About meI am an editor by profession, which makes me a reader and writer by definition. I recently acquired an iPad 2. We will see if this changes my life as a reader and hoarder of books.
About my libraryFor years I treated used book stores as a kind of lending library: buy a book, read it, trade the book back for "store credit" (another book or books). This has left me a private library of many books I have yet to read. More recently, I have found myself buying editions of books a second or third time, to read over. Hardly the most economical method of acquiring reading matter. At present, I have lots of space at low cost, so accumulating books doesn't present quite the disutility it might be for others. Three thousand books? No problem. I could house ten thousand, if I could only get rid of my hoard of old Macintosh computers.
