About meMe? Oh, how nice of you to ask! Well, happily retired and living the good life with "My sun and stars" and our little guy, whose really only little in my heart as he is 15. There is also Mittens our lonely house cat still mourning the loss of his baby brother, Peanut.
Love to read, discuss what I've read and discover the recommendations of others. It's really unnecessary to even mention that. It's why we're all here.
Travel is high on my list and I enjoy cross stich and just being.

About my libraryRating scale as of 8-29-14:
5 stars = I love this book so much I want to hug it and keep it forever.
4 stars = Close to perfection but not quite there.
3 stars = There's just something that bugs me.
2 stars = Words, words, words, nothing but words
1 star = How many paper planes can I make with this waste of pulp. How much warmth will it generate in the fireplace?

A little bit of this and a little bit of that. I don't usually look for a specific genre I just want a good, thought provoking book or one just for fun. I usually set books free which I've enjoyed but will not reread and those I really do not like. My library consists of books I absolutely adore and will reread and books I have yet to read.
