About My Library
My library covers a wide variety of topics (I like to think) ranging from Llewellyn New Age and "Wicca" fluff, to the nitty gritty Craft stuff (history and practice), to current events and history (ancient to modern), politics, self-help, psychology, mental health, music, music science, music history, music performance, Pearl Jam, Judy Garland, Greta Garbo, needlework, cookbooks, neuroscience, poetry, journaling, diaries, the Holocaust, interior decorating, gardening, fiction, mystery, feminism, neo-paganism, Wicca, witchcraft, magickal reference books and more.

The star rating system works something like this: I don't see the point of giving a book one star. If it was that bad, with no redeeming social value, it gets no stars. 2 stars - the book was adequate to the task. 3 - average. 4 - stars - outstanding. 5 stars - exceptional, memorable, I'd give it more stars if I could.
About Me
I am currently retired, and I volunteer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. I have bipolar disorder, but it doesn't have me! (Not usually, anyway.) My interests are music, violin, books (obviously, duh!), writing, journaling (I'm on LiveJournal, same name as here, and Dreamwidth, book_lover), performing arts (dance, opera and theater, in addition to music), mental health, magick, witchcraft, neo-paganism and the history of modern witchcraft, and needle arts.
