About My Library
My main objective in recording books on Library Thing is to keep track of what I've read. There's a half a lifetime of reading that simply hasn't been recorded but no matter. I don't record the often frightening array of books that I own but have not yet read. Those have long since outgrown the shelves intended to house them and many are in storage. I faithfully cull my library each year and contribute several boxes of books to our local library fundraiser, having concluded long ago that the books I would actually re-read make up a very small percentage of books I've enjoyed.
About Me
I live, read and garden in East Tennessee after half a lifetime in Phoenix Arizona. Reading is a lifetime passion, sometimes an escape, almost always a pleasure. The collection documented here is weighted toward science fiction and fantasy, once the greatest part of my reading. While that is less true than it once was, the collection reflects a lifetime's taste.
