About me30-something librarian. Most days I wish I was my cat.

About my libraryI like FUN books and movies - fantasy, science fiction, weird/new weird, steampunk, horror, young adult, graphic novels/manga, anything with superheroes, etc. Basically, as long as it's FUN (and maybe a little bit clever!) but I'm not into reading weighty "literary" tomes, so. I also am interested in non-fiction, particularly history and mythology/folklore studies, but again if it's written to be engaging and "readable" that is a definite plus.

I borrow a lot of books from the public library, I also give a lot of books away when I am finished with them, so I like the LT feature that lets you divide books between "owned" and "read but unowned" collections - my books frequently flip between these categories!

A note about my "ratings". . . when I rate a book out of five stars on librarything I don't rate it based on how technically "good" a book is and I don't rate based on how I think the world or history should view the book. I only give a star rating based on my own personal enjoyment level the last time I read it.
