About meDon't you wonder sometimes?

About my libraryA work in progress.

This catalog encompasses two library collections in my home. The first is my own. The second belongs to my partner, Rob. We have lived together for ten years, but our books are still shelved separately.

All other information in this profile, including favorite authors, libraries, bookstores, and so forth, pertain to me.

UPDATE: After 12 years living together, in April 2014 Rob and I moved into a new apartment and took the huge step of integrating our libraries. My hardbacks are still a bit surprised to find themselves pressed up again Rob's ragged little paperbacks, but they're getting used to one another.
