About meI used to be a bookseller, and then I used to be a journalist, but before then I was a kid who liked to read a lot. At 30-years-old I still am. But sometimes I wonder if I may love owning and talking about books even more than reading them.

About my libraryMy big passions are classical novels and comic books, so my library contains much of both, with lesser but significant collections of Jewish, feminist and LGBTQ literature. I'm the first two but not the other. Sometimes I try to read plays and poetry but then I feel stupid later. And sometimes I just read what's popular, too, because I'm not that old yet.

When I started my LibraryThing I had 45 unread books. I've read most of them now. Alas, I also got depressed a few years ago and added well over 100 more to my collection. Most of the time I sit around mired in glee and trepidation wondering how I'll get through every one. Here's hoping.
