About meLove books: borrowing or buying them, reading and reviewing them. Have hundreds I haven't read yet! Mostly fiction, interspersed with non-fiction. Average 1 book per week.

About my libraryLots of fiction and some non-fiction,slowly reading my way through them.

To date I've cataloged the books I own, a combination of my favorite reads, and many unread but-hope-to-get-to-soon. Also listed the many books I've read over the years, either borrowed and returned, or owned and donated. Then there is the monster of a wish list I've created.


Favorite authorsJ. M. Barrie, Pearl S. Buck, Agatha Christie, Marianne Fredriksson, Kenneth Grahame, Martha Grimes, Ursula Hegi, P. D. James, Faye Kellerman, E. Nesbit, Ruth Rendell, Mary Stewart, J. R. R. Tolkien (Shared favorites)
