About meFor money, I watch fluffy cable TV and edit the closed captions. For my sanity, I write novels (well, one novel currently, but I'm on the second draft and I have high hopes of finishing it at some point) and short stories. To kill time, I write pointless blog entries. And when I'm not writing, I'm reading obsessively. Oh, and watching Alias. That's about it.

About my libraryI tend to read fiction almost exclusively these days -- specifically novels. Several friends are trying to get me to expand to nonfiction, but so far their efforts have mostly been in vain. I don't blame them for this; they are good people. My mind, for some reason, just balks at the word "reality." I'm a big slipstream/sci-fi fan, and without a doubt, my favorite author in my library is Octavia E. Bulter. Why do the good ones have to die so young?

All that said, I do like nonfiction. And poetry. And plays. And short stories. And I have a few of each in my library. I feel you should "ooh" and "ahh" when you come across them.

I see I have a ridiculous amount of books about movies, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn. I recall purchasing/receiving approximately six of them.

Bridges of Madison County is in my library only because I'm originally from Iowa and was forced to read it in about three different college lit classes (seriously).

I have never once read anything because Oprah told me to, despite all evidence to the contrary in my library. However, I did once read something because Natalie Portman told me to when she was on Oprah. But don't hold that against me, because that book was Angle of Repose and my life has been much enriched by having Wallace Stegner in it. So thanks for that, I guess, Natalie.

Also, I'm a trade paperback junkie, and I'm so protective of my trades that they generally look even newer than they did when I bought them after I finish reading them. I have no idea how I accomplish this. You practically have to wear haz-mat suits and sign a ream of legal agreements in order to borrow books from me. Yep, I'm fun! :)
