Sobre Minha Biblioteca

This catalog contains books I own ("My Library"), books I've read that I used to own ("Read and Recycled"), and books I've borrowed and read from various sources, most often, the public library ("Read but unowned"). It also contains a few books that are strictly my husband's, and a category for my son's books, too. My "Unread" category contains books I've already gotten my hands on that I want to read. The "Ever-Expanding List" is my list of items I want to read, owned and unowned.

I used to have collections to track what was available from various library sources, but that information was impossible to keep current. In fact, I'm not sure that my information about what is in my library and what has been recycled is up to date.

I own many books that I haven't gotten around to reading yet; there are probably some that I'll never get around to reading. But I keep buying books, and reading books from the public library. My "read but not owned" collection contains some of my favorite books.

Note: "Unread" means unread by ME. Others in the household may have read these books.

A word about my ratings system: I don't have one. It's all a knee-jerk, flying-by-the-seat-of-the-pants effort. Each time I go through my library and note relative ratings of one book to another, I realize how arbitrary I am in granting stars. And if my average rating is rather high, it's because (except for more recent reads since I joined LT) I'm rating the books that are memorable -- and the good ones tend to stick with me! (Some books are memorable because they are truly awful, but I am fortunate to avoid reading many of those!)

I try to give ratings to all books I read, But let me be clear: the fact that I give a book a good rating doesn't mean that I agree with its point of view. I read a wide variety of books, written from a wide variety of POVs. I can appreciate the work of those with whom I differ on various grounds.

About Me

I'm well over age fifty, living with hubby (of about 30 years), adult son, and cat (orange tabby with an attitude).

My hobbies and interests include reading (of course), music, and bowling. I enjoy travel, and like to purchase books of local folklore (especially the spooky kind!) in places that I visit. But I don't have enough time for reading lately. I thought life might calm down a little bit when I finished my Masters in Library Science in 2020 and settled into my work a little more . . . and then COVID-19 hit a few months before graduation. I never counted on running a library in a pandemic. And then . . . just life. Hectic. Crazy. And a huge reading slump.

I work in a library, so I'm surrounded by books at work. I go home, and I'm surrounded by books there, too -- which probably makes me a typical Library Thing member!

I'm most active in the 75 Challenge where I maintain a thread of all my reading.
