About meRegretfully, I no longer live near the sea. Instead I live near two cemeteries! I am currently retired, but perhaps will work again in the future. I have bipolar disorder, but it doesn't have me! (Not usually, anyway.) My interests are music, violin, books (obviously, duh!), writing, journaling (I'm on LiveJournal, same name as here), performing arts (dance, opera and theater, in addition to music), mental illness, magick, witchcraft, neo-paganism and the history of modern witchcraft. Notice the profound lack of physical activity. I'm working on remedying that by taking walks. Oh, yeah, I like to work on kids' plastic needlepoint pictures. If you want I'll send you one. You can have a butterfly or a flower.

About my libraryMy library covers a wide variety of topics (I like to think) ranging from Llewellyn New Age and "Wicca" fluff, to the nitty gritty Craft stuff (history and practice), to current events and history (ancient to modern), politics, self-help, psychology, mental health, music, music science, music history, music performance, Pearl Jam, Judy Garland, Greta Garbo, needlework, poetry, journaling, diaries, the Holocaust, interior decorating, gardening, fiction, mystery, feminism, neo-paganism, Wicca, witchcraft, magickal reference books and more, but that's what I can lay my eyes on right now.

The star rating system works something like this: I don't see the point of giving a book one star. If it was that bad, with no redeeming social value, it gets no stars. 2 stars - the book was adequate to the task. 3 - average. 4 - stars - outstanding. 5 stars - exceptional, memorable, I'd give it more stars if I could.

Recently, I've discovered I'm interested in fashion, style and beauty. I have a blog dedicated to writing reviews of books on those topics on Blogspot, www.beautyandserendipity.blogspot.com

I also talk about beauty, style and fashion, shopping, spending, various attempts at budgeting, and a little interior decorating and home organization thrown in for good measure.

I've read a lot of books in my time, but I'm always buying more. Amazon.com is a dangerous thing! I read a lot more now that I'm retired, and I enjoy it.
