Om migI have invested so much emotional capital into Library Thing since I discovered it just yesterday, that if it were to break or not work or go away, i might sink into an irreversable, clinical depression.

If you want to know more about me, so you can interpret my library selections through contextual lenses, more...

Now, to dispel the cult of the author once and for all:

"The author of the Iliad is either Homer or, if not Homer, somebody else of the same name." --Aldous Huxley

Om mit bibliotekBecause not everything you find here will be 'fine and good and worthy of respect':

"The Feeding of the Muse...seems to me to be the continual running after loves, the checking of these loves against one's present and future needs, the moving on from simple textures to more complex ones, from naive ones to more informed ones, from nonintellectual to intellectual ones. Nothing is ever lost. If you have moved over vast territories and dared to love silly things, you will have learned even from the most primitive items collected and put aside in your life. From an ever-roaming curiosity in all the arts, from bad radio to good theatre, from nursery rhyme to symphony, from jungle compound to Kafka's Castle, there is basic excellence to be winnowed out, truths found, kept, savored, and used on some later day. To be a child of one's time is to do all these things." --Ray Bradbury, How to Keep and Feed a Muse

With that out of the way:

I am using this site to maintain my own version of a bookography.
There are several "Key Tags", that may be of interest:

List of Candidates:
These are books that I would like to read. The list is huge, and will not likely be completed before I die. If you have read any of these, what did you think?

Library of Candidates:
These are books that I'd like to read and actually own. They are probably sitting on my shelf or next to my bed.

In Medias Res:
These are books that I'm currently reading.

Living Library:
These are books that I've read, but may or may not have in my posession at the moment. Though, I rarely read a book on loan, I do on occasion. I am equally reluctant to loan books, but will none the less. One must be a good citizen after all. This list will never be definitive. I cannot remember all the books I have read. And does one count the books from one's education? I have decided not to, in most cases. I will have to come to terms with the regretable fact that this list will always be a mystery.

These are books that I started, but for one reason or another, tossed aside. One's life is too short to read a book that isn't to your taste.
