About meI am a Librarian at a small university in Northern California. When I'm not instilling the love of reading and firing up people's intellectual curiosity (I wish), I love to dance, watch movies, ride motorcycles, go to museums, and watch demolition derbies.

About my libraryMy library reflects my interest in the esoteric, philosophy, folklore, poetry, language, fantasy, and literature.

Thanks for the nod amyw71 ~ glad you find my library of interest. Kinda fun to see books we share. From your profile I gather you work at Dominican College, live in SF's Outer Richmond? I'm in Brisbane. In my next life, I wanna be a librarian! For most of this one (29+ years) I was exhibit developer at the California Academy of Sciences, laid off when it moved to SOMA for the GG Park rebuild and, astonishingly, decided never to produce its own exhibits anymore. Chronically underemployed in a nascent career as a personal property appraiser, actually have time to read fiction for the 1st time in decades!
As a woman who rides motorcycles, you might enjoy "The Perfect Vehicle: What It Is About Motorcycles" by Mellisa Pierson. As a literary person who rides motorcycles, you might enjoy "Riding With Rilke: Reflections on Motorcycles and Books" by Ted Bishop. Both are well written and insightful about the enduring attraction of motorcycles, particularly European ones.
