About meI love reading and read anything .... though if I had to pick favourites, I'd go for historical, travel and biographies.

About my libraryI discovered Library Thing, thanks to OZVBB and I'm entering books into the library as I read them as of May 2010. In Feb 2012 I've added our bookclub reads as of 1999 and also decided to enter the old file of books from my Visual Bookshelf that no longer exists. I lost all the journals from that shelf so will try to compensate in time. Other than that, keeping up with reading has been in written journals.... something which I rarely do, nowadays.

Carole, I'll be tickled to see you in the Orange group - especially when July hits. Jill (mrstreme) has an Orange January/July facebook page too. AND from her blog she gives away a bunch of Orange books through the month. You'll read about that either here or on fb - lots of fun and very inspiring.
I've just realized that I won't live long enough to read all the books I've bought through the years, and it doesn't seem to make any difference in my buying habits.
I'll try to write a little review of My Cleaner too, so that there will be two. I also see that you loved two of my very favorite books of the past year or so - The Memory of Love and Cutting for Stone - but not as much as I did. *CfS* is probably my book of the decade.
Carole, I'm reading My Cleaner for which you have written the only review. Thank you for it! As I look at our books in common, I see that your fiction is weighted heavily toward contemporary women. Are you interested in reading Orange Prize nominees with a group of the like-minded? I'll send you an invitation so that you can check it out if, in fact, you still come to LT.
