About my librarySlowly, very slowly, uploading all the books in our (mine and my mum's) house. I like to have the correct covers in decent quality (I am deeply superficial), and thus have devoted untold hours of my life to photographing/scanning books, continuing long past the point at which this ceases to be fun.
