About My Library
“Looks can be deceiving,” and “Don’t judge a book[-lover] by its cover[s].”

The catalog: Not one Member’s, but a family’s, including ancestors. Never disciplined or limited to specific topics, with some diversions. Hence, the amalgamated cookbooks, Batman comic collections, political theory, YA fantasy fiction, Western European languages and history, cozies, historic fiction, Gothic horrors, suspense / spy thrillers, and postmodern literature each have a place. In a sense, the books have gathered to collect themselves; we’re “just bookkeepers.” Many kids’ and YA titles are left from successive childhoods, or came (with renewed fascination) as kids respectively reached appropriate ages. It could get tricky if somebody moves out and wants to take “his” or “her” books with them.

The result? All over the place on breadth and depth, with widely variable results. Mostly looking for two things in any given book: (1) is it “really good” (a subjective standard, if there ever was one); or (2) does it look “interesting” (certainly no more precise). Often disappointed on the latter measure, but there are still plenty of “interesting” books we may never live to find out are also “really good.”
