Hello from Ariadne

Postby Ariadne » Tue August 26th, 2008, 9:32 pm

I'm not sure if I ever formally introduced myself on the old board, but my name here is the same as before. I've been using Ariadne as a handle for a long time and have gotten used to it. I'm also Ariadne02 on Librarything.


I've been reading historical fiction for about 20 years. I read all eras, all locales with a slight preference for medieval England, colonial America, and anything royalty-related. Though I'm originally from Connecticut, my husband and I moved out to middle-of-nowhere, Illinois, in 2002 so I could take a job as reference/electronic resources librarian at a local university.


Looking forward to participating more on this new board!

I'm a little dense, I guess. It took me a while to realize that "Ariadne" on the old board was you! I remember the "a-ha!" moment. I love the name, though. :)

Thanks, Julianne!

I wish I remember where I found the image for my old avatar. Can't find it on my PC anymore, so this one will have to do for now.

Ms Ariadne of the very, very tempting Reading the Past blog! I swear everytime you post I end up adding more books to my TBR list.

Hi Ariadne, glad you're back! I live in Chicago, but unfortunately have no idea where Charleston IL is :s

Thanks! I hadn't heard of Charleston before I moved out here. It's a rural university town. If you head south on I-57 and drive for three hours, you'll run right into it :D
