About meI am currently embarking on a lifelong career of getting a ph.d. in every field known to man. So far I haven't made up my mind which one to start with, so this could be a long road. I'm a bibliophile who unabashedly loves to judge books by their covers (if they're fat with rough-cut pages I'm in love). Whenever we move my husband looks for apartments on the first floor so he doesn't have to carry the books up the stairs. Unfortunately for him, we always find second-floor apartments.
About my libraryMy undergraduate career in Russian literature and my master's degree in U.S. history (emphasis on 19th century) have helped build my library (which I very reluctantly weed out every once and a while when we move). But several bookstore jobs with a discount made matters worse. I have the best intentions, but I tend to accumulate more than I can read. But at least I know that if I'm ever snowed in for weeks at a time, I won't be bored!
