About meBooks, knitting, cats, swashbuckling.
About my libraryThere are four big sections: young adult books, fantasy, history, and fiber arts. The YA comes from about eight years of working in indie bookstores specializing in kids' lit. I've mostly gotten over fantasy as a genre...but not completely. The history (mostly early modern Caribbean history) is left over from college, but I get back to it occasionally. And I am a happily obsessive knitter and spinner.
