About meI'm a one time Classics Professor turned Stay-at-Home Mom/Lady of Leisure. I have a great love for books, naturally, and also lists. Lists of books are right up there for me (I have more than a few books that are lists of books, and I have a feeling that I'm not alone in this here). I have to admit that I'm a bit shy about becoming 'public.' I'm nervous about others looking at my books - is that weird? Anyway, I also love sewing and knitting, watching bad B-horror films, and I quite enjoy teaching as well. However, I'm not fond of talking about myself, so I'll just end this here.
About my libraryThis catalog includes both my books and my husband's, which explains the science/humanities mix. As much as I'd like to claim polymath status, those physics books nearly got tagged under 'magic', since that's my general assessment of their contents (For example, here's an actual snippet of conversation between my husband and me: "How do you think magnets work?" My answer: "Magic?").
