About me11/10/07~~I'm a 67-year-old woman who loves to read. Besides reading, I enjoy figure skating shows, crossword puzzles, on-line jigsaw puzzles, collecting sea shells, and music--not necessarily in that order. My favorite singer is Dan Fogelberg, followed closely by Andrea Bocelli and Waylon Jennings. I am a big Jerry Lewis fan. I have 3 grown offspring, 10 grandchildren and even great grandchildren -- 14 at last count.
08/13/12~~I was pretty much blue today, as it would have been Dan Fogelberg's sixty-first birthday. May he rest in peace.
10/20/13~~Now I am 73 years old.
12/16/12~~Dan and my Uncle Bob have been gone for five years. I miss them.
About my library11/10/07~~"Salmagundi" is the only way to describe my library. My daughter, DeanieG, is also using LibraryThing, which we laughingly refer to as "LiberryThang," and we have many books in common. My favorite book is The Fantasy Worlds of Peter Beagle, followed closely by A Confederacy of Dunces.
11/16/08~~I finally got around to going through my library and tagging those I've read. I may have missed some. Also, I didn't tag mathematics, computer programming or sociology books, along with most other nonfiction. I wish I had all the books I've read but have given some away, some belonged to others, some were borrowed and never returned, etc. I have enough unread books to keep me busy for a while, yet I keep buying more.
05/08/09~~I feel compelled to say that, though I have books marked as "Oprah's Book Club," that is not the reason I bought them. I don't watch Oprah and have, in fact, almost not bought a book because of that. Silly, I know, but I cannot help it. ‹(^¿^)›
07/19/09~~I surely do like the Collections feature. As you can guess, at my age I've read hundreds of books that I either once or never owned. Some books I've remembered on my own, and others have been called to mind by my looking through OP's libraries -- an excellent memory jogger. :-)
09/14/09~~Equally as silly as not liking people to think that the only reason I bought a book was because of Oprah: when I order a book, not even knowing that it was made into a movie, and receive said book with a cover indicating a movie tie-in, instead of the one that was shown. I suppose the text is still the same. lol
10/20/09~~I just received three more books from my daughter, DeanieG. Yay! I've lost track of how many books she's given me over the years, but she's the only one who does that. Thank you.
10/19/10~~A package from amazon.com was just delivered. I said to myself, "Self, you haven't ordered any books lately." I opened the package. She (my daughter, DeanieG) did it again! Six books. Yay! Thank you my darlin' daughter. I love you. By the way, I loved you before you started buying me books. ♥
12/30/10~~Deanie did it again -- twice! She sent her dad a wonderful gift card for his birthday, which is on December 4, and sent us one together for Christmas. Wow! We got many great books. Two haven't arrived, yet, and two are pre-orders, but that just gives us some more anticipation. Thank you again, my darling daughter.
10/20/12~~My Deanie sent me a lovely gift card for my birthday. I'll let you guess what I spent it on! I've missed posting a couple of times when she's sent a "book" card. Sorry, Deanie. I love you bunches. ♥ And thank you!
10/20/13~~Another "book" card from my Deanie. Thank you. Love you. ♥
05/11/14~~Thank you for another "book" card, Deanie! Love you. ♥
