About meMy name is Emilie, and I prefer non-fiction books over fiction. (Hi, Emilie.)

I'm a veterinary technician at an emergency hospital. Aside from reading and collecting books, my hobbies include learning, animal training/behavior, gardening, and watching boats on the water. I spend most of my free time at the barn with my pony.

I spend a fair amount of time at the racetrack. There aren't many people on the backside that read often, but I think there's nothing better than to be done with chores, sitting reading in front of a horse stall in a comfy portable chair (oxymoron, but I'm sure there's *one* out there) waiting for the races to start.

My collection is focused on animal care. Most books are about horses and dogs, but there are plenty of agriculture, aquaculture, small mammal, laboratory animal, and veterinary medicine texts as well. I've only just started to collect older volumes, with horse books from the 1930s through 70s being my favorite.
