About meI've loved books since I was very, very small, and devour dozens a year. I tried going to grad school in English, but it turns out no one there loved books as much as me. I left with my master's and taught middle school language arts for several years. Now I'm a part-time librarian!.

About my libraryI've collected a lot of books over the years, but most of what I read comes from the public library. I believe in putting "borrowed" books on LibraryThing because it allows for much more sharing of reviews.

I'm a big fan of British classics and "cozy" mysteries. In modern literature, I stay away from most so-called "literary" fiction, especially short stories. To me, it seems pretentious and whiny, and I feel it keeps the reader at arm's length. Other than that, though, I'll read almost anything--science fiction, the odd medical thriller, family sagas, sometimes essays or nonfiction (especially on science or medical topics for the general reader).
