About meI have a master's degree in Astronomy (University of Maryland), and I work for the Hubble Space Telescope.

I love cats, and I currently have 2, Quigley and Illyria. My husband is Kyle Vick, who got his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Maryland, and who teaches Psychology at Shawnee State University.

I also collect stuffed animals (plush), realistic species not just toys, and I have over 850, representing about 700 or so different species. Wish there was a PlushThing!

About my libraryMostly fantasy, (especially dragons and vampires) also science, (astronomy, physics, math, animals etc.), history and other.
Includes most of my favorite children's books.
Most of the Philosophy and Neuroscience books are Kyle's.

See the photos of the fantasy/fiction section of my library in my member gallery!

While I don't own every book in my catalog, I do own every book in my "My Library" collection. (As well as technically the omnibus parts and the Great books since these are just subworks in books I own).

Love the bookcases and the space for the sword. I have a airship propeller in the corner of my library but I'd love to build in the space for it to make it fit better.

What a beautiful and inspiring library!
The addition of the picture & info on C.C. Li are great. And it made your Dad happy to have it added where more folks may see it.
Wow. They do look the same!! Both gorgeous. :)
Well, Milady wakes everyone up (meows until we don't get up or just jumps on you) to feed her. Emma, the other cat, has to be followed around and forced to eat.

This is beautiful.
Thanks for the comment re the Spine Poetry. Been there, done that, so I couldn't resist. This has been a lot of fun.
