- About My Library
- Abandoned as a child, I was raised by a pack of wild librarians.
I am dubious about some of my entries - geological maps, movies, music and suchlike. However, I figure a regular library would accession these, and I like to keep track of which ones I have.
I collect vampire and mummy movies, even atrociously bad ones, so their presence in my library doesn't necessarily indicate lack of taste. I hope.
All books, movies, etc. are things that are physically on the shelves (with the exception of a few that are out on loan or were accidentally entered twice). In other words, there are no "wish list" books or "read this but don't have a physical copy" books.
I think I'm getting the hang of properly combining books and authors; I probably caused trouble the first few times I tried, and if so I apologize.
Some of you are probably wondering how you got on my "interesting library" list. It's more or less like this:
1) If you put me on your interesting libraries list, or
2) If you show up on the "members with similar libraries" list, and you have books from seemingly wildly divergent categories (Georgette Heyer novels and calculus; egyptology and sewage treatment; Wicca and vertebrate paleontology), or
3) All libraries are interesting
About reviews: I have no claim to expert scholarship in any particular area; I just read books that seem interesting. As a result I often base my opionions on some subject on the last book I read on that topic. Thus all my reviews should be taken critically; it's possible I have no clue what I'm talking about.
PS: if you should happen to find bad data in my library - wrong ISBN, miscombined books, etc. - please feel free to let me know about it. And sorry it isn't more eclectic.
- About Me
- Old, fat, bald, and now retired nerd with just a touch of Asperger's Syndrome.
The Egyptologists among you will note I have spelled "setnakht" wrong. I had a moment of keyboard dyslexia the first time I typed it and now I am stuck with it that way. (To those friendly LT'ers who send me messages on how to change it - I know how to change it. However, I ended up using it as a handle on lots of Web sites, and I don't want to track every single one down and fix it).
Disambiguation notice: Although we share a name, and I have some D&D books, I am NOT the person who writes D&D modules.
