The old design is no longer fully supported nor does it get full attention when we roll out new features. We strongly recommend using the new design.
About meI'm a 30-something married woman with a Bachelor's degree in History. I work in Corrections. (If you're a fellow history major, you shouldn't be surprised). We have no children but three cats, although children are potentially in our future. We've lived in Montana for the last ten-plus years, but we are hoping to move closer to our home state of California at some point to be closer to family (although we'd be happy not living in California again!).
About my libraryThe library consists of probably 95% my books; although the husband does have a fair number of his own, he's neither a voracious reader nor obssessive buyer of books in the same way that I am. He hoards his toys the way that I hoard my books, and what's represented here so far is only a fraction of the total. Sadly, a large portion of our novels were lost some years ago in a move, but we seem to have the majority of our hardbacks, gaming books, and of course all of my textbooks and heraldry books. Many of them are in storage, so they may not appear for some time... but they will eventually be here!
