About meLibraryThing ID: 10109

About my libraryI guess this is a mixed slice of my library. The fiction - with a few exceptions - is the last five years at most, I moved house then and gave many books away. The non-fiction goes much further back and has been tracked in a series of software programs: a home-cured Access database; Scholar's Aid, a much cheaper EndNote type of software; then Book Collector.

Updating nearly a year on, I've now entered all but a couple of bookcases and a few storage boxes from the house here so this is the most complete record of my library. Actually that of my wife and myself as I couldn't see any obvious way to cleanly separate them so some are hers, some are mine and many are 'ours'.
