About meI am a public services librarian at the Capital Area District Library in Lansing. I read a lot of contemporary literary fiction for work reasons, and a lot of less-contemporary fiction of various stripes for my own pleasure. I used to read a lot more genre fiction than I do now, but that may change. Most of my non-fiction reading right now is focused on topics of interest for writing reasons. Queer and radical social history crop up a lot, as do the First World War; the Spanish Civil War; natural history; travelogues; and various biographies that touch on any of those themes. I read thematically: if I'm interested in learning about female foreign correspondents in the early 20th century, that's all I'll want to read about for a few months.

About my libraryI use LibraryThing to keep tabs on what I've read, not what I own. Because I recommend (rather than review) books for work, my reviews here are overwhelmingly positive: they're intended to encourage people to find books that interest them, not to engage in a critical conversation. Most of them are posted on CADL's website
