About meI'm a student with a lot of free time. My interests change all the time. I pretty much havent been bored since 1997. I think I am an introvert but am leaning on extrovert. I've been mad crunk lately!

About my libraryI own most of these books. I'm horrible at returning things to the library and on time. But guess what? Chicago finally came out of the stone age and upgraded their system to online renewal.

I love

anything about the african diaspora (hollaaaaaaaa!)
conspiracy theories
"what they dont tell you about..."
coming of age
teens in crisis/teen rebels
anything on sociology
self help

I don't have any children so the children's books that you see in my catalog are books that I read when I was younger. I'm a picky reader. I generally dislike classics and the fantasy genre.If it's a nonfiction book written in a conversational tone i.e. nonfiction personal essays/accounts/interviews/anthology on life from everyday real people, chances are I'll love it.

Holla at me if you like my catalog. If you don't like it, holla at me anyway.

thank you! : )
Hi! When librarything stops acting quirky, you've got some titles I want to add. Cool library!
I was looking at books and your library popped up so I started browsing. And you have a ton of books that just seem like they are right up my alley. Little by little I will check them out and add them to my wishlist. Maybe once I get around to reading something, I'll shoot you a message on what I think. Thanks for the message and maybe we'll get to chat sometimes.


TULIPS white and tulips red,

Sweeter than a violet bed!

Say, old Mother Bailey, say

Why your tulips look so gay,

Why they smell so sweet, and why

They bloom on when others die?

"By the pixies' magic power

Do my tulips always flower,

By the pixies' magic spell

Do they give so sweet a smell!

Tulips, tulips, red and white,

Fill the pixies with delight!

"Pixy women, pixy men,

Seek my tulips from the glen;

Midnight come, they may be heard

Singing sweet as any bird,

Singing their wee babes to rest

In the tulips they love best!"

Hi Homegirl,
thanks for the connection.
Thanks for adding me as an interesting library. Right now I'm busying uploading my library but I will come back and browse. Have a good day :)
Hey. You can combine the two editions, for example here:

Sorry for the late reply, Today is great for me!!
Thanks homegirl, for being my LT Friend and adding me to your Interesting Libraries
Welcome.How is the day?
Hi friend, Your Library lists are amazing.
Hi, happy to meet you here

Thank you for the quick response. Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a good week,
Lhea J.
Ok, you were on the list of people who are getting copies re-sent. I know those books are only just starting to trickle in, so hold on a little longer? Thanks for your patience :)

Hi Homegirl,

Thanks for making me a friend. It will take a few days but I'll check out

your library.

Hey, Homegirl! Thanks for leaving a note! I will add some of your selections to my wish list, too. Hope you have a great week!
homegirl, I like your library. It has a lot of interesting books that I would like to add to mine. Especially the books on adverting --- such as "Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben and Rastus..." and "Your Negro Tour Guide: Truths in Black and White".
Your Map is cool too!
Hi, Homegirl. I am reading a horror novel now -- The Tower by Brian Keene. I have a couple of dozen books on my waiting to be read list, including several young adult fiction. I read YA fiction not only for my job, but because I really do like it. I am also really into horror, supernatural stuff and fantasy -- if it is written by an African-American author, it's all the better. Your profile says you like books with a conversational tone. If so, I would recommend anything by J. California Cooper. I see that we have similar tastes in literature, fantasy notwithstanding. Educating myself about all aspects of culture of the African Diaspora is another great interest of mine -- hence the Afrocentric tags. It is my eventual goal to move to your part of the world to pursue a career in library science and immerse myself in Chicago life.
