About meI am now, as they say, "dangerously overeducated", but I suspect that is because a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Hopefully over time I shall get to those "to be read" books that are lurking in my apartment.

I have a networking profile on and on Twitter for any who are interested in that kind of thing and would like to network.

About my libraryI prefer non fiction, usually history, biography, science and cultural studies. I don't have a dogmatic hatred of fiction, however, and will read whatever looks interesting.

I have been accused of "having a problem with books", but really, it's more of a problem with storage, as I've had to keep acquiring bookcases to hold my collection. What I *really* need is a new apartment. With more room for bookcases.

Edited to add: Two apartments later, and the books are really taking over. I have an entire wall and a bit dedicated to books, and have been slowly working my way through the backlog of books to read. I could still probably use another bookcase, though...
