About meTwenty-one-year-old bibliophile and college student, majoring in history, anthropology, and English lit (minor in religious studies) at the Univ. of Oklahoma and hoping to go into museum, living history, historic preservation, or related work. Hobbies are Scherenschnitte papercutting, colonial and Civil War reeenacting, playing trombone and French horn, contra dancing. I have lots of interests, including archaeology, folklore, early American history, material culture, New Religious Movements and utopias, North Carolina heritage, and early novels. Also, I like lists.

About my libraryI like to say I have eclectic tastes. Most of my library is children's/YA plus a lot of "classics" and other old(er) books. I used to collect (and still do sometimes) "vintage" children's mysteries such as Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, Dana Girls, and Ruth Fielding. My current literary interests include pre-1950 sci-fi/fantasy novels, world fiction from before about 1920 or so, and modern dystopias, utopias, and magical realism, as well as retellings, add-ons, etc. of classic stories and novels. Oh, and folklore and mythology, and 18th century fiction, and anything from Black Coat Press, Valancourt Books, Zittaw Press, Penguin and Oxford Classics, NYRB...

My ratings:
5 stars - great book, loved it, perfect
4 stars - pretty good book, decent read
3 stars - hated it (children's books in a large series - i.e., Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, etc. - are often rated like this just because they're all basically the same)
