About meI am a recently married book collector. My husband and I had a book themed wedding/pig roast. When I was five I cataloged all my Golden Books. I'm a banker but I should have been a librarian. Although these days being a librarian seems to be more about computers than about books. I'm addicted to reading, my computer, and my iPod. I really don't need another obsession but it looks like it's too late! I'm now hooked on LibraryThing.:)

About my libraryI'm always reading something. We are running out of space for more book shelves and have books stacked on the floor. I will never live long enough to read them all but I intend to try.

I read biographies, memoirs, fairy tales, mysteries, fantasy, books about books, and most fiction. I also collect books about knitting, music, music biographies, psychology, and cooking.

I knew my husband was a catch when we went to a bookstore on one of our first dates and he spent $200 on books. A good sign!

Noticed you liked Girl Interrupted, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed young girl's mental illness and also a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Wow! We have a lot of books in common and I'm not even close to entering everything!
Hi Jooly,
I did become a librarian because I love books so much. I do still love being a librarian, but you're right that it really involves knowing a lot a bout computers, and not much about books. I think I always imagined having lots of time to sit around and read, but its just like any other job, especially if you're in management like I am. I look forward to watching what else you catalog that we have in common. I really love Jasper Fforde's books, too.
Cheers, Janoorani
