Quant a miMy library tags so far probably describe my interests best. Years trying to enter USNA only to get into my 2nd choice. My allegiance to topics naval and military is my way of balancing out things not accomplished. 16 years living at the rural OR coast 50 miles away. Now in suburbia (with many more bookstores to browse). Love that any book can be found and acquired online, but realize that the web can not replace the thrill of the hunt in a good bookstore. A very satisfying day... roaming Powell's City of Books in downtown Portland.

Quant a
la meva biblioteca
Used to buy books at the drop of a hat. Finally reality set in along with a budget. Now I focus on developing a Wishlist, researching titles/reviews and searching out hard cover versions (if possible). Own a fair number of paperbacks with the ideal goal of eventually swapping to hard covers.
Have come to the conclusion that Book Club Editions are worthless for resale. Short of content that I want to read, I try to avoid BCE acquisitions.

I did some back and forth on inclusion of audio books in my LT Library or not. As a quasi-bibliophile, I value a book in my hands. But recently I have really come to like selected audio books and have listened to some very good books that I might not have otherwise read or purchased in hard copy form. So I determined the best way to track audio books is thru an audio book List. This allows for overlaps between my lists.

If you look at my collection and LT published reviews, you will note that I have a focus on WWII generals and leaders. If it is not obvious, I believe that Marshall was almost a superman. Very interesting learning about his subordinates and how they all interacted during the war (and prior).

You might think a dedication to submarine and history topics is not consistent with a lingering for the zombie genre. Just my latest interest. My Wishlist of zombie books actually represents a fair amount of research of available books including reviews from multiple sources. I eliminated various books with less than glowing reviews. If you can identify further 'decent' zombie books with a focus on first person or a select group of survivors, drop me a message. I find books with multi-person viewpoints from various locations around the world as too much. DBDA has set the standard for me along with the Walking Dead TV series.
