About meThe books should tell you everything you need to know.

About my libraryThe books in my library represent a concerted attempt by myself to remember and list everything I have read since I was about 12 (hence things like Piers Anthony appear...which I would NEVER read these days). I have to admit that I am pretty disappointed with the total, even though I am sure that the list is not complete. Everyone has their thing that they are good at; reading a lot is mine. It is a little more respectable if you add the five times I read ever Anne McCaffrey novel in my teens, and the three times I've read every Elizabeth Peters novel, every Dorothy L. Sayers novel or anything by Georgette Heyer. I figure you that you can add at least ten to the total for Mairelon the Magician and charmed Life, both of which I first read in fifth grade, and I must have read Dragonsinger at least a dozen times as well. Pretty much anything that is worth reading, I've read twice--except Les Miserables.

UPDATE! About to embark on a major book purge! My living room is full of stacks of books waiting to leave the house. Still have more books than will fit on my bookshelves is a serious life dilemma. Does one purchase more bookshelves or keep fewer books?
