About meThat picture is of me (2nd from left) and my friends (L to R) sophiek, nataliepm, and Taylor with our full Harry Potter collections the night Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released. Natalie wins, hands down.

About my libraryI have a lot of books. Working in publishing (and having previously worked in a bookstore) only makes it worse. I catalogued everything I own in '06 or '07, and I've been pretty faithful about keeping it up since then, but I'm sure this list has a few inaccuracies.

I'm a big science fiction and fantasy geek, which should be pretty clear from my tags, but I'll read pretty much anything. I'm especially always on the lookout for good nonfiction.

I'm not very good at keeping my "Currently reading" collection up-to-date, but the currently reading tag is almost always right.
