About me

5.? years transfer college (Math/Computer Science)
21 years getting my feet wet, before I go back to get my BA. (sigh)

I collect (or have collected) books, computers, plastic models, CDs, DVDs, Gunpla, and books.

DVDs, if you are really curious

About my libraryI used to read anything and everything I could get my hands on. Once I started working, I started hitting the book stores, sometimes twice a week. Most of my stuff is either fantasy or science fiction, with an occasional branch into non-fiction to find out what the sci-fi authors are talking about.

When I went back to school, my finances and time made me cut back on my reading. When I started working again, I found out you were no longer limited to "Books in Print", but that if you searched hard enough, you could find all the stuff that you could never find before. A co-worker turned me on to goodreads, and my reading (and buying) accelerated. I found out all kinds of other books by favorite authors, extensions of series that I'd forgotten about, and I never really recovered. Between free books for the Kindle and used books from Amazon partners, I don't know if I'll live long enough to read everything I have.

When it seemed that Otis and company were more interested in pursuing the dollar than in the community they created, I came here. The fact that he sold out to Amazon bears me out. :-(
