About meI'm Lisa, and I'm a bilioholic. Welcome to my world.

I'm currently an unemployed librarian, professional book reviewer, book award judge (literary fiction), member of the National Book Critics Circle and some other stuff.

In addition to being a book collector and former online bookseller, I've also owned a book search company in the past. I think you could say books rule my life.

I hold a B.A. in English literature from Dominican University, River Forest, IL, and soon hope to pursue my Master's in Library and Information Science.

About my libraryI have a large library of 18th and 19th century works (mostly re-prints, alas) as well as boatloads of more contemporary stuff, including books that haven't even been published for the masses yet (REVIEW COPIES!!).

I love old leatherbound books in fine bindings, and have a few of those as well. Modern Library edition books are another interest, as well as older Penguin editions, New York Review Books, Europa Books, Hesperus Press, Virago, Persephone, etc.

I have a few Folio editions, a few Easton Press leatherbounds and lots of signed books by contemporary authors.
