About meOpinions!!! I haz them!!! (And you're welcome to have them too! Ah, the beauty of the internet.)

Feminist, atheist, lieder-loving freak. I like Berlioz, Bartók, Bandō Tamasaburō V (五代目 坂東 玉三郎) and Burgundy. As well as Tiptree, Tokaj, and Takemitsu. Also adore alliteration.

About my libraryThis is currently only a limited part of my existing library. E books and books in languages other than English tend to be underrepresented here. I hope to add more of my books as improvements to the cataloging features are made.
