Über meine Bibliothek
When I made the cross-country move 5 years ago, professional movers looked at the piles and piles and piles of book boxes and estimated 5000 pounds - there is more now even though space and budget restrictions have limited my purchases these past several years. Given that we live in a tiny house, most of it is STILL in boxes, making cataloguing a difficult process (and thus what appears here a somewhat eclectic cross section of the recent purchases and things that have somehow gotten unpacked that I have also gotten around to cataloguing). I have several hundred cookbooks, a substantial SF/F library - leaning heavily towards fantasy, and a fair bit of science, particularly cognition and development, which is my field. I have smaller collections of gardening books, horse books (both fiction and non), children's books and Arthurian books. My toddler daughter has a growing collection of picture books but those are catalogued separately.

I seldom buy mysteries, especially since moving somewhere with a respectable library system, though there are a few exceptions to that and I read many of them. It is in fact the access to such a library system that made me decide to include books I read from the library in my catalog as many of them I would have bought a few years ago (and many of them I will buy as budget permits). OTOH, since my local library doesn't catalog pocket paperbacks, I read much less fantasy than I used to.

Subscriptions:
Cooking Light and Real Simple, although I always feel odd subscribing to a magazine dedicated to reducing clutter. I pick up Cook's Illustrated bound annuals when I find them inexpensively.

The daughter just switched from Babybug to Ladybug magazine. We plan to add Click and/or My Big Backyard when she turns 3. The husband receives several professional magazines and newsletters related to his field, space physics.
Über mich
As one of my friends in graduate school replied when I asked her what she liked to do, "You mean other than read?"

I cannot remember not reading - my mother says that I started reading at 2-and-a-half and given how our daughter is responding to books and words, she may not have been exagerating. I used to be a voracious reader who would happily spend the weekend curled up on the couch with a pile of books and an occasional trip to the kitchen for a new pot of tea. Before reading I am the mother of a toddler who adores books and being read to and "read by self". Beyond reading, I am a knitter, a gardener and I used to ride horses (and plan to again once the daughter is a bit older). I have a cat and a borzoi and wonderful husband who puts up with a continuous influx of books into our too small house.
