About meIn the past I made it a habit to buy more books than I had time to read. That, combined with taking a bunch of classes in college which required reading a lot of books, led me to a pretty large and varied collection of books, most unread. As of late I've figured out how to restrain myself -- somewhat -- when wanting to buy new books. And, I've been able to dedicate more time to reading all those books I bought over the years. However, most recently I started reading a lot of ebooks, so I don't have to fill up my entire home with books, but that has livened my book-buying trigger finger somewhat. Ah, such is life.

About my libraryI've pretty much now added all the books I own. A lot of the tags are out of date, as I had the great idea while in college to label everything with its location and what class it was for (if any).

Other than my own books, I've also added some owned by my family (none of them use LT...) and tagged them as such. That info is probably out of date, too.

I have a few general trends in the books in my library: Physics, Math, Computer Science, Literature, Writing (How-to, etc.), and, of course, Dungeons and Dragons. Lots of fantasy and sci-fi, too.
