About My Library
I'm adding to this as I get the urge, which I seem to have quite a bit. I'll probably move to a paid account so I can add more of my books. I am surprised at how many connections I get - mostly for C.J. Cherryh and Robin Hobb. I've stopped adding other fantasy and started picking though my shelves for other material. I'll be interested to see just how much overlap my collection my show. I'm a little shocked myself. I never thought of myself as that much of a fantasy fan, but that seems to be what connects me to others on the site so far. There are many more books in my house.
Well, I did go to a lifetime account, and have been adding books, but no tags as yet. I've added a lot of fantasy and sf; i'm going to work on the mysteries and non-fiction. I found several duplicates in my collection; that may be one of the biggest values of this exercise for me, as I get rid of them and acquire more shelving space. I'm also fascinated at the titles only one or two other members own, and even more at those for which I am so far the only lister. Book gatherers are a varied lot.
About Me
I've been a life-long reader, since I was 5. Of course, since I have worked in a university library for many years I tend to read much more than I own. My collection of books are often gathered because the library did not have them; this accounts for some of the fantasy. I also have a few childhood books still around, and some that I bought because I wanted to have what I remembered from the small-town library of my childhood. I hoped to introduce my nieces to books I enjoyed, but our tastes, and certainly the cultural drives of my youth are different from those my nieces and great-niece feel.
