About meI'm a therapist and avid reader; I could spend an entire Saturday curled up with a book in front of the fire. I also love to cook, garden and spend time with family. My wonderful hubby and I share our home with our cats, Rudy and Sam, and our newest cat Max. I was a bookworm from the time I was small, and love books for their transportive and transformative power.

About my libraryMy collection is steadily growing; I enjoy reading modern literary fiction as well as the classics. I am also fascinated by literature about other countries; this interest was inspired in part by my husband's deployment to Iraq in 2006 which fueled a desire to know more about the Middle East. My collection has been slowly expanding to include literature from and about other countries.

"Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity… we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access, reassurance."-- A.E. Newton

"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers." Charles W. Eliot

"A book must be an ice-axe to break the seas frozen inside our soul." Franz Kafka

"Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book." Christopher Morley, The Haunted Bookshop

"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one." George R. R. Martin
