- About My Library
- Just what is a library? The one I work in, the one I own. What does it mean? What do the books I own have to do with who I am? Where did I get all these books, and why? Greek history? Classic noir? (Hey, isn't that Michael Stipe in the author gallery? And as I add in more titles, will this tear him away from Martha Stewart?) The saga continues...
- About Me
- I'm a librarian in my home town of Seattle. If you happen to be in downtown Seattle and you're in a large library and you're looking at fiction, I just might walk up and pester you. I'm also a contributor to Booklist, Library Journal, the NoveList database and some other library-related things you're not likely to have heard of, and participate on the Fiction_L listserv and with the Readers Advisors of Puget Sound. I plan to do some blogging some day at my site, guybrarian.net. Otherwise, I'll be hanging around w/ my Glorious Wife and our Cats, Gardening, Walking, Swimming, Biking, Taking In Movies Music Art Culture Hi & Lo, Writing, Reading, and Playing Library.
