About me29 year old woman from Oulu, Finland. I'm currently studying at the University of Oulu. It's my sixth (and hopefully last) year there. My major is information studies - I want to be a librarian when I grow up. My minors are literature, media science and classical archaeology. Reading and books are my dearest hobby, and it shows: the walls of my home are covered with bookshelves (check my profile pics to see for yourself!)

29-vuotias nainen Oulusta. Opiskelen kuudetta (ja toivottavasti viimeistä) vuotta Oulun yliopistossa pääaineenani informaatiotutkimus, eli kirjastotädiksi halajan isona. Sivuaineita ovat mm. kirjallisuus, mediatiede ja klassillinen arkeologia. Lukeminen ja kirjat ovat rakkain harrastukseni, joka näkyy ulospäin kotini seiniä peitttävinä kirjahyllyinä (tämän voit itse käydä toteamassa profiilikuviani tarkastelemalla!)

About my libraryMy home library is quite big: when I last tallied them up (in 2005) there were more than 1500 books and after that I have bought or otherwise gathered more and more of them. Most of my books are fiction novels, though I do have some nonfiction too.
My books are mostly in English (about 40%) or Finnish (about 60%), and couple of books in Swedish. The range of genre of my fiction are quite big; from classics to romance, fantasy to true crime and thrillers and pretty much everything and anything in between...but most of the books focus on my two favourite genres: romance (especially contemporary and paranormal) and fantasy (urban & epic). Genres of nonfiction vary greatly too, but most of them are still focused on my favourites: music, (ancient) history and mystic.
Right now I'm in the middle of catalogueing my books to here in Librarything. I began with my English fiction, and I'm just moving from there to Finnish fiction and after I someday finish that, to nonfiction.

Kotikirjastoni on melko suuri: viimeksi laskiessa (v. 2005) kirjoja oli reilut 1500, ja sen jälkeenkin olen ahkerasti ostanut aina vain uusia kirjoja. Suurin osa kirjoista on romaaneja - vaikka toki myös tietokirjoja löytyy jokunen. Kirjojen pääkielinä ovat suomi ja englanti, suomenkielisiä suhteessa vähän enemmän, sekä muutama ruotsinkielinen romaani. Romaanien genrekirjo on suuri klassikoista romantiikkaan, fantasiasta jännäreihin ja melkeinpä kaikkea siltä väliltä - suurin osa kuitenkin keskittyen kahteen lempigenreeni eli romantiikkaan ja fantasiaan. Myös tietokirjoja löytyy todella monilta eri aloilta, mutta niissäkin on selvästi havaittavissa keskittyminen muutamaan suosikkiini: musiikkiin, (antiikin)historiaan ja mystiikkaan.
Tällä hetkellä minulla on meneillään kirjojen luettelointiurakka tänne LibraryThingiin. Aloitin urakan englanninkielisistä romaaneista, olen juuri siirtymässä urakassa suomenkielisten romaanien pariin ja viimeisenä ovat vuorossa tietokirjat.

Hey Tessa,
I may have a lead on another copy of Destiny Kills. I will let you know as soon as I can. I've put in a request. The other account was closed.
Missy
Tessa-

I have received My Nerdy Valentine; Talk Nerdy to Me; and Picture Me Dead that I am angeling for you. I have posted them to my inventory (turtlegirl on BM) as Angel Books #7, 8, and 9 reserved for you. I still have not received Ella Enchanted, so I'd like to go ahead and send just these three for now.

Kristin
Tessa- I was able to mooch My Nerdy Valentine. I'll let you know when everything arrives.

Kristin
Hi Tessa,

I don't think those Greek myths are going to turn up - I requested more than a month ago and reminded 16 days ago. Are you happy for me to cancel? This would leave you with 3 Angel credits with me from the UK.

Regards
Yvann
Tessa,

I have made a listing, Angel Book #11, for Renegade that I am angeling but have not yet received. It would probably be easiest to mooch it from the recommendation email.

Kristin
Tessa,

I have received the following books that I am angeling for you: Long, Lean, and Lethal; Tall, Dark, and Deadly; Dying to Have Her; Hurricane Bay; Drop Dead Gorgeous; and Blood Dreams. I have posted them to my inventory (turtlegirl on BM) as Angel Books #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 reserved for you. I have so many Angel books to send out right now that I have had to reuse Angel Book numbers, so just find the copies that are reserved for you. The condition notes include your name and the book title.

Kristin
