About meMy husband can't understand how I can sit and read all day long. He hates being indoors and doesn't really read at all (which is beyond my comprehension!). I just tell him that my reading keeps me sane and makes me nicer to be around; he's good with it. We live in the beautiful N. Calif. wine country on about 4 acres, with five horses and three dogs (two big, one little. I'm actually outside quite a bit with that lot to hang around with, and an ever increasing garden to deal with. We show cutting horses, a sport in which the horse and rider interact with cattle in the manner of actual ranch work. These horses are incredible atheletes. I am 59, a former High School Biology teacher, and I row on a local river. I read mainly sf, fantasy, and mystery/thrillers, with the occasional "literary" book thrown in, but since joining LT my reading has expanded.

My new philosophy for life:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in an attractive and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways,
chocolate in one hand, a glass of red wine in the other,
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and
screaming "WOOOOOO HOO what a ride!"




About my libraryYour library is for books I own and/or have read starting from the time I joined. Since joing LT, my TBR pile has become so big that it's mathematically impossible for me to read them all before time runs out. Many uncatalogued books are still in boxes in storage. I can't even remember what I have, they've been there so long. But we live in a tiny old house which MUST be remodeled so I can have walls of bookshelves.
I have been adding books that I am sure are in my boxes, and my wishlist(kept separately)is growing rapidly as I read the posts in several different groups.
