About My Library

Note, December 2023: I am cataloging my late parents' books. (You can see where my brother and I got our taste in reading and, more broadly, our personal interests.) Because I'm adding a lot of books I am not checking all the details. I'm trying to make the covers accurate (in part so they are easy to lay our hands on later), correct titles and authors (according to the editions I have) and some other things, but I am not checking number of pages, publication dates, ISBNs, etc. unless they are obviously out of sync with what I'm adding. The goal is to upload as much as I can, then check the fine details later, mostly as they will be read or given away.

I used to have 400 books, which are still in my catalog, but most were water damaged after Hurricane Sandy. A few have been replaced and are now in the "New List after Sandy" collection.

About Me
English major with a techie side and a career in non-profits.

Pedestrian advocate. Enjoys walking in parks, looking for infrastructure.


Cataloging on LT made me realize how diverse my reading has been.
