About me"This nice and subtle happiness of reading, this joy not chilled by age, this polite and unpunished vice, this selfish, serene life-long intoxication." ~Logan Pearsall Smith

I have had a love affair with books and reading since I was a small girl. I remember my third grade teacher telling my mother during conference about his seeing me walking home from school "weaving like a drunkard" because I had my nose buried in a book as I walked along.
Not only do I love to read, but I love books themselves; I love the feel and heft of them and the promise of what waits right below the cover. I love gilded pages and beautiful end-papers and tooled leather bindings.

About my libraryMy library is varied, a little bit of every thing and a lot of what my passions are; all things medieval, children's books, Christianity and travel. I collect Moveable/Pop-up books and children's picture books.
