About meI'm a retired high school English and Latin teacher just beginning a ninth (I can't believe it!) year of reading. Unfortunately, I can't read just one book at a time, so it's a day for rejoicing when I actually finish something. Otherwise, I swim, volunteer, take time to pet husband, dog, and cats, and will eventually, maybe become a practicing pianist once more.

About my libraryI'm mostly through cataloguing my downstairs library at this point, but occasionally a book pops up that I missed. Almost everything I own is old, was bought used or with a bookstore employee discount or through our Native American offering of Penguin remainders.
