About meLibraryThing's Head Librarian. I run LibraryThing for Libraries.

About my libraryLimited by the confines of a city-sized apartment, but we pack as much in as we can. Our library* is full of media studies, gender studies, cultural American history books, and a growing pile of board books. In my not so copious free time, I'm getting back into reading fiction (and am taking suggestions)! I just realized that I've been unconsciously been working my way through Booker Prize winners...

*This LT account is a combined library with my wife and son. Separating out whose books are whose would be more trouble than it's worth. Plus we like to share.
