About meMy ratings:
About my libraryMy library includes many of my favorite books as well as many favorites of family members. Coming from a long line of avid readers and book lovers, I have a few books from parents, grandparents, and several greats back – from several parts of the family; well worn books from individuals with many interests. I do own many of the books I have entered on LT, but I also enthusiastically support the local libraries. Therefore, I include on LT a good number of books “Read, but unowned.” Our regional library network, with opportunities to borrow books from a wide range of area libraries, is an exceptional resource for those of us who have no more shelf space, who reluctantly part with books, and / or who have family members who object to having SO many books on our shelves. We have outstanding Friends of the Library book sales at a wonderful nearby library. Therefore, I am trying to increase the number of books in my LT “Given away” category by donating books instead of buying. Unfortunately, this seems to be a losing battle.
