About meI'm an avid reader of fiction, especially the kind that can make me both think and laugh. I try to keep up with some of the current titles while at the same time chiseling away at the pile of classics I'm embarrassed not to have already read. Non-fiction interests tend toward biography and memoir, cooking, travel writing, science, and cultural studies. I work as a librarian so my to-be-read list grows exponentially. I normally have two books going at a time: one for myself, and one for out-loud with my daughter, who has clearly inherited the book gene.

About my libraryI descend from a long line of packrats and bibliophiles. Those ancestors having now entered that great archive in the sky, I am the lucky inheritor of their collected volumes as well as their bookish proclivities. Hence there are a lot of books around here. I'm not sure I want to read them all, but it's my lot to at least organize and dust them for future generations. I am a casual collector of modern first editions, particularly mysteries and children's books. My facilitating (read: co-dependent) husband used to buy me a new bookcase for Christmas every year until there was no more room for bookcases. I really have no sense of how many volumes there are - I am going to guess 3000 and will see how close I come.
