About meMy name is Emilie, and I prefer non-fiction books over fiction. (Hi, Emilie.)

I studied animal science, work in the veterinary field, and keep several kinds of critters. I spend a fair amount of time at the racetrack. There aren't many people on the backside that read often, but I think there's nothing better than to be done with chores, sitting reading in front of a horse stall in a comfy portable chair (oxymoron, but I'm sure there's *one* out there) waiting for the races to start.

My collection is focused on animal care. Most books are about horses and dogs, but there are plenty of agriculture, aquaculture, small mammal, laboratory animal, and veterinary medicine texts as well. I've only just started to collect older volumes, with horse books from the 1930s through 70s being my favorite.

The criminal justice items, along with everything else in the "Kyle" collection, belong to my SO. I cannot claim responsibility for anything in there except the animal books. His collection is mostly old textbooks, video gaming guides and comic books, but there are many boxes still to go through.
