You know that feeling you get when you’re reading a really amazing book ... you can’t put it down but you don’t want it to end? I live for that.
Favorite, formative authors of my library-girl life include Cousteau and Thoreau, but those hardcover American Heritage magazines of my dad's get equal billing. Nonfiction is my first love, and I'm a science and nature girl at heart, with a healthy side of American history and food writing.
I have a tendency toward too much coffee and not enough broccoli. I collect vintage Pyrex, and am deep into year 3 of perfecting my chocolate chip cookies. Random talents include lip syncing John Denver songs and explaining things to ten-year-olds. My house is dusty but the stacks of books are not.
