About Me

Hello, I live amongst the cornfields in East Central Illinois, USA.

Aquarius. Librarian-type. Pluviophile/Ceraunophile. Anglophile.

I love travel, so tell me about where you're from! I want to hear about folktales or urban legends from your region.

Camping and going to live concerts are things I do.

I exchange loads of postcards, and trying my hand at stamp-collecting.

Favorite Music

I adore music, and would love to hear about your favorite songs/artists. My favorite music includes Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews Band, Wilco, Phish, Pearl Jam, and most classic rock in general. But I love listening to new things!

I've been falling asleep recently to a playlist called "sad cello."

Favorite Television

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, Outlander, British television in general. Twin Peaks. X-Files. Black Mirror. GoT. Breaking Bad.

Favorite Books

I read a lot; any recommendations?

LOVES: LOTR, Dune, ASOIAF, The Kingkiller Chronicle, Circe, The Chocolate War, Tana French novels, Three Dark Crowns, The Southern Reach Trilogy, Discovery of Witches

Fantasy. SciFi. Nonfiction.

Recently Read and Enjoyed: Lovecraft Country Normal People Little Fires Everywhere The Nickel Boys Throne of Glass series

Stuff I like

Any kind of ephemera--lately: book-themed or travel-themed.

Skeleton Keys

Stamps, stamps, stamps (used, from everywhere)

Libraries

Forest-scapes

Camping

Cozy Cabins

Vintage

Board Games

Books

Folk Art--esp. Eastern European, Scandinavian

Zines about music

90's era music magazines

Cats

Dislikes

Overall, items have been lovely. But there are a few things that I really don't have use for:

Kids TV/movie stickers--please no more paw patrol, minions, sesame street, etc.

Stained postcards
