About My Library
My library overwhelms my home a bit, but I am devoted to it. Most of it is contained in shelving(11 units and counting!) and at the moment a few are stacked on the floor. My pantry, coffee table, entertainment center,luggage serve as book storage.

Since I live in the city with the most independent bookstores, I love to take advantage of their proximity and so I spend too much time in them. I'm usually drawn to speculative fiction, vampires and/or steampunk and/or zombies, etc. Nevertheless, most of my collection is art books that inspire me and zoology texts because studying animal behavior just butters my toast.


About Me
I have a zoology degree, work with animals, and am an avid artist, creating mixed media. After living all over the country,I now live in the Pacific Northwest.

Currently obsessed with thrift scoring, estate sales, working in my art studio, and enjoying my niece.

And I like reading from real books, the kind with paper and ink, the kind that I can loan to friends and allow to get lovingly tattered, and the kind that help me strike up conversations with strangers who comment on the cover. But I'm okay with reading smut on the Kindle ;)
