About meMaking progress on all fronts, sometimes not quickly enough. But I'm trying!

My goal is to catalog all of the books I own: at home, at our condo, in the garages of each, and in boxes. Most of the books are mine; a few belong to my husband -- but he'd have disposed of them by now; essentially, they've become mine. Others were discarded by my daughter, and are tagged with her name in case she ever wants to reclaim them. I started to keep track of what I've been reading on my LT wiki page, but haven't updated it consistently. At some point, I hope to make collections of "Read in {YEAR}" as I continue to enter books. I've also decided to add books to my "read but unowned" collection, only as I serendipitously land on the page of a book I've read and that I wish to record.

I hope to have accurate data in my catalog, so please contact me if you find an error.
