Books are for life
I started cataloguing my book collection once. My lesbian-themed book collection, that is. At the time I started doing this (1993) it was probably seen as a particularly nerdy thing to do, especially using bibliographical software. That did take a certain amount of commitment, and I abandoned the project a few years later. But nothing will dispel my belief that lesbians and libraries really go together very well!Now, with the help of the latest online tools, it's so much easier for everyone to be a would-be librarian. So I'm trying out LibraryThing, and you can see my most recently acquired books by scrolling down the page and checking out the righthand margin of this blog.
Congratulations to Julie R. Enszer who has two poems published in Queer Collection: Prose & Poetry 2007, and very kindly sent me a copy. This anthology is well worth a read, and the editor is already on the lookout for submissions for the 2008 collection.
