About meI really should be working ...

About my libraryIt's far from complete, but I've tried to re-construct 30+ years of reading. The 'Your Library' collection is what is actually on my shelves, which I try to keep to a minimum. So these tend to be books that I really thought were worth keeping. 'To Read' are books that are in my library that I have yet to read. 'Wishlist' are books that I think I would like to read, but are not in my library. The other categories are self-explanatory.

Included in the library are books I remember reading as a teen, though not as a child; hence a few things that I'm almost embarrassed to put on here. But this does not include Asterix, Tintin, and Pogo which are classics and well worth reading at any age.
