About meI'm a librarian and historian living in the Midwest with two cats and myriad books. I'm a Christian, hot tea addict, Anglophile, TV crime drama junkie, and occasional gamer. I love learning about almost anything.

Changed my mind again. If I move the two Milne books of poetry, they'll go to Arts.Poetry, leaving the other two in Literature.Fantasy. I think I'll just leave them all in

Man, it is a puzzle thinking these things through. I'm glad we're not being graded on it! :D
You certainly did do a grand analysis! :D
I looked at the books we share to see how your system matched with mine. Pretty good! Except you say Milne is poetry and I say it is fantasy. I think you are right, and I am going to change mine.

I just recently re-read Eeyore's Gloomy Little Instruction Book. That is definitely poetry, in my opinion. I don't know why I don't have that catalogued... hmmm.

Your profile mentioned hot tea, so I am sipping my favorite, Constant Comment. It has all of my childhood secreted inside its seasonings.

Thanks for your message. :)

I cannot tell you how THRILLED I am about, and how PERFECT your SantaThing choices are!!!! I'm very excited to read all of them, but "Sorcery & Cecelia" is the one I'm most itching to crack open. It looks so fantastic, I can hardly wait!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!! I'm so glad that you were my Santa!

I hope you had/are having a very Merry Christmas!

Thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries! :)

I thought I'd check out my Calvin, but unfortunately it's in a pile that I can't deal with right now. A project for later!
Being here often is one of the great joys of retirement. I still feel guilty, but then, I wouldn't be out doing good if I were not here, I don't suppose. I did think of joining the Guardian Ad Litem program here, but DH quashed that idea as being too dangerous. I did case work in Charlotte, N.C. in the late 60s, but that was a walk in the park (in the daylight) compared to heading into a poor black or Indian neighborhood now. How did I get off on that?!?!?
I look at papers I wrote in school and marvel both at the pretension and the depth of thought.
Nice to talk to you!
Uh oh. The witching hour has come, and I'm off to bed! But with a book.
How nice that you're here now!
I think that Calvin is meant to be read slowly. You make me feel guilty though. I'm not sure that I should be devoting my time to anybody who doesn't deserve to be read slowly. Reading poorer quality somehow tricks me into thinking that I have more time alive and able to read than I actually do.
I'll have to look at my copy to see when it was translated. Do you need that extra challenge? I know I don't have anything but the selections that I read in college.
Wow! You're reading Calvin. I did it in school and picked him up (an put him down) for his 500th birthday, but I'd be hard pressed to say that I'm reading the Institutes. You go!
Hi, there are shockingly few Hoosiers among the LT crowd, it's good to have one in Club Read this year.
Thanks for the interesting library add! :)
I'm pleased as can be that you find my library interesting! We certainly share a number of the same interests, and 246 of the same books.
You are quite a reader; I envy your ability to read well over 100 books a year and be in school and hold down a part-time job! Just think what you're going to be able to read by the time you retire!
Now I'm off to check your 75 thread, and I'll look forward to what you have to say there.
