About My Library
These are all books I own, somehow or another. There's a couple of others I really thought I owned, but apparently don't, but otherwise this is complete, modulo a shelf I forgot about at my parents' house.

The tagging's a little spotty, as are the ratings [though they're getting better]... I'll fill it in as I'm moved.

I think most of my tags are self-evident, but unread&shelved are books that I haven't read but aren't really on my pile... either gifts gone wrong [grandparents can be strange], heavier things for a later time, some referency sorts of things, and things that I'd only ever read a bit of at a time. Nothing wrong with them, but having them on the To Be Read shelf makes me sort of anxious. ;^)

I started keeping a list of what I'd read in 2004; the date tags record reads since then [and so are not necessarily the first read of a given book]. They're also not everything I've read... library stuff and things like that don't show up here.
About Me
I'm math faculty with wide ranging tastes in books. I'll try most anything once, and love the mind-candy with as much abandon as the deep and moving stuff. [I have generally absolved myself of having to read things written before 1900, but will occasionally be convinced.] That said, I have a penchant for SF and Fantasy, a warm place in my heart for children's books, and a weakness for beautiful prose. And, of course, I'm a bit of a fangirl here and there.
