About meMarmot: Frenetic bundle of energy frequently seen in book piles. The Russian specialist of the burrow. Addicted to knitting, spinning and watercolors - thus, as often seen in a pile of yarn covered in paint as amid the luscious tomes.

Wombat: Contemplative marsupial frequently seen ruminating over books. The general historian and library-organizer of the burrow.

We're lucky enough to share an obsession with books, so we never receive recriminating glances for bringing home a box of books. Well, bringing home just one box may get you a stern look, especially if it's only a small box...

About my library- "We are guests of our books"

Together, we have a collection that's very specialized in some areas (e.g., Soviet-era) and very broad in others (general history). Our only problem is that the more Wombat organizes the Dom Knigi, the more gaps we notice. Which leads to more books, causing more shelving, more reorganization and yet more noticing of our Bibliotechnic inadequecies by the keen-eyed Marmot.
