About My Library
My physical library started as merely a collection of fiction books and a few non-fiction that were interesting to me. Then, I determined that I wanted to try to write that next great novel.

This changed the complexion of the physical library. I can honestly break things down to writing reference, research subjects and fascinations, and fiction. My catalog consists of what I physcially own, save two collections: Read but not owned (library books, for the most part) and No Longer in Library (books I got rid of because they just didn't fit my idea of good books.) If a book was gotten rid of without any reading or review details, I've completely removed it from the library.

I've recently begun gathering digital books through both Google Play Books and Amazon Kindle. They have their own collection to track reading and such. I'll only be adding these as I read.

Just when I think I am done, I am finding books that aren't cataloged that I thought I had gotten.

Tagging pattern (usually):
Broad Category/Genre, Narrowed content, {series, place in series If applicable}, binding (soft or hard), if not read
About Me

Not a Yankee.
Not a Rebel.

A stuck in the middle of it type person. (Read: Born and Raised within 50 miles of Washington, DC.)

Scribbler, reader (duh), thinker.
(Website links to my blog designed to offer insights to other writers. Its all opinions.)

Outside of that, talk to me to find out more.
