About meI am a mother at home who homeschools her two sons ages 15 & 12. I enjoy slowfood cooking and baking, nature, photography, knitting, and art.

About my libraryOur family owned over 8000 books and I got rid of about half when we moved half way across the country in 2011. Sadly, the sudden move meant the decluttering was quickly done and now this LT account is out of date. I have let go of some books listed in my library & other stuff I own, I have never loaded in.

Most of our books are for homeschooling our children. Both my husband and I read for information, self-education and for pleasure and of course our children read for the same reasons.

I also own some books that the library does not have available, such as new books about the arts and crafts that I do for fun. We also own a lot of out-of-print books since we know they are hard to find in a library when we want them.

Since we do some 'alternative' things I often have to buy books on the topics since local public libraries often do not have them in circulation. These are books ranging from attachment parenting, homeschooling how-to, alternative education, education reform, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, natural birth, and alternative medicine. Also it includes a bunch of new books on making art and creativity (which I have no clue why the libraries are not buying).

Hi Christine – Laurie from ArbeitenZeit Media here. Thanks for participating in Library Thing’s Early Reviewer program, and for winning a copy of Robert Hewitt’s NO INSTRUCTIONS NEEDED: An American Boyhood in the 1950s. This is to let you know that the books are on their way to us, and we expect to mail your copy, via USPS PRIORITY, on 2010 February 16. We are very pleased to be publishing this delightful look at one boy’s experiences, and look forward to your input.
Hi,
I've combined your copy of The Lone Arthur by Coren with the copies of The Lone Arthur by Alan Coren, but if you would like to change the author name of your copy to Alan Coren, it would make things tidier - entirely your choice, of course.
Hi Christine,
Fellow homeschooler here, in Colorado - and I see we share some really good booklist books...the one by Lisanne Bales and Who Should We Then Read by Jan Bloom. I have to confess, that after listing almost 4000 books on LT, I am now in the process of culling them. Also, my youngest is ten years old, so it's easier to part with the books she's read or doesn't care for, etc. I'd like to get down to 3000 or fewer. One author I'd never heard of until reading Lisanne's booklet, is Jill Paton Walsh. Her YA novel of the fall of Constantinople in 1451, The Emperor's Winding Sheet, is outstanding.
