Introducing myself

Since I have a bunch of new followers, I figured I’d introduce myself. Hi, everybody! You can call me Familiar, FD, Library Girl, or LG, whatever you prefer.

 

I first started blogging back in 2008. On my Blogger blog, I review books, movies, TV shows, and more. I try to keep my BookLikes blog mostly focused on books, since I’m not sure how people would feel about all the rest. I’m a fan of Japanese anime, Korean dramas, science fiction, fantasy, mysteries, romance, and Japanese manga.

 

I’m a Catalog Librarian at an academic library, so I geek out over things like metadata and searching. When I’m not at work, I love reading (of course), watching TV, baking delicious goodies, playing computer and mobile games, and playing with my lovely and energetic cat (my avatar is one of her pics from when she was a kitten).
