About meI love books. (Stating the obvious is my superpower.) I work as a genealogy librarian. It's pretty muchly my dream job. When I'm not working, I'm reading or wasting time on the internet. I'll read practically anything, but my favorite genres are theology, mystery, and speculative fiction. I am an inveterate tea drinker, Anglophile, TV crime drama junkie, and occasional gamer. I love RPGs, but I don't get to play as much as I'd like, as I'm between computers at the moment. I am super-introverted (maybe that's my superpower?) but I will talk your ear off once I get to know you.

About my libraryFairly straightforward, I think. I have a custom classification system which is explained in excruciating detail here, along with my ratings rubric. (Except I don't find it excruciating because I'm a cataloging and taxonomy nerd.)
