A hello from a book-obsessed crazy person

Hello. As I wrote in my little bio, I did my Ph.D. in English and have just (this week) finished the work for my MLIS (Library science). I have a Kindle, and, because I am totally insane, I just ordered an iliad. At this rate, I will be paying my student loans until I am in my 90s.

I also ordered one because I'm tired of reading badly-converted Adobe files. I hope that the iLiad does a good job with these.

Lauren

Welcome Lauren. Now you know why they call it "The Terminal Degree." It leads to terminal insanity.

Oh ... you are going to be so popular around here!!! We're all crazy as loons and completely book obsessed. Glad to meet you ... and I hope your iLiad is the answer to your prayers.
