Acerca de míLibrarians think I'm a computer geek.

Techies think I'm a bookworm.

And my last roommate called me a librarian with a tattoo, and I wasn't even a librarian then.

I'm a librarian (cataloger, actually) at the Poquoson Public Library in southeast Virginia, and live in Newport News, with my husband and two cats, Miranda and Oz.

Acerca de mi bibliotecaMy library consists primarily of books I've not only read, but that I enjoy reading over and over again. Well, in terms of fiction - non-fiction I like to have around as reference, and tends heavily toward language (thesauruses, style guides). As a librarian, I weed; if I no longer value a book, it goes (usually to a book-swapping site so I can obtain a new one). And I like to have my favorites in hardcover - right now I have an insane number of books wishlisted on two book-swapping sites, almost all of them books I already own in paperback, but want in hardback. I've also added books I don't own to my catalog as well (tagged as @read-not-owned). Mostly books borrowed from the library - only stuff I feel is memorable in some way, though.

My fiction tastes are varied: I read almost every genre, though I certainly lean toward fantasy and science fiction. I think I enjoy the speculative fiction genres because I appreciate the creativity that world-building entails. As such, I prefer the SF that takes place in worlds substantially different than our own, and especially if the cultures are different - that, I think, is even more difficult to create than a different physical world, and even more fascinating - one of my favorites, Sheri Tepper, is particularly good at both aspects of world-building.

I do have a little bit of a weakness for nice leatherbound classics just to have on display in my living room - they account for the @will-never-read tag.

And finally, for non-fiction, my interests are:
Bodyart (cultural aspects)
(Books about) books
Education & culture
English language usage (humorous)
Evolutionary psychology (my, what a run of Es!)
Fashion advice
Religion and sociology
Signs and symbols
Technology and sociology
