About meI was born and raised in Alaska. I have also lived in Australia, Washington State, Ireland, and now the Bay Area.

I have a masters in religious studies. My thesis was on contemporary feminist Mariology.

About my libraryMy library contains many books that aren't actually mine, but that joined my library when my partner and I moved in together. I included all of the things I liked that I intend to read. I left out the books of his that I will never read (for instance Infinite Jest) and every issue of the Goon. My collection is also filled with many theology books reflecting my various interests in that field.

Dear ewigweibliche:

I noticed that you have James & Patricia Deetz's "The Times of Their Lives" on your reading list, so I thought you might be interested in a book I wrote, "Thanksgiving: The Pilgrims' First Year in America." It's been getting very good reviews and ratings here at LibraryThing and over at Goodreads.com.

You can read excerpts at NLLibrarium.com/librarything/thanksgiving.html . You can order it there, too, at a special discount offered to anybody who agrees to write a review of the book.

Note that is NOT a book about a holiday. it's about a bunch of PEOPLE and everything they did, everything that happened to them, in every detail I could find about them.

Let me add that this would be a good Father's Day gift for any fathers you happen to know who have an interest in history or the founding of America. What could be better for fathers than forefathers? If you get it as a gift, I recommend the hardcover edition, which has a red ribbon bookmark in it - the kind of book a father will want to pass on to a daughter or son. I'll be glad to sign the book and write a dedication in it. Just let me know what to write ("For my favorite forefather," for example, or "For my nephew the father" or whatever you like.)

As you'll see from the excerpts, it's a different kind of history - very graphic and dramatic but always sticking strictly to the facts. It's a book for everyone, not just historians. It covers just about every known detail about what happened in that crucial year between the landing of the Mayflower and the famous harvest feast of the following autumn.

I hope you get a chance to read it.

Sincerely,

Glenn Alan Cheney

Hi! Where did you do your work? I'm interested since I do Marian studies as well. Have an awesome day!
I found your LibraryThing link on your LJ, checked it out, and now I've brought home a bar code scanner from the store so I can start to enter our library. OMG, we have a ton of books, even after our recent purge. eye_of_zohar is a completeist book fiend! :)
Hi!

We share a book The Historical Mary: Revealing the Pagan Identity of the Virgin Mother by Michael Jordan. I saw that you rated it 1 star and with your thesis on feminist Mariology I'm intrigued. If you don't mind sharing I would love to know your thoughts on this book and why you rated it this way.

Thank you!

Hi, I just wrote a review of Nigel Slater's Appetite. Then I read yours, and I couldn't agree with you more. Yum!
Just got your funny self-description. Nice to talk to you today! Hopefully I will see you around in the coming semester. joni
Thank you for your nice comment. Actually we are neighbors if you live in Temescal.
