Hello! My username is Thereen and I am a casual, sporadic editor. I believe in being bold, assuming good intentions, Featured Books, content, structure, Language Projects, and attempting neutrality. I am looking forward to contributing to wikibooks by organizing, splitting, moving, general spiffing up. In short, I like making small changes to produce better free books.
It should be noted that my bias leans "left" on most everything, and while I recognize and try to suppress this bias, it will inform my opinions, actions, edits and interests in ways both subtle and not so subtle.
