About meAcademic librarian and opera-loving English literature geek.

About my libraryI've cataloged most of my collection by now. Many of my books (especially the ones tagged "renaissance" and "literary theory") were acquired while I was a grad student in English, but since then I've been snapping up a lot of fiction. Books I've tagged "family" originally belonged to various family members. I'm perpetually short of bookshelves and constitutionally incapable of resisting Friends of the Library sales and secondhand bookstores.

"He had all the predisposition to take interest in an old library, and there was every opportunity for him here to make systematic acquaintance with one ... The drawing up of a catalogue raisonné would be a delicious occupation for winter." -- M. R. James, "Mr. Humphreys and His Inheritance," in Casting the Runes and Other Ghost Stories, ed. Michael Cox (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1987).
