About meI'm a journalist and ex-bookseller. I like to read a lot of different things, and love to expand my horizons. I'd like to be something of a renaissance woman. Just ... a weird renaissance woman whose interests include classical books, Judaism, comic books, politics, feminism and the satanic ritual abuse scandals (even if I haven't read any books on the last one, yet).

About my libraryMy library mostly contains books that I own and am planning to keep (or haven't read yet). I recently started a "books I've read but don't own list," but it's pretty recent. Mostly I just keep track of what I own and like.

General things I would like to add to my library: more books related to The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, more Charles Dickens, more Chaim Potok, Russian literature as translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, a collection of The 1,001 Nights/Arabian Nights, more pulp-tastic stories of mystical women who kill things, more books on Judaism, more books on journalism, more books on feminism, more classic sci-fi/fantasy, more comic books and some books on the satanic ritual abuse scandal, of course.

I found a place to start reading H.P. Lovecraft. I think I'll be able to get a lot more jokes now.
