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

Married over 30 years, and mother of two adult sons, and a grandmother to one.

My husband and I take day trips to New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and my favorite, New York's Catskills to visit restorations, museums, historical sites, small towns with collectible/antique shops, parks and more. He loves politics so we've visited a number of presidential homes as well. We've sadly cut down significantly on the number of Used Book sales we visit mostly because of space shortage.

About my libraryLots of fiction and some non-fiction. I am 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. I've also listed the many books I've read over the years, either borrowed and returned, or owned at some point and then donated. Additionally, there is my very large wishlist.
