About My Library
A guide to some of my tags:

"borrowed" = books I don't own but have read
"borrowed audiobook" = same thing but in audio format

"tbr" = books I actually own and intend to read

"read20xx" = shows what year I read the book

"currently reading" = shows, um, books I'm currently reading

"house collection" = I live in my childhood home with my Aged Parent. Many of the books in the house have (from my perspective) just always been there or have appeared over the years. I don't consider them "mine" in that I have collected them but they are "mine" in that they inhabit the same space as me.

Books I have heard or read about

See my other LT account (brewergirl-wishlist) for books that I have heard or read about and may want to investigate.

I don't have any qualms about listing library books and other non-owned books that I've read in my LT library, but I drew the line at listing books that I haven't read AND don't own.

Wiki Page

I'm also trying to find a good way to use my WikiThing page. Keeping my wishlist there wasn't a rousing success (too difficult to keep updated), so right now I'm using it to make lists of my favorite books and series, what my book group has read, etc.

Reading Timeline

I am still experimenting with a reading timeline. Not a timeline of when I read something - rather, a timeline of events about which I have read. Sometimes when I read a history or historical fiction, I lose track of what else was happening in the world at that time - or how it overlaps with something else that I have read. This is my current timeline: My Reading in History.

About Me
Here are my efforts to read books that I already own but haven't yet read:
* My 2012 thread on BOMBS 2012 (Books Off My Book Shelf)
* My 2013 thread on ROOT 2013 (Read Our Own Tomes)
* My 2014 thread on ROOT 2014 (Read Our Own Tomes)
* My 2015 thread on ROOT 2015 (Read Our Own Tomes)
* My 2016 thread on ROOT 2016 (Read Our Own Tomes)
* My 2017 thread on ROOT 2017 (Read Our Own Tomes)
*My 2018 thread on ROOT 2018 (Read Our Own Romes)

... and I also track my reading in the 75 Book Challenge group:
* My 2013 thread on 75 Book Challenge group
* My 2014 thread on 75 Book Challenge group
* My 2015 thread on 75 Book Challenge group
* My 2016 thread on 75 Book Challenge group
* My 2017 thread on 75 Book Challenge group
*My 2018 thread on 75 Book Challenge group
