About My Library
YES I do own all of these books... Except for the ones under My Wishlist Collection. Yes, after 3 years of not having a Wishlist on here i finally relented and made one. Mainly to appease that insatiable "Ooooh! Gimme Gimme!" urge those of us with the Bibliomania/Bibliophilia gentle madness are prone to.

All items on here are present in my library and accounted for. (Well, *sideways smile*. Almost all of them!) I've been collecting books since I was about 5. No really, I have. I even have my first Dr. Seuss book. It's all here somewhere, everything is. Sometimes it just doesn't want to be found..."unripe mind apples"... do you think books have ghosts? Well, I suppose if you believe in Vitalism as it pertains to books, then when they fall off shelves, it means that they are trying to commit suicide (like I read in one of my many philosophy books somewhere) then maybe they -do- have ghosts. Which would make sense (to me, anyways) because there has always been a kind of ephemeral sense hanging around my library, a personality, and all those voices humming and singing and whispering their esoteric thoughts to me. Something to ponder on, in any case.

I can remember almost every book I've ever had in my library, although some of them have not been with me for quite sometime now and may not, unfortunately, remember me. They have since been placed into hands other than mine, in locations unknown. I am quite sure Lucien would know, I must remember to ask him next time I run into him in Dream's library.

As for My Library, it has recently spent a huge amount of time in boxes being relocated to another house, another bedroom, and different bookshelves. A new home. *sigh* So I am mostly using this website to catalog my books and enter their names as I go about my slow but deliberative pace of delightedly unpacking and shelving them. A bit like welcoming back old friends, no?

This is by any comprehensive means a rather minute representation of my expansive Library, so far... and the works cataloged are firstly recent purchases, or recently read (or devoured) so, for the present time, the most "accurate" glimpse of my taste would be to take a look at my tags and or/authors, I suppose.

They -are- an eccentric bunch, but then again so am I. :O)

RECENT UPDATE: Still wandering, wondering & pondering... Ever the ethereal enchants me and follows my hallows. I am still adrift and nomadic as ever; but aspire to carve myself a brighter future... Hopefully soon I will have time to update my reading thread with more but for now, Please don't give up on me. Comments are sometimes the sunshine that keeps me going, so please, Please, PLEASE KEEP LEAVING ME COMMENTS!!! (For the MOST CURRENT INFO READ MY GD READING THREAD). I apologize if it takes longer than usual to respond to any comments left! Please forgive the delay & know it's never intentional! :)

About Me




I am first and foremost an artist/writer/bibliophile/bibliomane... which means I spend a lot of time Here in My Head, and also inside books, libraries, book stores, music stores, art stores, etc. I have a voracious appetite for words and art... in fact, I think there are some who could verily present a most productive argument that I spend more time outside of reality than in it. They just may be right. I think even I could easily come up with a much more interesting reality.

oh wait... I already did.

In any case, although my personal collection is a rather ecclectic and strange one, I am first & foremost an AVID reader and welcome any comments, suggestions and observations any of you may have. Please feel free to leave an imprint on this page, or ramblings of the ink-style; all forms of communication on here will be most welcome! That is, if you should be so inclined. *smile*
