About My Library
I primarily own works of history (military, women's, 19th century, etc.), historical fiction (including mystery and romance), and classics. In general I prefer fantasy to science fiction, but I do have works of science nonfiction in my library. I have 50+ how-to-write books, some of which I've actually read. I worked in desktop publishing for 9 years and to help with that job I acquired books on training, knowledge management, technical communication, markup languages, and software applications.

I sometimes buy books based on beautiful covers. Also on size -- big, fat history books catch my eye every time. In addition to learning about books in bricks-and-mortar and online stores, and on listservs, I read _Publishers Weekly_ (at the library now that it's no longer on newsstands). Although it has ceased print publication, you can find Civil War Book Review online. And I get in all kinds of trouble by reading notes and bibliographies in books I already own, leading me to more titles I must acquire.

As of January 2013 I have maybe 20-25% of my library catalogued here. All books listed I do actually own, with the exception of a few recently sold for a pittance to a used bookstore. My wishlist is in a 5-subject notebook (two sections for fiction, two for non-fiction, and one for magazine articles & dissertations).

Tags in progress, if slowly: about 90% of my current catalog is tagged. Most tags should be self-explanatory; however, any tag beginning with "@" is associated with fiction and identifies a place or motif appearing in the novel.

NOTE: If you visit my library from time to time to see what has changed, choose the recommended format. It uses the field for date entered, which you can easily sort on to see what is new. Or at least newly added.

Feel free, if you stumble across my library, to leave me a comment telling me how you arrived here. In case you don't care to leave a comment, the map will serve as my guestbook.

As you can tell by my profile picture, I am a fan of J. W. Waterhouse. I love Pre-Raphaelite art. I'm also a fan of international music (check out Songlines magazine as a great review source). I like classical music peppy (Baroque, Slavic, etc.), rock alternative, and hip hop old school. I also love old movies -- Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Betty Hutton, Joan Blondell, and James Gleason are favorites. I love to dance and to watch dance.
