About meproblem solver: technology and yarn.

I have a soft spot for science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, music, knitting, spinning, and a good fairy tale.

About my libraryWe recently finished renovating our home library. The books listed here are just a small bit of what I own, not all that I've read. As I unpack and shelve I will add to these virtual shelves.

I also use public and University libraries obsessively.
