About meI'm an academic librarian and slacker reader. I used to read a few books a week, but lately I've been struggling to get through one or two a month. However, it has been fun making my own catalog!

About my libraryI have purchased many books over the years that I have not yet read. Those are indicated by the unread tag. The other tags are used to group series. Books that are registered on BookCrossing are also tagged as such.

I decided to lump all science fiction, fantasy, and related genres under the umbrella of speculative fiction. Mostly because so often a single book contains elements of them all. I'm now going through and adding more specific genre categories, as well as expanding on tags for the books that are not genre fiction.

Hope you enjoyed yourself at Ravencon!

Hi Anna!

Love hooking up on LT as well as in the real world.

Thanks for your wonderul review of "Orphan's Quest" on Sorry it took e so long to post this. I'm getting lost in all these venues. Hope you enjoy "Scion's Blood". Take Care! -Patrick
I was just flicking through the photos of the Harry Potter book pile photos and I want to say that I agree wholeheartedly with your wish for more recognition for Diane Duane's series.

Ah. Interesting. I've read a couple more of his books (Lamb was certainly the one I liked best), which were recommended to me by a friend, and found myself repeatedly and heartily put off by his sculpting and treatment of female characters. Then, when I went to a previous incarnation of his website and read his brief essay on why he didn't consider female authors worth recommending--well, that did put a bit of a dent in my sense of humor.
> Woo-hoo! Another PK with a sense of humor who owns a copy of [Freezer Burn]. :)Freezer Burn? Between the word "oxymoron" and the name "Jeff MacNelly," I was immediately sold.

Speaking of a sense of humor, I have a question for you--what do you think of Christopher Moore?
I completely agree with you about the Harry Potter books. Liking them involves an element of comfort with faddishness and integrated corporate marketing . . . but I don't know if I would want to talk about that in a group setting. If you were a children's librarian, for example, I think you'd probably have a copy.
