LiveJournal friend

kchew, known to some of you as Kristen or klc, has started an LJ which is almost entirely about what she's reading. As she reads almost everything -- when her small son will let her -- it's an interesting Journal, especially to those of us who can then at least have a passing acquaintance with some of the things she's writing about.

She's been an acquiring editor for UofT Press (University of Toronto, just in case some of you hail from Texas), and also for the trade publishing house James Lorrimar runs (name of which escapes me, and yes, I'm being lazy), and has done editing work for Jane Siberry (whee!), but she's a touch on the shy side, and almost all of her interests run to books and reading. Her house kind of looks like a library. You know, a library that's packed three books deep on a shelve (ETA which would be like a "shelf" except with the sense that you could never ever have one of them. Okay, no it's a typo. But it's kind of a subconscious typo which indicates that my house, sadly, looks a lot the same), with books on dressers and tables and every possible space that's flat and unoccupied.

Re: Too many books!
Sounds like someone needs to read "The Girl Who Hated Books" (http://www.amazon.ca/exec/obidos/ASIN/1582700060) before the little one gets too much older...

It's out of print, though, according to that link <g>. Which seems somehow strangely appropriate...
