About meSenior citizen, not retired yet, but wishing. Love arts, crafts, sewing, reading, puttzing around in yard. Living with love of my life for 18 years.... no we're not getting married, like it just the way it is. He rides motorcycle, I'm on back. Love back roads traveling when time, easy pace, stopping and smelling the flowers. No grandchildren yet, looking forward to that time, love Boxers, had the breed since my childhood, have adopted 2 from Boxer Rescue, just lost our last Boxer at age of 16 years, will be more in our lives soon.

About my libraryPrefer fiction, use reading to escape and find another world. Love mystery/adventure/scary books. Will read non-fiction too, just not as much. 5 star is a tough accomplishment in my library. Either the book has to be a page turner, such as "Shadow Divers", or the prose so eloquent and magical that the book and characters linger in my memory for years, such as "Out of Africa", probably my all-time favorite book.

If a book takes too long to get into, it's toast, although I will usually give it another chance in a year or two before I just pass it on. I get a lot of books by trading with family, at the library or buying at flea markets, then I usually pass along or they find their way to ebay. I don't have room for a collection and only keep those I might re-read. I have some old editions, like "Out of Africa" that I will keep in a collection of old books. I like old books that tell their own stories with their yellow pages and aging perfumes.
