About My Library

Click here to see a few shots of my actual library. (These pictures are from a few years ago...it's quite a bit more "stuffed" now!)

As far as entering all of my books into LibraryThing, I've finally finished! There are a few paperbacks I haven't enetered, since they are part of my share pile or give-away pile and thus not part of my "permanent" collection. But for all intents and purposes, I'm done! (except for additional stuff I buy!)

Also note: Regarding my LT entries for some of the series' (Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Tom Swift, etc), I've played with the Date field a bit in order to get them to display in proper sequence/groupings. I've done my best to keep them in the approximate era of their publication (not an easy task, considering the multitude of publication variations of these series), so please forgive the seeming date-entry errors. (I've left the correct dates in the Publication and Summary Line fields; it's only the Date field that I've tinkered with).

About Me

========================================

What I'm currently reading:


My to-read list, in no particular order (just to name a few!):


What I've recently finished reading:


The first book I ever bought and read of my own volition!:

.....I was 12 and bought it at a rummage sale for 10 cents. After reading it, still in shock that a book could actually be enjoyable, I decided it must have been because it had the word "mystery" in the title. So, for a while, I would only read books with titles containing the word "mystery."
.....At some point, after scavenging all the "mystery"-titled books in the youth section at the local public library, I somehow ended up with a Nancy Drew book (which I'd never heard of before) with "secret" in the title ("The Secret of the Old Clock"), but since it was sub-titled "A Nancy Drew Mystery," I decided I could bend my rule a little. After discovering that there were other Nancy Drew books (in a separately shelved section of the library), some with neither the word "mystery" nor "secret" in the title, I tossed out the rule altogether and just started reading all the Nancy Drews.
.....Eventually, a kind librarian hesitantly asked, "Umm, young man, why aren't you reading the Hardy Boys mysteries?"
.....I replied, "Hardy Boys? Who are they?"
.....Uhh, yeah. Duh on me.
.....Anyway, it wasn't long before I'd tracked down every mystery in the library, having fully opened the door to the world of reading.
.....It would be another year or so before my attention turned to science fiction (starting with Arthur C. Clarke's "Childhood's End"--the first book in the "Favorite Cover Art" section below) (and what a fitting title!) Then the doors to all the worlds started to open....

Favorite Cover Art:
(Not to judge a book by its cover or anything...)
