About meI wanted to be a librarian when I grew up, but you had to study two foreign languages so I gave up and majored in history. Now I'm a technical writer for big computer systems so I guess I ended up telling people how to find information anyway. I also thought I'd be an author when I grew up, but discovered that I don't have any stories to tell, at least not ones with any kind of arc that somebody else might like to read. I do have a talent for making up entertaining lies.

I live in the Silicon Valley with my husband, two cats, two turtles, and stuff we buy at flea markets. I'm crow on The Well.

About my libraryI buy used books almost exclusively, for the price and the unexpected finds. I inherited my love of books from my parents, along with my father's large library of science fiction and fantasy. Although we have bookcases in every room, I still have boxes and boxes of books in the garage. My big plan is to use LibraryThing to catalog those with some kind of scheme for numbering the boxes, so I can find books. Well, I can dream.

Love this room!
Thanks for the kind comments.
That's funny because that was exactly what I was thinking when I first looked at our shared books - Tove Jansson next to Octavia Butler - strange indeed.
Hi

Thanks for adding me to your "interesting libraries".

Kind Regards
hej hej Elizabeth,

many thanks for adding me to your 'interesting libraries', I love to be on people's lists! Love the picture of your living room - apparently some people live without books near them ....shudder.

Best wishes,

Ruth
Hi Elizabeth,

thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries. I think I'll return the favour since any fan of Miss Pettigrew is sure to have plenty of books that will appeal to me (I foresee more damage to my wishlist ahead!)

Hope you're having a great day!

Ilana
Thanks! I will plan to look for the museum. I just heard of a Balkan museum in Silverlake that I want to see. Aren't the little things adorable? On my blog I had a photo of one of the lizard ones when I posted the review. Too cute.

Take care, and find the book! It's supposed to be released in paper in the US now I think...I read the UK version. I'll let you know if I see it around.

Amy
I see you have Home Fires by Katz. Did you read this and did it make an impression on you ?
I thought you may be interested in a new thread of mine. Check it out.

happy new year BTW

grelobe
I take that as a very high compliment. Thank you. I have looked through some of your library and found it quite interesting as well. I might take a closer look in order to get some reading recommendations. It appears that you have organized your library in such a way that it would be easy for me to do that. Thank you again. IsolaBlue
Thanks for adding me. Pleased to meet you!
thanks for the innarestin vote, fellow fantasy librarian...
Wow, what a great collection of graphic novels you have, Elizabeth! Thanks for being on LT! You've given me a lot of ideas for future reading.

Hope you enjoy Scott Pilgrim.

Best wishes - Joe
I remember that scene too. "Lancelot's a churl, beaten by a girl!"

But at the time I decided to chalk it up to "Gosh, Lancelot's friends are terrible, terrible people!" and not worry about it.
There are currently (as of 8/8/2010) only two people on Library thing that have a copy of Mailmen's dog stories. The reason I have one is because I wrote one of the stories many years ago when I was a mailman. How did you get your copy?
You are right! Mad for Keeps and Stealing the Mystic Lamb are an unlikely combo -- and a sign of a diverse and intriguing library. Happy to meet, and explore your great collection of books. All best, Elizabeth
Hi I just got your message, I don't check this account much. I'm glad you like my blog and thank you for reading!

Greetings ! :) Favor to ask .. When you read this book let me know what you think .. She certainly pops up often in Vanessa's world and I'm tempted to get a copy ..

Gwen Raverat: Friends, Family and Affections
by Frances Spalding

Hope all is good ..

Joe
Good point. I was thinking of the tags as being something for other folks to use, but yes, for me, having French and Saint-Gaudens and Fraser and Bitter tagged makes it less likely that I'll overlook some one when I get around to really doing that book. Hopefully the world as we know it will not come to an end in 2012 that that project will actually happen.
After that it's fountains, I think. eeek
If I do start a wish-list here I probably will begin with your cemetery link. However before I do that I think I'll add a bunch of "cemetery" tags to my stuff, see what I can pull together. I am undecided whether to include books about sculptors who did a few cemetery pieces in my tagging. Probably not but I am open to suggestion. Daniel Chester French's "Death and the Sculptor " (or something) is one of America's great monuments, so should books that included it be tagged as "cemetery?" Tune in next week for the answer. eek
Wee I have it entered at 1001, but since Vi is just returning from a month on the road later this afternoon it might be a while before 1002 happens. My cemetery book is #3, behind "Shadowing Parducci" and "A guide to the architectural sculpture of America." What are your books? eek
Shortly after I started entering my cemetery section I discovered a new book ([The American resting Place] 2008) while wandering through other folks books (or maybe it was at a talk page?) and ordered it, used. it just arrived today, so it could be a reading evening. I have a book that I am writing (one of many) called "a guide to cemetery sculpture in America" and it will consist primarily of works for which there is a known author - be it sculptor, carver or monument company. I am always looking for kindred spirits. eek
You showed up as someone who liked my library and now that I've looked through yours I can see why, only . ..... only I have not entered some of the books that you just gotta see. Read. Whatever. I decided to stop at 1,000 just to take a break - mostly due to the fact that I've scanned covers for about half of them and that has turned out to be a tedious process. NOT like looking through your titles (and covers). I've not started a "wish list" but looking at your collection makes me wish I had. Life is good. eek
Booked Marked? Wonderful! .. adding your photos?.. Equally Wonderful!
Good , were connected by libraries :)) . yes piemouth, I totally agree, Bloomsburies are a fascinating group and each of them I find are individually fascinating. and I thought the late 60's early 70s were exicting! .

Happy to meet you

Joe
The random work button:
This link - http://www.librarything.com/random.php?type=work - takes you to a random work. I have a button for it on my bookmarks toolbar in Firefox. It's where I start when I'm looking for some cleaning up to do (combining and separating works and authors, etc.).
thanks for adding my library to your favourites , I reciprocate
She was called Mord Em'ly, after the heroine of an 1898 book by W. Pett Ridge about a girl gang in Waterloo, London.
I bought Musrum in, I guess, 1969, when I was at university and doing my best to take on board a bit of hippie-dom. I think it had enjoyed heavy publicity. Not really me, to be honest. I had discovered Raymond Chandler at around the same time. Much more in character.

Sounds like a very interesting life. Now that I am "retired", really by default, and have time to read I realize that it does take time so don't dispair. Keep collecting. For the moment I have solved my storage problem with crates that at first I arranged by general topic, now just as the books come in. I have assigned a crate number as a Tag. Unfortunately my only storage option has been a less than idea basement. I would like to have them around me in some order. I did become a librarian...40 years...and miss being able to locate things easily.
