About my libraryHelp welcome
I welcome suggestions to improve any aspect of my catalog, including my reviews.

My use of at least some of my tags is explained on my LT wiki page.

Some of my 'reviews' are not really reviews, but simply contain what I think is useful information about the work or its constituent books. I intend someday to move all this sort of thing to Common Knowledge and remove such reviews.

Almost all books are in now and new ones get added as they come.

This is not simply my library, but the library of a long-standing bonded pair, so although there are differences of interest, it is hard to keep things separate.
The books that are principally mine reflect various interests that I concentrated on at different times, though generally, one thing lead to another, so there is some sort of system to it.
