I'm a geeky artsy librarian nerd, with a bookish penchant for fantasy (preferably *without* a plethora of names containing "y"), scifi, comics, weird premises, humor, queer/diverse characters, and insane descriptions of food & drinks. (I also adore avocados, but that's less relevant to books.)

More formally:
Dr. Starr Hoffman is the Director of Assessment and Planning for the University Libraries at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She is a member of the Libraries' senior leadership team, and her responsibilities include strategic planning, assessing library performance, and consulting with library faculty on research design. Her previous positions include Head of the Journalism Library at Columbia University (New York, NY) and the Head o

The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis
“In friendship...we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years' difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another...the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting--any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you," can truly say to every group of Christian friends, "Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another." The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.”

The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
C.S. Lewis
