Hi all! I am an early 30’s female bibliobibuli.

There are some people who read too much: the bibliobibuli. I know some who are constantly drunk on books, as other men are drunk on whiskey or religion. They wander through this most diverting and stimulating of worlds in a haze, seeing nothing and hearing nothing. – H.L. Mencken

I am from California originally, but I have lived in Oregon (sorta), Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Japan, and South Korea (not necessarily in that order). I am a bit of a nomad, but I am well settled at the moment having recently bought my first house which I call the Caravan Palace. My heart is still in Japan though, and I intend to move back there someday.

Growing up, my family owned a bookstore and I was able to take any books I wanted from it whenever I wanted. It was a bibliobibuli’s dream.

I love to read, travel, drink tea, play the occasional video game, and knit.

I have degrees in Japanese and Computer Programming, and I currently work for a tech company doing tech writing.

I am a semi-hermit on my way to becoming a crazy spinster cat lady, so you are welcome to contact me, just don’t expect to hear back unless I know you (it’s nothing personal).
