Extended Profile

Last updated January 28, 2017.

I'm also on LibraryThing.

My available books do not necessarily reflect my reading tastes. I get books via various coworkers, book sales, etc. and participate heavily in release challenges. I also stock one official and two unofficial OBCZs. Stock for those sites is welcome, but the catch rate with j/e's is miniscule.

To get a surprise rabck, make sure your wishlist is updated!

Book Things
Mt TBR is down to 1742 and I'm trying to keep it that way.
The TBR books are split between "To Be Read" (non-romances) and "Reserved" (romances) on this site.
LibraryThing has the more accurate list of what I have (and what I have read) since I include the e-books there.
