About meI am an OSU grad, a Mormon, a government worker, and a total geek. I only review books I've read recently, I design t-shirts, and I am addicted to Netflix instant and to tagging author genders on LT. And I love reading, woot.

I am also a... bit of a nerd.



About my libraryMy library (which contains only books I physically own - no wishlist items, no freebie downloads sitting on my hard drive) is growing as I move books from my mom's house to my apartment. I own many, many books, and as they move here, they get added. I will also be adding lots that I buy, because I am an addict. If there were a Netflix for books I would have, like, the ten-at-a-time subscription. ^_^

My categories are pretty straightforward - I like to keep track of where things were bought, when I read them, and so forth. My "least favorites" are there solely to exclude them from recommendations; I don't believe my English professor's choices and my inability to sell books back at the end of term should condemn me to an eternity of bad advice.

My tags are also straightforward; I don't have a special location tracking system or anything (I keep moving the books around, so the categories for locations are pretty much a joke at the moment.)

I am weirded out that I share just 80 books with any one other Thingamabrarian. That's about 20% of my library. I feel this makes me oddly unique, especially considering how I own, e.g., nearly every book that a Larry Niven fan or intermediate Russian learner can be expected to, and most everything written by Orson Scott Card, and most of the New Jedi Order books. And all that Dilbert! I am a nuclear snowflake, I tell you. Nuclear.

Hi Sarah,

I notice you have a copy of Oxford Russian Grammar and Verbs, which I also have.

Are you still studying Russian? If so, you might find Practical Russian Reader helpful. It is a new book of Russian short stories with helpful exercises.

Let me know what you think of it?

i'm sure we do share books; i've not entered most of my collection, yet. :)
good one on you. though i know your listings on here represent merely a fragment of your library (much less the books you've read), your profile is impetus for me to get busy and catalog all my books in some sane manner.
