About my libraryIt's split between bookshelves and boxes in the basement. Actually plastic waterproof containers. I had a bad experience with water damage once before. My library has a lot of military history and SF in it, but there is lots of other stuff mixed in.

If a book has a rating I've read it but don't necessarily still have a copy. If it has not been rated that means I own it and haven’t read it. That category is embarrassingly high; it seems I get books much faster then I can read them
