About meI'm a 60 year old "flower child" very close to becoming an old fart! I grew up in a small Texas town, moved away to college and have been a librarian for the past 30+ years. I live in downtown Dallas, work for the local newspaper and feel sure that if I just set my mind to it, I CAN lose that excess 25 pounds.

About my libraryI have many "first gay novels" that appeared in the mid to late seventies. Gay novels were an event back then, especially those that garnered attention in the non-gay press: FAGGOT, DANCER FROM THE DANCE and others. These days you can't swing a cat in a bookstore without knocking over a whole rack of gay novels. I know that's progress, but, gee whiz, Wally, I miss the old days.

These days I buy very little fiction, but I use the Dallas Public Library heavily. Books that I read but do not buy are tagged READONLY in my library.

I also track movies I've watched with a NETFLIX tag, and have my CD's cataloged with a CD tag.

I always get a kick out of finding that someone in Library Thing has the same weird book that I do.
