About my libraryA way to keep track of the books I have read for pleasure since the beginning of 2006, the catalogue does not include any of the publications I read or use professionally, like the hundreds of field guides at home. Some of the volumes are on my shelves, but I prefer to recycle what I can. I like to enjoy books pushed into my hands by friends, borrow those that jump off their shelves or use public libraries, used bookstores and charity shops. I only keep hold of reference books, poetry and anything that I am sure I will want to read again.
