The Bishlette was born on 10/01/06. She was a big one, and is healthy and beautiful. A wonderful source of joy for the Bish family! Thank you for all the good wishes I've received!

My current address contains the zip code 15238. If you have a different zip, then please PM me for an updated address. Thanks!

I'm sure you can guess that I like books an awful, awful lot. And I like people who like books. I'm up for trades, guys. I have a serious weakness for historical fiction, so if you've got some lying around, let's be friends! MrBish is a big fan of Star Trek books. He tears through them faster than I can supply them, so we're always looking to trade for those as well.

I've been keeping track of the books I read. See what I thought of them here at my LiveJournal. Since I'm directing you to comments I've written about the books I read, I suppose I should point out that I review with abandon and I don't hold back to avoid spoilers. If you hate that idea, I'd skip my entries until you've read the book. Same goes for journal entries. I try to mention this at the beginning of my reviews, but sometimes I forget. Proceed with caution if you're a spoilophobe!
