Hi Jeanne. Welcome to the group. I'm in the SCA, local group Chatelaine and Packrat O' Doom (which means archivist/librarian). I hope you have ample bookshelf room as you'll be getting a ton of recommendations on here. :D

I love them, too! I love rocky beaches. And the tide pools are the bomb.

Oh, I already have overfilled bookshelves; and we make regular trips to the library. I've been in the SCA for 35 years last July.
