About meI'm a teacher-librarian (go figure) at a high school campus in south King County, Washington State (just south of Seattle). As well as being a bibliophile, I enjoy knitting, blogging, photography and traveling with my hubby of 20+ years.

About my libraryAs I've cataloged my home library I've discovered a pattern about my library. I distinct "sections" that I favor. Political/current events, historical, cultural narrative, religion (comparative), philosophy, women's studies/issues/feminism, contemporary fiction, classic literature (fiction and non-fiction), knitting/crocheting, and finally young adult. Currently I've cataloged nearly 200 books with many more pending. Ahhhh! For the love of a book.

I just started "Divergent" on Friday. I had to stay up late last night to finish it!! Thanks so much for the recommendation :)

I really enjoyed it!!!! I'm going to have to go buy the second book as soon as I can!
