About My Library
When we moved to Canada, I had to leave most of my books back home. My catalog here is only of what we've bought or brought to Toronto since then. Eventually I'll add all of the stuff I left behind.

I decided to go for it and add all of our current library here, including the embarrassing stuff (have mercy), travel guides, dictionaries, and books that aren't really mine, but Val's.

Finally, I also decided I wanted to keep reviews of books I've read, but do not own, in a separate library. If you're curious, you can find them at http://www.librarything.com/profile/yorch_loaned
About Me
I'm a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Toronto. I study coordination in software development teams.

Besides reading, I'm very much into boardgames, which occupy nearly as much shelf space as my books. I like juggling, jogging, and playing the guitar, but I'm not really good at any of these things yet.

Val and I have a cat that turned down a promising career for a life of catnip and navel gazing.
