I read a great deal, although not exclusively; I also write poetry and fiction, parent my two young children, manage my household, cook and eat food, spend time with my partners, watch various things on television (anime series, Mad Men, Anthony Bourdain’s food tourism), listen to podcasts (sometimes while knitting), alternately tend to and neglect my garden… and so on and so forth.

My Family Name

Although ‘Lin’ is a common Chinese name, I am not of Chinese descent; I am a white woman. My brother chose ‘Lin’ as our family name as a teenager, from the Scots word.

This Blog

I began this as a general-purpose blog, but inspired by Phyllis Rose’s amazing The Shelf I am now using it to document my personal adventures in reading.
