About me*Looks around* Is this supposed to be like one of those centerfold inserts? My likes and turn-ons? Okay, well, I like books obviously, since the only books listed on here are the ones I've collected in the last couple of years, the main body of my library still being in storage in California and not listed yet. Yes, I'm a hoarder, what's your point? Now, lessee, I'm a hopeless dork who loves coffee, road trips, bad weather, animated movies, pinyon incense and loud music. I don't like people that can't accept apologies, hummers (the car, people, the car), slime eels, book snobs or liver.

Books. I'm not on Facebook or MySpace or any other social network and I don't watch T.V. anymore as it cuts into my reading time and besides, I can feel my brainwaves flattening out. The majority of what I read is actually nonfiction, usually science, nature, travel or adventure oriented, although I have a secret guilty stash of well loved post-apocalyptic/dystopian novels. And I love good hard S.F. Well, until the physics gets hopelessly beyond me (I hope Greg Bear is paying attention, I STILL can't figure out the layout in "Eon"). I like fiction but only in small doses . I have no interest in, and subsequently no knowledge of, the romance, mystery, or self-help genres so I wont be reviewing or recommending any. Well, that's not entirely true, I do have 2 or 3 mystery books I guess.

I'm a fisheries ecologist who is married to my best friend, the coolest electrician in the PNW. We have kids. We have 2 cats, a 20-lb Maine Coon with separation anxiety and a yen for oatmeal and a 6 lb fussbudget who disapproves of my housekeeping. I'm teaching myself home canning and foraging techniques. I'm an artist. I own the same tennis shoes in various colors and I consider the good ones to be formal wear and lastly, I'm a vegetarian with a weakness for avocados, celery root and tomato sandwiches on sourdough.

If you are at all interested in what I'm currently reading, and I cannot imagine why you would be, BUT... check my library under the tag "currently reading".

I can't think of anything else at the moment but you are welcome to email and ask if you have any burning questions.

**Update: I'm also adding a new genre to my library, "Books you got from the library that are too thick to read comfortably in the allotted time." I've decided 2 weeks to read 7 1000-page books is just not at all relaxing. Go figure.

About my libraryIt's the best one on LT. So there.
