About meBibliophile and bookseller. I work at the Book Bazaar in Ottawa. Mahāyāna enthusiast. When I'm not reading (or, let's be honest, cataloguing and sorting), I'm cooking, creating music, and playing JRPGs.

About my libraryMy library is named Mímisbrunnr or Mímir's Well Library. This is after the Norse myth in which the Well is "the fountain of all wit and wisdom". The name reflects my desire for my library be a collection of both knowledge & wisdom, as well as reflecting my interest in religion and myth. The library contains works on ancient history, books, Buddhism, literature, neuroscience, the occult, paganism, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, religion, witchcraft, et cetera. Mímir's Well is an anti-library; I feel no pressure to read all the books that it contains.
