About my libraryThis is primarily a virtual library. I used to have a fairly large collection of both professional books and those read for pleasure. When I became visually impaired and then disabled, I began to give away the professional books I could no longer read and no longer used, then slowly was able to let go of a lot of the books I'd been carting around with me for years. It's taken me about 20 years to reduce my standard print books to my collection of poetry books, a number of books on Buddhist and other forms of spiritual and meditation practice, my Pooh collection and assorted thises and thats with which I still can't part. I still have my entire Nero Wolfe collection, though it's visually quite inaccessible. Silly me. :)

I've begun to add some large print books and am developing a small library of audio books, a lot of them Terry Pratchett books I ordered from the UK before they became available in the US.

I include in my virtual library anything I have on my shelves in audio or print format as well as the books I've downloaded or taken from the local library or NLS. Just for my own pleasure I'm trying to remember and include books that I've read over the course of my life and no longer own.
