About Me
I like books, all sorts. If it has words or pictures, I will probably read it.

My favorite genres are nonfiction (science, nature, animals), historical fiction, magical realism, and fantasy. I adore folklore and myths, especially those of the British Isles and Ireland.


I am not fond of politics, military campaigns, graphic violence, or steamy romance.
Location
