About mei'm a librarian--mostly because i loved learning about way too many subjects to ever specialize in just one--and spent many years (maybe too many) working in bookstores which just served to feed and enable an unquenchable addiction--this gives me motivation to unpack that plethora of book boxes in the basement--just have to go buy more bookcases

About my librarywhat can i say--books should speak for themselves should they not? (or maybe they say a little too much--or mislead?)
i really don't know but i never know what to say myself
(it is probably quite obvious that i am a buffy fanatic)

"She is too fond of books, and it has addled her brain."
-Louisa May Alcott
