About meI have a BA in History, probably fueled by my addiction to books as well as things that are old. I will skip a meal to buy a book. I have always read a lot and consider a cup of something and a book the perfect combination for anywhere, anytime.I typically have 3 or 4 books going at once and I never, repeat never, leave the house without a book in my possession. Whenever I have a little bit of time I like to travel and check out bookstores wherever I go. Confession: I love the smell of a musty old book.
About my libraryI've got a nice collection going. A lot of history because English history is my favorite subject, a bit of religion as well because that's my 2nd most favorite subject. Since I graduated I have been reading more fiction and enjoying quick reads. Up to my neck in Vampires and other delightful paranormal experiences.
