Über meine Bibliothek
My physical library is messy, with sideways and double-stacked books everywhere, although I can usually still lay hold of any book you want in under thirty seconds (unless it's one that's in storage at my parents' house, in which case you have to factor in travel time.) Since I moved it got an extra case to spread into, although there still (always!) seems not to be enough room for all of my books.

My LT catalog contains books I've read but do not own, books I own but have not read, and books that I have both own and read - making it an amalgamation of my "physical" and "mental" libraries. I mainly use it as an extended book journal and reading list - keeping track of what I've read (and when), what I've thought about it, and what's on the pile to read next.

Über mich
Let’s see… I’m a voracious reader and am terribly addicted to used book sales. I am usually reading and/or listening to at least two books at a time, although it’s frequently more. I rarely go anywhere without a novel tucked into my jacket pocket or backpack, plus two or three audiobooks on my phone - and my e-reader as well, for emergencies! I’m a biologist, although only a small percentage of the books I read are science books. I read mainly fiction, typically a mix of fantasy, historical fiction, young adult novels, and literary fiction. I’m not particularly well-read in the classics (my high school English classes tended towards more eclectic book selections), although I try to pick off at least one or two a year.

I'm also a bit of a junkie for stats, graphs, and other visual representations of data. I've got two pet book-related projects: a reading calendar, and a reading graph.

My reading calendar is on my blog, here.
I use an Excel spreadsheet to track my reading progress by year, and to make pretty graphs like this:

You can download the spreadsheet here. You enter: your goal for the year, the date you finish each book, and the number of pages in each book (or time if it's an audiobook).

It calculates: How many books you've read so far, how many pages you've read so far, average books per day, average days per book, average number of pages per day, your projected year-end total if you keep reading at the same rate, and whether you are reading faster or slower than the pace you need to reach your goal (green if you're ahead, red if you're behind, black if you're on target).
