Late Reintroduction - Amanda

Postby Amanda » Fri August 29th, 2008, 10:30 am

I forgot to do my reintroduction!

Anyway, I live in Sydney, with husband, and little boys Luke (3) and Joel (8 months), and a madcap boxer dog Evie. I am currently on maternity leave (hoping to not go back), from my job in a pathology lab. I am a cytologist and we screen pap smears, and fine needle biopsies and other such lovelies.

I buy way too many books for my own good, and love to read about Tudor and Medieval periods, general British History, French History. I also like to read about the plague, and I seem to be drawn to holocaust stories as well.

I have my books catalogued on http://www.librarything.com/home/nellista
and I am on Facebook too http://www.new.facebook.com/profile.php?id=608050926
and I have a blog too http://www.readingandbeading.blogspot.com

Hi Amanda. Very interesting job and sounds analytical. Or do the samples all the look the same after a while?

Remember, you can never have too many books or not enough space!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Hi Amanda. I like all these re-introductions. There are a lot of regular contributors that I didn't know anything about.
