About meWife and mother to three cats, Athena, Rodney, and Inara, and two children, Oliver and Linus.

I love to read (obviously). My job as a bookseller at one of the major bookstore chains helps me keep up with my book collection. I love Nebraska, my home, although I doubt you'll find me a typical (*ahem* conservative) Nebraskan. I'm very close to my family. I am pretty much obsessed with Gone with the Wind, both the book and the film, and anything and everything Disney. Je parle le français aussi.

About my libraryI've recently discovered the fantasy genre; I've always loved kid/teen fantasy (i.e. Harry Potter), but now I'm getting into Robert Jordan, Terry Goodkind, George R. R. Martin, etc. But I still have a soft spot for epic romances, like GWTW and the the Outlander series.

Brandon Sanderson is my very favorite author.

I put a piece of myself into every book I read, so I generally have to keep them. As of now, I remember when and where I got each book, but this system will help in case that should ever change. :) My collection ranges from books from my childhood, to books from my college courses, to books I've collected since I started working at the bookstore. Everything in "Your Library" is actually physically in my home. Yes, it's a lot, and I desperately need more shelves.

A note on my rating system:
It's rather slapdash. I have a hard time comparing books to each other. Two books may have the same rating, but it's very possible I could have a favorite between them.

5 stars: Absolute favorite. Can be current fave, or from my childhood without rereading it. Or just a favorite within a genre.
4 1/2 stars: So close.
4 stars: Quite excellent.
3 1/2 stars: Better than average.
3 stars: I liked it but didn't love it. Good enough to read the whole thing, but not earth-shattering. Most of the books in my library are rated at 3 stars.
1 - 2 1/2 stars: Worse than average, but probably good enough for me to read the whole thing.
1/2 star: Terrible. Won't finish.
