About me"When I get a little money, I buy books. And if there is any left over, I buy food." -- Deciderius Erasmus

That quote was painted on the wall of one of the many bookstores I've worked in over the span of about eight years. I found it ironic because most of the time my paycheck went right back into the store. My book collection grew larger and larger, but I became poorer and poorer.

I am a returning student and a library assistant. I am slowly plodding down the long path to follow my dream of becoming a librarian.

About my libraryThis account is a birthday gift from a fellow book-loving friend. She has given me the excuse to spend more time with my books.

I buy books more often than I ever get a chance to read them. From chain bookstores where I used to work to tiny independent used bookstores. Library bag sales make me quake. I have books in stacks all over my house, in boxes under the bed, in piles on the floor of the attic, the backseat of my car. Maybe there are some in the freezer as well.
