About meI am a 50-something mother of two girls who are also both readers. My husband is also a book lover, though unlike me, he does not feel the need to have a book within 6 inches of him at all times. I am an elementary school librarian and I also work for a professional children's performing organization as a music assistant and music librarian.

I love books -- there are stacks and piles of them all over the house. I do not read as much as I'd like, but I do try to read to the girls as much as possible. When I was growing up my mother read to my brother and me at the dinner table until I went to college. We discovered some wonderful books together, and I hope I am recreating those memories with my daughters.

I am participating in the 75-book challenge again this year. Please stop by and visit!

About my libraryI enjoy fiction, non fiction, biography, memoir, cookbooks, humor and children's literature. The books listed here in my library are books I've read. I have hundreds more in TBR piles and lists, but I do prefer cataloging only those I've actually read. That may need to change if I find I start buying duplicates...
