Personal Collection
I have registered part of my personal collection to help me track them. Some of these books I may be willing to loan to friends by mail, while others I prefer to loan only in person to avoid the risk of them getting lost in the mail. I like to see personal collection books on others' shelves -- I've gotten lots of great ideas on books and authors that way. If you prefer not to see my personal collection, just sort on "available" or "tbr".
