About meI'm the Extension Services library for a regional, multi-county system in Georgia. I received my MLIS in late 2008, and have worked for the same regional library system in various positions for 14 years. I have the majority of my book collection on here---I always have a few more to add, so keep checking back! *GRIN* Reading is one of my passions, along with a fascination with mountain-life. Hopefully, in the future I shall be able to relocate to the Georgia mountains and begin a life up there or perhaps move to Seattle and work in that amazing library system (a change from hot Georgia weather would be quite nice).

I've created a few things on these pages:

It's library-related stuff and a smattering of my nature photography.

About my libraryI have a passion for epic fantasy...you'll see that now that I have placed my fantasy collection on here. I'm also interested in nearly everything, so you will find a wide variety of subjects among my collection---just can't help it, I'm a librarian through and through. ; )

Hi there, Ui_Niall.

Would being a Georgian help to make the fantasy books of the late Tom Deitz more interesting to you? (Yes, more than 2 years after you posted on the Fantasy Fans Group Board, asking if anyone else here read Deitz's books, you're getting a reply - not the first one, I hope.)

Unfortunately, the only Deitz book I've got - also the only one I've ever seen - is the first of his David Sullivan series, 'Windmaster's Bane', which I'm currently re-reading.

Allo!!!

He does indeed - although I had to refresh my memory of that fact. Problem I have with reading books is that I tend to have pretty much forgotten most of the facts, characters and plot within weeks or even days of finishing it. That makes reading an ongoing series of books a bit tricky, so I tend to wait till the last one is published before starting. Only usually to find an "extra" book sneaks out a little later - such as the Night Watch trilogy and the Last watch following up. Luckily I managed to hold that one together in my mind long enough for it all to make sense :)

Hi, I did enjoy reading the book, but it was sometimes quite difficult for someone like me who is not familiar with the geography of that part of the world. I can accept astronomical alignments of ancient monuments, but I'm rather skeptical about constellations traced out in the road network! I have read another book: The Celtic gods : comets in Irish mythology / Patrick McCafferty & Mike Baillie, which I think makes a better case for astronomy in ancient Ireland. Best wishes -Mark
Unfortunately, unless some plans change I will be out of town that week and will be unable to attend.
James, thank you. Let's try and get librarians to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human rights this December.
We will need great reading librarians no matter what.
Hi James! I manage the Madison County Branch of the Athens Regional Library System. My library is about 20 minutes north of Athens and is pretty rural, but nice and big. I like it. You are now my LibraryThing role model: I'm amazed at how much you've done!
Hi,
Great to hear your enthusiasm!

Thanks for the interesting libraries add. You have a very interesting library too. It's wonderfully eclectic. I'm insanely jealous of your Joseph Campbell collection.
I just read your story on "Funny Requests from Patrons" and I must say that I am in awe of your Super-Librarian Powers! :) And then I visit your profile page and see that you're very much into fantasy, too. Bravo, sir.

Hi Ui,
Thanks for your note. I'm new to LibraryThing and sometimes forget to check back! I've been a little overwhelmed with marketing my first book, and am really just getting going. Have learned a lot about how NOT to go about it, lol. It's very cool that you're into library science. If I hadn't been a writer, I think I would have chosen that.

Nice to meet you.

Hi. You tagged me last month with a comment. It's always fun to find another fantasy buff. I almost went into Library and Information Science, but chose Museum Studies instead. Pretty impressive that we share 102 books.
Hi too! The links are fairly straightforward - I just did tag searches and then linked to the URL of the results. It takes a bit of tweaking at first, but mostly it works.

Nice fantasy collection!
