About meUndisciplined collector of books and inveterate reader. Reading interests range widely, currently leans towards ancient history, archaeology, mythology, earth & space sciences, personal essays, science fiction & urban/dark fantasy. However, fiction is in the ascendant over the last year or so.

Dear Kerrie,
Thanks for accepting! Yeah, I wish the same. I REALLY want to be able to read, knit, and watch TV at the same time! Every time I add a book I look to see how many other people have read it and what those people are reading. I haven't been knitting much lately because I just can't seem to find the time. I miss it so much, especially when I check out ravelry or knitty. I've been doing simple things like washcloths and such because I don't have to think too much. Oh well, after the holidays, right?
Mary Ellen
Dear Kerrie, I sent a friends request because I noticed that you and I share a lot of reading interests. I came across your page because I wanted to see who else owned the Frances Partridge book , A Bloomsbury Album. Also, I see you like to knit. Me too! Thanks, Mary Ellen
