About My Library
Work In Progress. Most are in boxes stuffed in every corner of my house. Quite a lot are in storage (I'm still going through those and entering them as I can). Obviously I buy (or get as gifts) way more books than I can read. This year I'm doing my best to work through some of my amazingly long TBR list (but I keep rereading some of my favorite books instead!).

Books tagged "reading" are at the front of my TBR list. The number usually hovers around 500. Okay, maybe 800 would be more accurate. ;)

Books tagged "contemporary" are set anytime after World War II, books tagged "historical" predate World War II.

Covers used aren't necessarily the ones from my editions. I usually pick my favorite cover from all editions. I especially love (and miss!) the older, sexier covers on romance novels.

No ratings listed. I rate books at Amazon to improve my recs there.

I love to read (and collect!) books with characters named "Amanda" or "Mandy", so if you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Currently Reading:
Laurell K. Hamilton - The Lunatic Cafe

Update: 12/13/08 - I just got out of the hospital after a three week stint. I'm at home recovering, and catching up on my reading!
