Real Name
What? My real name *IS* SpongeBob Fishpants...
About My Library
I've got everything but romance and mystery. I've been reading more fiction the last year, trying to get around to reading some more classics, more award winners, and more novels dealing with current issues.
About Me
New decade, new profile. I'm a retired fisheries ecologist with more books than actually fit my home and I live in the woods near the Canadian border.

My days involve reading, drawing, training my new library cat, a Maine Coon named Emmett, and trying to organize my books so I can find what I want... Dewey Decimal style. I love rain, coffee, toast, my family, REALLY thick novels, and kindness. Kindness, empathy, and compassion are the three most important, and too often lacking, traits in the world and they are the ones that make every day living worth the experience.
