About My Library

This catalog includes both my books and my husband's, which explains the science/humanities mix. As much as I'd like to claim polymath status, those physics books nearly got tagged under 'magic', since that's my general assessment of their contents (For example, here's an actual snippet of conversation between my husband and me: "How do you think magnets work?" My answer: "Magic?").

About Me

I'm a one time Classics Professor turned Stay-at-Home Mom/Lady of Leisure turned librarian. I have a great love for books, naturally, and also lists. Lists of books are right up there for me (I have more than a few books that are lists of books, and I have a feeling that I'm not alone in this here). I have to admit that I'm a bit shy about becoming 'public.' I'm nervous about others looking at my books - is that weird? Anyway, I also love sewing and knitting, watching bad B-horror films, and I quite enjoy teaching as well. However, I'm not fond of talking about myself, so I'll just end this here.

What I'm Reading Now:

-The Moth Keeper (book from my Read Soon! shelves)
-Fatal First Edition (mystery)
-Mistress of Mellyn (romance)
-My Hero Academia vol 15 (manga)
-Mozart's Ghost (wishlist book)
-Swords and Deviltry (Green Dragon 1001 Fantasy Books)
-Cruel Beauty (B&B retelling)
-Billy Budd (audiobook)
-Sinner (Stiefvater Bibliography)
-The Seven Year Slip (from the library display shelves)
-Cross My Heart and Never Lie (Stonewall Award)
