About My Library

My library grows at a far more accelerated rate than it is read. It seems that I either can't stop myself from going into the local bookstores on a regular basis, or can't stop myself from buying at least one volume while I'm there. Both scenarios seem to present a problem, as I live up the road from several indie bookstores, and my friends and I still frequent the local Barnes & Noble so much so that the employees know us all by name (it's like Cheers!).

As far as my library, it's a little bit of this, a little bit of that. I usually find either a subject or an author that catches my interest, and start focusing on buying books in that particular genre or by that particular author. Nothing like a little self-diagnosed OCD to make life fun!

As mentioned, I buy more books than I can read at any given point, and for awhile tried to keep a stack of books by the bed of what I wanted to read next, but when that stack grew into three, I decided that might not be the best idea. Sometimes I think I need to reduce my library or at least buy less, but as my good friend Sarah says, "One can never have too many books."
About Me
Well, I think it's a given that like everybody on here, I like books. And reading. You'll generally find me in the stacks of the SFF/horror sections of any bookstore, but I do like to read a wide variety of genres.

I live in Lansing MI with my dog, Vader, and his kitty sister, Rey. Yes, I am that nerd that names his fur kids after Star Wars characters.

I recently shifted careers; after 26 years as the Creative Director of a small, independently owned community resource guide, I'm not the Graphic Art Supervisor for Dart Container. I oversee the department that handles the art for most cups/plates/etc that you'll find in many restaurants (McD's, Starbucks, Tim Hortons, etc), as well as Solo products. It's quite the career change, but I'm ready to start a new chapter in my life.
