Library Update: January 2007

It’s the first month of the new year, which means that it’s time for yet another Library update. 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:

  • Books: 375
  • Movies: 179
  • Music: 104
  • Games: 10
Note: The fore-mentioned library was getting far too large, so it is no longer available, but it was fun while it lasted.
