Sobre la meva biblioteca
Many of my books come to me serendipitously, and when I've enjoyed one book by an author, I tend to pick up his/her others whenever they're in reach, which means that some authors are overrepresented while there are other yawning gaps (I've put off getting most of the L. Frank Baum Oz books until I can afford nice editions--or someone gives them to me for free). About 60% of the Holmes/Sherlockiana collections (including virtually all the rarer books) was a gift from a friend who, for some incomprehensible reason, was trying to store fewer books. I'm still working my way through them.

I am in the process of weeding. I need to clear out somewhere in the vicinity of 500 books if I am to have any hope of fitting them all on shelves. Advice on strategy is welcome. Books tagged "discarded" are just that, but I'm not removing them from the library so that I have a record of what they are and don't undo all my good work by picking up another copy....

Beginning in 2003, I started keeping a yearly list of books I've read purely for pleasure (I read a lot of books for work--to the point that I was almost forgetting to read for pleasure). So books I've read in the last five years are tagged "read 2003" and so on. But pretty much everything I read before then falls into a grand amorphous lump.
