About my libraryMy library is a record of books that I have read (owned but not unowned) and books on my shelf that I have not yet read. Books that I have read but have either borrowed or given away are reflected in my Read and also Read, But Unowned collections.My wishlist is books that I want to read but do not yet own. I am also keeping track of books that I read with my two sons, and the books that they own, along with my husband's books (which I sometimes read.)

I am very slowly going back to add books that I have read in the past. My current books are recorded, but it is taking some time to add books read prior to 2010. I have always been a voracious reader, and I know that over the years I have read many, many more books than I have listed. As I never kept track, it is difficult to remember particular books unless they made a lasting impression.

My library contains mainly mystery with some science fiction/fantasy thrown in. I particularly enjoy British mysteries and dystopian science fiction. I also have a lot of children's books and now young adult books that I enjoy with my 2 sons. I am trying to catch up on the classics that I was not required to read in school, and am also adding some fiction best-sellers to the mix.
