About meI like to find themes in and connections among stories, especially those found in folklore, picture books, and Buffy, the Vampire Slayer. I relatively recently received my MLS in the special libraries track from SCSU.

About my libraryLots of children's picture books and Judaica. Books included comprise a virtual library---books I own and books I have read and books I can get my hands on and books that are useful for colleagues. Adding them to this site is a work in progress.
Book covers are not always 100% accurate, but if they aren't close, they're not used.

Yes I can see why you might be in love with that library. I bet you'd like to be the librarian there! I just found another Aubrey book today to add to my books - slowly but surely I'll have them all.

How do you use the picture books to explore adult issues? It sounds like an interesting idea.
Yes there are some sequels to Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, but I don't think I'll be reading them in the near future. Spivet was much better than Flavia. I see you have Patrick O'Brian and Elizabeth Peters - I have a lot of her books and I am always looking for O'Brian's books at sales. I love his characters. I'm envious of your MLS, that's something I'd like to do too. My niece is in Library Sciences at the U of Calgary (I think) and she travels all over the place giving lectures.

Keep up the good recommendations!
Thanks for recommending the Selected Works of T.S. Spivet. I have read this book and wanted to add it to my "Read But Not Owned" collection but I couldn't remember the title. Your recommendation gave me the info I needed. It was a wonderful book, very imaginative.
A spoiler field where I could discuss a book more freely would be great.
