Stacks Exceeds Life Expectancy was started by us, Kate and Beth (Bethylou). We are sisters raised in the Midwest but now find ourselves in New York. Kate is currently working on her PhD in Buffalo and Beth helps people get in touch with history in New York City. We grew up in a literate family. If you ever visit our parents home in Iowa, you may notice the stacks upon stacks of books piled around the house. That book hoarding gene may be genetic because our to-read stacks are far too large for us to finish in our lifetime. However, that has not stopped us from trying. We intend to chip away at those stacks, one blog post at a time.
Kate also posts about knitting and language at The Film Noir Experience.
