About meAn abiding love of literature has been the one constant in my life through the decades. An anglophile, I am most interested in novels and poetry from (and history of) the long 19th century: Romantic, Victorian, and Edwardian eras. Jane Austen, as my first literary love, has a special place in my heart. Pride and Prejudice was my favorite for many years (Elizabeth Bennet was my first literary crush), but now Persuasion rivals it in my affections. The Brontë sisters I have adored for many years as well. Percy Bysshe Shelley was my first poetic fancy. Lines or entire poems from Shelley and Dickinson, among others, were jotted from memory into my high school notebooks, transporting me from boredom to engagement.
About my libraryMy home library contains a few thousand books (and DVDs), but I'm also a public library user. The "borrowed: public library" collection denotes books checked out since early 2006 (I have no record of anything before then).
