About My Library
I know that some people insist on streamlining their libraries, or collect specific titles and genres. Me? I want EVERYTHING. I want to see Clive Barker rubbing shoulders with Oscar Wilde and Dorothy Parker. I want to surround the boring chick-lit stuff I get for Christmas with HP Lovecraft and see if something interesting rubs off. I want piles of books about far-flung destinations - real and fictional. Anything goes and everyone is welcome.
About Me
I'm an avid - if indiscriminate - reader. Since I spend so much time in the car these days, a lot of my reading is done by audiobook, but nothing is quite as satisfying as curling up with a good hardcover book. I enjoy good books, good movies, good wine and smart, funny people to share them with. I'm a fairly talented cook (hence the big collection of cookbooks) and a bit crafty (see: books on quilting, cross-stitch, knitting, etc.) I appreciate well-chosen words, I'm a bit of a grammar freak, I don't watch much tv (although I am devoted to the things I do watch) but I spend a ton of time on the internet. I talk about books on forums, on Goodreads, and on other websites, but this is by far my favorite book place.
