About meSoon-to-be-graduated MA student in folk studies and historic preservation. When I'm not bogged down in coursework, I'm dancing or, in my rare non-exhausted states of mind, reading still more. My rate of acquiring books has not slowed to the same extent as my rate of actually reading said books, and alas, my TBR pile has become practically unmanageable at this point.

Currently I'm most interested in colonial/early America and religion, especially New Religious Movements and communal societies. Volunteering at a Shaker historic site is only enabling. :)

About my libraryI have pretty eclectic tastes. Most of my library is children's/YA plus a lot of "classics" and other old(er) books. I used to collect (and still do sometimes) "vintage" children's mysteries such as Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, Dana Girls, and Ruth Fielding. My current literary interests include pre-1950 sci-fi/fantasy novels, world fiction, and modern dystopias, utopias, and magical realism, as well as retellings, add-ons, etc. of classic stories and novels. And books for my fields of study and profession (folklife, historic communal societies, new religious movements, archaeology, etc.).

My ratings:
5 stars - great book, loved it, perfect
4 stars - pretty good book, decent read
3 stars - hated it (children's books in a large series - i.e., Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, etc. - are often rated like this just because they're all basically the same)

Groups18th Century British Literature, Archaeology, Arthurian Legends, Bloggers, Dear America, dystopia, Dystopian novels, Fairy Tales Retold, Feminist SF, Geeks who love the Classicsshow all groups
