About meI've been a bookseller for over twenty years and I'm really good for nothing else.

About my libraryIt has a life of it's own. I'm sorry to say that everything in the "your library collection" is also in the house. I had to move once because the weight of the books cause the floor of my house to drop about four inches below the adjoining walls.

The collections in my catalog:

Your library: my actual library of my actual books. All present and accounted for and taking up a ridiculous amount of space.

Arcs: Galleys, advanced review copies, bound manuscripts, and otherwise not-quite-finished.

Audio Books on tape, CD, iTunes--and because The Arkangel Shakespeare deserved it's own special place.

Wishlist: Abandoned all attempts at keeping one. I do have a running list of books and authors I keep offsite to keep track of books I've heard about that might interest me, or lists of books by writers I'm interested in -- I'm a "completest" about writers that catch my attention, want to read the good and the bad and the indifferent. But the wishlist is climbing towards the 10K figure and would totally swamp my REAL library, so it stays off site.

Little Library: I recently joined the Little Library movement when I put a lending library at the end of my driveway, across from the community boat dock. So these are books I've put there to be taken, (they are not always returned.)

Here's a video tour of the library, where it is distressingly obvious how little housekeeping I do.
