La mia biblioteca
Well, it's pretty extensive. Reading is one of my favorite past times and is how I unwind at the end of work, or during lunch, or on a weekend when it's just the best thing to do. And my library has grown exponentially with the help and influence of my friends on both Shelfari and Leafmarks. I am open to biographies, historical fiction, fantasy (and some sci-fi) and general fiction though not as much. Classics from time to time, especially if I'm reading them as part of a group.

I have met books I didn't like, and I usually put them down and do my best to give a fair review. And I've found one of the best things for these books is through the site bookcrossing.com, where I can release these books into the wild and track them while they find new homes.

I use the following categories:

WishlistOooh, that sounds like something fun or interesting and I like your review of it.

Read Read all the way through

Currently readingStill reading. Some books take a few weeks, some a few years. When I see the same books every time I open this view, it's time to finish it or release it.

Informazione su di me
Another Shelfari castaway hoping to find similar friends and interests and reading challenges on this new site. I still enjoy reading quite a bit and have found that a) I really enjoy good historical fiction (i.e., no bodice ripping), and b) read more fantasy than true science fiction. But I like both genres and have friends in both worlds. And then there are the biographies and autobiographies that I find on bookshelves and find fascinating.

Originally, I get my general fiction reading mostly through a local book group at our local library. Most of the books I get on loan but a few have found their way to my "i-own" shelf. But since becoming more involved with LibraryThing (albeit on the odd weekend or two per month when I can spend time here), I've found a lot more general fiction to like.

Then there is the call to wander in a locally owned bookstore (yes, there is one nearby!) and just see what happens to fall off the shelf. Or the other used bookstore that has a great selection of science fiction and fantasy from all eras. It's been a great way to add onto my TBR shelves with authors liked by friends on this site.

I currently participate on the SFFKit; it has helped me establish a "To Be Re-Read" list that has resulted in the culling of some books and the addition of new books languishing in bags on the floor. So organization is a good thing.
