About me56 year old female, married 33 years, mother of two teenage girls. Not currently working due to ill health, but hey, that gives me lots more time to read! Born in New York, grew up in New Jersey, educated in Boston, live in England.

My 2011 75 book challenge threads are:
Janet sets out with high hopes
Janet continues in the same vein

About my libraryThe usual - too many books, too little space. Have started giving away books unless I think I will really want to re-read them, or my girls will want them within the next 10-15 years. Buy them from charity shops, donate them back again. Only interesting thing is that husband and I started to give each other new hardback fiction first editions for Christmas when we first got together, so now have 60+ of these on the shelf.
