About My Library
The library will actually be getting a little smaller, as I get rid of some things I don't really need / want, and make a bit more shelf space. Or, it might get a little larger as I find things I never cataloged.

About Me
I’ve noticed that in the “about me” section, several folk have commented that their library can tell a visitor more about them than any paragraph they might write.

Well, true; a library is not a thing to be assembled all at once. Going through my shelves for cataloging, I see that I have serious books and silly books, scholarly books and speculative ones. Books bought new, books from thrift shops and used-book stores, books found at yard sales and rare books ordered from abroad; books handed down from my grand-parents’ and parents’ houses, books from my childhood or leftover text books from college, books from all the different phases and years of my life – thus far, at any rate. Some come and go; some stay, for an assortment of reasons, or none in particular. Some that were on my shelves when I started this are not listed, having been culled as I cataloged, as I’ve realized that I no longer need those particular books, though they were relevant at the time. A number have been added recently, after scanning the libraries of others, and realizing I need *that* book as well – I’m sure this is not uncommon!
