About meAn incorrigible reader from way back (cereal boxes, shampoo bottles...), and now also a high-school English teacher.

"The house was quiet and the world was calm.
The reader became the book; and summer night
Was like the conscious being of the book.
The house was quiet and the world was calm."
(Wallace Stevens)

About my libraryMy online library is currently in metamorphosis from being a literal manifestation of my physical library, to a shambolic representation of my mental library - the books I've read, the books I'm reading and the books I intend to read... someday.
