Over mijn bibliotheek
Most of my print books (those under the "Your Library" collection) were found at resale shops, library sales, and used book stores. I preorder the new releases of a handful of authors, though. I've also started picking up or borrowing significantly more e-books and audiobooks, but those are added only as I read them and are placed in separate collections, along with borrowed print books.

As far as physical storage, my books are currently about half boxed and half on shelves in preparation for a likely move in summer 2022. I'm currently deploying tags such as "BRT1" or "LRS2" as location and/or boxing codes and also have set up a self-explanatory "Boxed" collection. Post-move, I have nebulous but grandiose plans for lots of wall shelving, though we'll see how it turns out.

To explain the favorite authors, I initially added just about everyone who had written several books I enjoyed. I've not updated the list much in the last ten years, however, so it's not particularly representative.
Over mij

I'm an academic librarian in exurban Chicagoland. I previously worked a mix of public and academic libraries, as well as teaching part-time for several years. Reading in all forms is my favorite hobby, though I also enjoy cooking and baking (often while listening to an audiobook) and, more actively, hiking and nature walks.

I share my home with three cats--Tara, Ralph, and Zuki--accentuating the stereotype of the bespectacled, cat-loving, spinster-librarian. My profile pictures also feature Tim and Sylvester (Bester), two other feline companions who passed in 2016 and are much missed. In the summer of 2022, I adopted Sam, a gangly and very mixed breed dog, despite the cats' misgivings.
