About meOld, broken down and hurtin', with a house full of kids and grandkids- all of whom read, Read, READ! I am one of those poor poor wretches who can't eat without having a book in front of me (and this malady was passed on to the next generations). I also am one of those who has, in addition to a dining room book, the following: a bathroom book, a bedroom book, and two living room books, depending upon where I sit. 95% of my books are non-fiction, because a day in which something is not learned is a day wasted.

About my libraryPeople who come to our house frequently ask "Did you read all those books?", and I always think, "What an odd question"- why in the world else would we have 'em?
Our house has two rooms dedicated to books (my office and the family room) as well as book shelves in the hall, on one wall of our bedroom, on one wall of the "cousins room", one wall of the dining room, two walls of the living room, and one built for us by my dad which runs along our entry-way stairs.
