About meI'm a professional adjunct. I teach in the departments of History, Women and Gender Studies and African and African American Studies. I like books.

About my libraryThese are books that live in my house. I have not read them all(yet). Most were bought used. And when I stumble on some good finds used, I scoop them up whether I have time to read them right then or not. I do have some doubles, mostly for sentimental reasons. I'm not quite done entering my books and I've made a huge mess of tagging them.
