Om migI've kept a list of books I've read for years, but never a list of books I owned. In 1989 I started adding comments to my list, most of them very brief. I am including these as reviews when I can make them reasonably coherent. I hope the reviews I post in the future will be more thoughtful, analytical and, dammit, just a bit more impressive. I can't review a book I've read more than a couple of weeks ago because I can barely remember it by then. I once asked my father (a great reader) if there was any point in reading books if you soon forgot them, and he said, oh, certainly; it forms your judgment. I think that's true.

I live in Manhattan, a city I love; moved here in 1982. I'm an artist, originally a painter, now taking photographs and posting them to my photoblog, Manhattan Street Project (link below). The project is to walk every street in Manhattan and photograph as I go. I invite you to visit and let me know what you think.

Om mitt bibliotekMy LT Library is strictly books I own and I want them all to be good, so I don't usually keep books I don't much like, with the exception of books I think I should like because they're universally admired. Henry James wrote many of this kind of book. I hope to try again when I'm smarter or more mature.

Now, with the new collection feature, I can catalog books, with reviews, that I've read, but didn't like and didn't want to keep. I'm happy about this because now my reviews will not be overwhelmingly positive.

Since I do most of my reading in the subway, I favor soft covers. I'm not into books as rare objects but I do want them looking good. Please do not borrow a book from me and return it all beat up. My memory is good about such things. I own many books I haven't read and so try not to buy new ones but we all know that's impossible. I have friends who ask me why I don't use the library. I'm glad the library is there for when I'm destitute, but I don't have to tell you LibraryThingers about the pleasures of ownership. Here in New York, city of small apartments, people are always going on about how you have to get rid of things. I'm glad to find a group with a different perspective.
