About meI'm a mother, freelance writer, poet, and obsessive bookworm. I'd love to talk to others with similar tastes in literature.

About my libraryI am particularly fond of magical realism, surrealism, folklore and mythology from all cultures, fairy tales, monsters, the supernatural and anything strange or fortean. And, yes, I really do read my books, all of them eventually. My idea of paradise would be my books, a never-ending cup of coffee, and my kids playing quietly (or, perhaps, reading too) on the other side of the room.

Books I would be delighted to find, should anyone spot a copy.
1.) Any nice hardcovers by Ruth Manning-Sanders. I want to collect her entire set of fairy tale anthologies eventually. So far, I have only one.

I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library. - Jorge Luis Borges

A room without books is like a body without a soul. - Cicero

Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. - C.S. Lewis

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

The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven. - John Milton, Paradise Lost

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. - Shakespeare

In an utilitarian age, of all other times, it is a matter of grave importance that Fairy tales should be respected. - Charles Dickens

Build yourself a book-nest to forget the world without. - Abraham Cowley

Far more seemly were it for thee to have thy study full of books, than thy purse full of money. - John Lyly

I couldn't live a week without a private library - indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.
- H.P. Lovecraft
