About meA home librarian managing collections for three bibliophiles and our friends.

About my libraryCOLLECTIONS

I use Your library to combine my Home shelves and ebooks saved on any device in my possession. (Cataloguing our home libraries is an ongoing process, so neither is complete.) Materials within Wishlist are those I intend to check out from libraries, purchase when/if able, or request as gifts; tags within the collection show my intentions.

My ratings are based on emotions so are subject to change at any time. As my reviews are based on thoughts, feelings, and my skills for expressing both, those are also subject to change.


Works are tagged for multiple purposes simultaneously. Duplication between tags and item descriptions such as media type is deliberate.

My tag list includes acronyms, mostly for works featuring LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, and queer/questioning) characters and/or themes. "mlm" is my current attempt to bring together the gay, mm romance, shounen-ai, yaoi, and similar tags in my library. However, work that only features non-romantic MSM (men who have sex with men) might be excluded. To me, "mlm" means "masc people who love (romantically) masc people".

I'm currently using "wlw" instead of "ff" for fem-fem romances because of the former's popularity. Differentiating between "fm" and "mf" romances become annoying, so those works are tagged with "romance > heterosexual" until I find a better term.

"magicians" is for characters: mages, sorcerers, witches, and wizards.
