About meJust your atypical 30-something bookworm. Eclectic about books, movies, and music. Loves traveling, crafting, cooking/baking, all things horror, photography, films, writing/blogging, etc and so forth. The love of books & reading goes without saying, of course. I'm American, if you're curious (from Chicagoland), but now reside [permanently] in Belgium.
About my libraryTook inventory some time in 2012, with approximations since my guess is there are roundabouts 800 books in this location (another several hundred are back in the US w/ my mom), excluding my husband's textbooks. There are books of almost every type; anything interesting & well-written is given a fair shot! I do tend to favor classics, horror, and crime/thriller/military espionage sort of things, but my tastes are truly eclectic. As you can tell, I've hardly made a dent with books cataloged here so far, but I'm working on it!
