About My Library
Reflects the major interests throughout my life.

Until January 2007, the books listed here were strictly those I currently own. I have now modified my practice and added to my account books I have read before but do not own, tagged appropriately as @NOT OWNED and with a tag to indicate the circumstances, e.g. "read as a child", "sold on eBay" or "borrowed from library". Until March 2008 I also included wishlist books, tagged @WISHLIST, for practical reasons so that when reading a Talk thread I could just click on a book and add it; but now I have decided that this is too tenuous a link to such books and I have deleted them. It hasn't take me long to make up the numbers again through new acquisitions though.
