About meI am a geek, a nerd, and a child at heart who still loves all the things loved in childhood. I like science fiction/fantasy books & TV, cartoons, and games of all types, including board games, video games, card games, and role-playing games. I love animals, especially cats, but I don't have any pets because my partner is allergic. I collect My Little Ponies, obscure stuffed animals, and moose-related furnishings. I am a pack-rat: I just like STUFF and I like cataloging it all. For the most part, my library speaks for me better than I can myself. When I am not spending too much time on the internet or otherwise engaging in geekery, I dance (ballet, tap, jazz, acro, that kind of thing.)

It is mathematically impossible for me to be able to read all the books on my TBR in a lifetime, but darned if I'm not going to try!

About my libraryMy library is a catalog of books owned (excepting "Read But Unowned" (since 2008) & "Wishlist") but still not everything owned. Non-book media like games & movies are archived at my alternate TheDarkAge account.

I'm currently trying to devise a custom call number system, though progress is slow. Details on my LT wiki page.

I have very specific tastes. My educational reading is mostly science and math with a little linguistics thrown in. For recreational reading I tend toward sf/fantasy, mythology, shoujo manga, and young adult novels. My partner's books are mixed in with mine except for a small subsection of his comics which are in their own collection (indeed 400/15,000 is a very small subsection.) There are certain plot/character sensibilities that will endear a book to me no matter how flawed it may be otherwise, like my peculiar affinity for quest/travel/survival narratives. Tagging is important to me, but I'm always changing my mind so my tags are a work in progress and less evocative than I intend them to be.
