Extended Profile
I have a B.A. in History from Lewis University, a small Catholic school in the Chicago suburbs. I am doing some substitute teaching right now, and looking for a full-time teaching position. Books have been my dear friends since I was old enough to hold one. I love the Internet and the opportunities for adventure it provides, but reading the printed page is the best, in front of a crackling fire, a rainy window, a bus stop, anywhere there is light for your eyes.

I am interested in books about Oriental culture, books about tea, humor books such as Zits, Cathy, Doonesbury, and Sylvia, Star Trek novels, Sci-Fi, memoirs such as Dry by Augusten Burroughs, and books set in New York City. I have been married for three and a half years. My husband is from Ghana.

We have a fat tortoishell cat named Joplin and a delightful Blue Point Applehead Siamese named Ming. We also just were blessed with a baby boy.

I love to trade for any book marked available.

Here is my wish list of books that I will pay you for postage:
