About meI am a lifelong reader and an enthusiastic library patron. I teach college English, so I am always looking for great new books to teach.
About my libraryI have a few thousand books (I've never counted all of them)and am running out of space for them. The majority of my books are fiction although I read a lot of women's memoirs, too. The books are in no particular order although I will group like authors together sometimes. I like finding a book I forgot I had, so the random arrangement doesn't bother me. My father, who makes bookshelves, has been told to cut me off, so I have to start going through my shelves and donate books I will never reread and read those I have been meaning to. More room for new ones...
