About meI'm a graduate student in cultural anthropology and library sciences, hoping to someday work in African collections in an academic library. Other than reading, I knit, play with my dog, watch way too much television, and perfect my virtual juggling on Wii.

About my libraryMy collection is about evenly split between fiction and nonfiction. Much of the nonfiction is anthropology, naturally, with much of the rest on current affairs and social justice issues. I also have a weakness for self-help books, and because I'm a grammar nerd, I have a shelf devoted to books on grammar and writing. The fiction books are primarily contemporary literature, with a heavy emphasis on female writers, but I also have some crime stories, young adult, and 19th century French books mixed in.
