About meI like novels of most genres -- I'm not keen on horror or explicit crime -- and non-fiction books including biography. I'm not great with books about ideas, though, they tend to annoy me. I'd rather read War and Peace again than some book on whether the internet is destroying our attention spans.

About my librarySo far I have catalogued: my TBR pile; about the first five shelves in my parents' library (but only my own books or ones I've read); and books I have read recently. I have also imported a list of about 800 books which I made some years ago in my flat in Cambridge -- it wasn't all the books I had there, but it was the majority of them. I intend to continue cataloguing my books in my parents' library, to continue to add books I acquire or borrow, and at some point to add my academic library too. (But not until I've thought through the implications of doing it in LibraryThing not EndNote.) Also when I get somewhere to live I will do my main paperback library, which is currently stored in boxes at my parents' house, and which is likely to have quite a bit of overlap with the 800-ish books in my old catalogue.
