Sobre mimDespite being rather old, I am still buying books faster than I read them. I gain a little comfort from the thought that time will run out before the books do!

My strange picture is a lithograph by Charles Keeping from The Treasure of Abbott Thomas in the Folio Society edition of the Ghost Stories of M R James.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaVaried but heavy on poetry, Wodehouse and Napoleonic war novels. Residue of my professional library from my working life. Included are my wife's books as well as those of my grown-up children that they have left in my care - along with all the other juvenalia ;-).

Looking at my favourite authors reminds me that I tend to escapism rather than serious literary study. I like romans fleuves but, despite owning two versions of Proust, I haven't got past Swann's Way.

I should make it clear that 'Your Library' contains all the books I actually own and no others. I like the opportunity given by Collections to define and display more clearly than with tags groups of books of particular interest to me. The various Penguin collections and the Opera programmes are in this category and are sub-sets of 'Your Library'.

'Non-book items' and 'Maps' are not included in 'Your Library' and are not checked for Connections or Recommendations. I have also isolated those children's books for which I have no particular feeling, despite storing them, in a 'Children's Books Archive' collection, again not participating in Connections or Recommendations.

Speech recordings are included in the 'Non-book Items' collection but I have opened another account for music CD, tape and LP, and for film on DVD, under the user name "theabbottsmusick". I have yet another account which used to be a wish-list under the name "theabbottsdesires". It never really worked as a wish-list; I would enter a book with an interesting review but then forget about it. By the time I looked again I couldn't recall why I had been interested in the first place. I now use it to keep a record of concert programmes and the little guides given away at many art exhibitions. I had kept these but now need to declutter so this account will be a memory store.

Apart from a few books I reviewed but no longer own ('Removed but reviewed'), I do not list any read-not-owned books - I think it would be pretty meaningless after 70-odd years of reading - and, as just explained, I don't now keep a wishlist.
