About meReading is the recurring theme of my life.

I have changed continents, careers, experienced family upheavals and traumas and have changed just about everything else in my life at one time or another, but through it all I've done it with a book in my hand and a couple more in my bag (and five next to my pillow and too many to count spilling out of the bookcases and boxes).

About my libraryI have always read, but my tastes have changed over the years.

My library reflects that: from the thrillers I devoured as a teenager through the mysteries that captivated me later, to the literary fiction that consumes me now.

I catalog those books in my library that are meaningful to me - a slow process - whether they are read on not.
I also catalog other books I read that I have borrowed - mostly from the public library, sometimes from friends - and use this to track my reading.
