About meI live in the Boston area, have two kids, and am a devoted fan of science fiction.

About my libraryMy library consists primarily of science fiction and some fantasy, as well as some mysteries and other assorted randomosity. Of late, more nonfic seems to be creeping in as well. I'm interested in a wide variety of topics, so it's hard to find a theme. For now I just shelve all the nonfic together in a clump....

I've waffled on whether or not to add my kids' books, so some of them are here, but not all. Mostly the ones that I have read aloud to the kids recently.
