About meMy undergraduate education was in biology and my masters was in library/information science.

I've lived in California all my life except for nine years just outside Washington, D.C. Right now I live in San Francisco.

I'm very bored because I have a chronic medical condition that keeps me from doing much of anything. On a really, really good day I can leave the house. So I spend a lot of time reading.

I don't think this test is particularly accurate. I'm not that much of a hist/lit nerd. On the other hand, my daughter and I will geek out about tetrodotoxin in salamanders or chromatophores in cuttlefish.

About my libraryThe library consists of my books, my husband's book, my daughter's books, and my son's books. That must be why the unsuggester doesn't work so good. I'm still looking for the person whose library is eerily like mine.
