Library Update: June 2006

Since June typically represents the middle of the year, I have decided to upload the latest version of my Personal Library. This catalogue of my library is technically complete, but I’m always purchasing new books, movies, music, and games. If you would like to trade or purchase, please contact me, and we’ll work something out. Current library stats:

  • Games: 10
