About meHere's the picture of where it all started - the first day of first grade, and ready to learn to read! By the time I was 9, my parents figured out that the best way to punish me WASN'T to send me to my room, but to take away my books and make me go outside to play with other kids.

I married a reader, and our daughter is a reader. After 29 years of marriage, we have enough books in the house to open our own library. Cataloging them through LibraryThing is forcing me to cull out the unreadables, box up the well-read and falling apart, and put on shelves all those books that haven't been read at all. Or were read so long ago, I can't remember the characters or plot. I think I've finished the books inside the house. There are still the books in the garage, the books in the attic, and the books at the rented storage space.

All my fiction books are going in boxes by the first letter of the author's last name. The "K" box is overflowing thanks to Katherine Kurtz's Deryni novels, Dean Koontz, and Stephen King! I've already filled a box and 3 bags of books that are going to the used book store. Most of these are books that were so bad, I will NEVER read them again, but already there are something slightly more than a dozen that are the duplicate copy of a book that is staying here.

About my libraryEverything under the sun! Some things more than others. The Star Wars and Star Trek books belong to my husband. The non-fiction computer books are mostly his. Robert Ludlum novels and most of the World War II novels are his, too.

The books about nursing and medicine and life sciences ... all mine. It isn't listed in the library yet, but yes, I do have "Cherry Ames, Student Nurse" and yes, I wanted to be a nurse for years. (Actually, I wanted to be a doctor until I got to college chemistry. I don't want ANYTHING badly enough to take another chemistry class!)

All the books about writing, and grammar, and techniques for fiction writers - mine. I always loved to write and tried for a couple of years before I finally realized, I just don't have that burning desire to see my name on the cover of a book. The genealogy books - was really into that for about 3 years and still dabble with it some.

The chick lit, the horror, the Christian fiction and non-fiction, the "Jesus and Mary Magdalene bloodline" books, the King Arthur books, the fantasy ... mine. The kids books are all mine - either the same copy that I have had since childhood, or a replacement copy when the original copy fell to pieces!

I'll read almost anything, and I finish every book that I start no matter how awful. Usually those "awful" books are put aside for a year or two or more, and then read again. Sometimes a book can't speak to me until I've lived a little bit more.
