About My Library

'If I had known the world was ending, I would have brought better books.' - Dale Horvath, The Walking Dead

My collection is mostly genre or period lit, children's books and nonfiction. Specific interests include Imagism, haiku, the 18th century, vintage Puffins, Peacocks (Penguin's eclectic former YA imprint), medieval studies and Arthuriana.

'Your Library' has the books physically in my home. 'Read but Unowned' lists borrowed books and discards. For space reasons, I'm trying to buy less and use the public library more.

The catalogue doesn't include my TBR pile. As an incentive to keep the pile moving, I add books as I read them.

About Me
