About meFolklorist and college instructor. Working at a bookstore helps pay the rent and deplete the bank account.
About my libraryThe product of organized study, random enthusiasms, impulse, and the hoarder's instinct. I have about a thousand books with me, and the rest in storage nearby. Everything except a mess of academic journals is now cataloged--and I'm hoping not to add too much more until I have a place to put them all!
