I sold some books a while back, donated others when I couldn't bring them home from Russia - are they no longer part of my library? I feel like they are, or should be, like my library should just be a catalogue of my reading experience - I should almost go back and delete from my library the books I haven't read...
How do you define your library?
My library is books that I currently own, or that I have reviewed here and no longer own. (The latter are in a separate collection.)
My actual library is made up of books (shelves in every room) that I've read but mostely the dreaded TBR pile, when I finish a book, I give it to the library we are trying to start here on the Peninsula so folks won't have to drive in to the county seat.
This is not a good time for libraries in Ohio as the budget has been drastically cut.
The old definition of library is a collection of books and other materials and also the house where they are stored. If we stretch that a bit, we can say that each of us is a library. How we organize and present what we know is what will give our collections value.
It is an exciting thought!
