Sobre la meva biblioteca
I have pretty eclectic tastes. Most of my library is children's/YA plus a lot of "classics" and other old(er) books. My current literary interests include pre-1950 sci-fi/fantasy novels, world fiction, and modern dystopias, utopias, and magical realism, as well as retellings, add-ons, etc. of classic stories and novels. And books for my fields of study and profession (folklife, Catholicism, communal societies, new religious movements, archaeology, etc.).

My ratings:
5 stars - great book, loved it, perfect
4 stars - pretty good book, decent read
3 stars - hated it (or children's books in a large series - i.e., Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, etc. - are often rated like this just because they're all basically the same)
Sobre mi

Curator for a small heritage center of a religious community. Having recovered from completing a graduate degree in Folk Studies/Historic Preservation, I'm now back in grad school for Sustainable Food Systems. When I'm not working or studying, I'm dancing, gardening, or reading still more. My rate of acquiring books has not slowed to the same extent as my rate of actually reading said books, and alas, my TBR pile has become unmanageable at this point.


Currently I'm most interested in colonial/early America and religion, especially New Religious Movements and communal societies. Volunteering at a Shaker historic site and then being hired by a convent has only been enabling. :)
