About meI guess you could call me a bibliophile. :-) But that is probably obvious, because I am here. As my user name suggests, I was an editor. Now I am a burnt-out editor. In my second life, I want to be a librarian. Note the common theme!
About my libraryAs you might guess, I am buried in books. I actively collect cookbooks, especially old cookbooks and recipe booklets, and Asian and third-world cookbooks--the more esoteric, the better. I also have an extensive collection of foreign lit and lots of random books.... I had more, but I am beginning to think they were lost while they were supposed to be safe in storage. I'm trying NOT to think about that.
