About meIn childhood and adulthood, books save my life. I developed a nervous system disease when I was 19 and had to stop working when I was 20. I'm a queer person and recently realized just how desperate I was for more LGBTQ+ stories, fiction and non-fiction.

I live in West Virginia with a fat cat and a craft supply collection/hoard.

About my libraryI mostly only buy books that I've already read and loved. I re-read a lot but new books I always get from the library. I've started collecting old school books (1900-1930s), which show up with surprising frequency at the local Habitat ReStore, and let me say, mathematics curriculum used to be WAY more useful and interesting.
