About meMy catalogue shows an obvious pronounced slant towards SF,comics, art & music.
I enjoy books of a literary bent as well. The list is only of books I have read (sometimes partially, as with short story compilations, for example), and those which I regard as reference.
I don't put books in "Currently Reading". That's almost a guarantee that I wont finish them. It's just something I know now about myself.
I've added a "no longer owned" tag to my books, so I don't go crazy looking for books I don't have.
The "oxidized copy" tag is for books that are in an advanced state of decay, that I give a hero's send off to. I read them one last time, sometimes with pages dropping out and crumbling in my hands as I complete them. That's seems a fitting tribute to the life of a book.
It's been years on LT, and I still like the concept. I confess, I cannot engage in reading like I could a while ago. I hope to report otherwise in the future- it is one of life's great pleasures...
UPDATE: Still floating about in 2021. Additions to the library are likely current...
