About My Library
I buy used books almost exclusively, for the price and the unexpected finds. I inherited my love of books from my parents, along with my father's large library of science fiction and fantasy. Although we have bookcases in every room, I still have boxes and boxes of books in the garage. My big plan is to use LibraryThing to catalog those with some kind of scheme for numbering the boxes, so I can find books. Well, I can dream.
About Me
I wanted to be a librarian when I grew up, but you had to study two foreign languages so I gave up and majored in history. Now I'm a technical writer for big computer systems so I guess I ended up telling people how to find information anyway. I also thought I'd be an author when I grew up, but discovered that I don't have any stories to tell, at least not ones with any kind of arc that somebody else might like to read. I do have a talent for making up entertaining lies.

I live in the Silicon Valley with my husband, two cats, two turtles, and stuff we buy at flea markets. I'm crow on The Well.
