eugene Field)

"I plan to read forever or die trying."

About my libraryMy personal library is fairly small and shall remain so until I've caught up on having actually read most of it. The books I have cataloged on here are a combination of ones that I own and ones that I've borrowed from the library, family, and friends. I have specified which are mine and which aren't in the Comments field and have sorted them into the Read But Unowned collection.

I want my library to represent not only the books that I physically own but my reading life, including children's books I loved while growing up and even the books that I've hated--basically, any book with which I have (or had) some kind of relationship.
