Über meine Bibliothek
If you’re looking for method or correctness, this is not the library for you. I buy books on a whim, but stick with authors I like until they disappoint me {coughPatriciaCornwellcough}. Some years I buy a lot of books, some years I don’t (that whole no money thing sure is a drag, huh?). Sometimes I purge my collection. Once nearly all my books were stolen. I rarely ever give books away.

Turn ons include thrillers and books about crime with an occasional foray into some historical fiction and what I would call “quality modern literature”. I like a good detective series, but not too many because there is only so much time to read and collect and remember the characters. My lust for coffee table books must be reigned in with discipline. Turn offs include romance, fantasy, “heartwarming” Oprah choices and classics labeled as such because they are merely old.

Notes on Collections:
Yeah, I’m one of those. A LibraryThing Purist. Until Collections released I only entered books I owned. Those are housed in the My Library collection. A subset of that is the To Read collection which consists of books I have, but haven't read and are on deck. It's a big deck. All else is vaporware and collected in the following ways;

Childhood Books – pretty self-explanatory, these are books I owned or read as a kid; those I can remember anyway.
Corralled – books contained within omnibuses in my collection.
Kicked to the Curb – books purged over the years; either accidentally on or purpose.
Read not Owned – self-explanatory.
Wishlist – books I plan to purchase at some point. Stars indicated level of desirability.
Of Interest – books that caught my eye, but haven’t made it to wishlist status.
Stuck in the Middle – books I still own that I’m stuck in. Maybe I’ll finish them, but maybe they’ll get Kicked to the Curb.
Ken – my husband’s books.
Loaned Out – self-explanatory. Dates and borrower’s name in comments.

Some tag info -
hb = standard hardback size
mmpb = mass market paperback
tpb = trade paperback
shb = hardback with the page size of a tpb (these bug me!)
lhb = hardback larger than standard, but not a coffee table
lpb = large or over sized paperback
ken = books owned by my husband Ken
cover scan = actual scans of my books, fascinating huh?
lovcov = covers that I particularly like or was drawn to

Reading habits: I always have a few books going. Almost always fiction and different enough to suit my individual moods. I can read riding in the car or a plane or waiting for my turn in the dentist chair. Once I had a commute that was about 110 miles round trip so audio books were a lifesaver, and I still listen to them even without the drive.

For many years I have kept a Book Journal because my memory for things is pretty poor. That’s where I get most of my review material. I try not to include plot-spoilers, but will warn of such if it occurs to me.

So…enjoy. Have a laugh at my weird taste. Drop me a comment or two. Then leave me alone and let me get back to my book.

Cheers!
Über mich
Am in my 50s, married, no kids unless you count 2 spoiled cats. Besides reading I'm into hiking, nature, photography, x-country skiing, kayaking, kettlebells and Olympic bars, relaxing on my deck or dock, relishing a whole-foods diet, and my E36 M3. I also have a love of food (bacon!), wine (zin!) and heavy metal (Clutch!). I used to be into motorcycles, aquariums and iguanas. I may be again in the future, but things ebb and flow.
