About meI have had a (lengthy) career in finance, but spent my first college years as an English major. I continue to read avidly, although in the last five years have devoted more time and effort to it. I'm married, live in Colorado, and do financial work in the publishing field. I love modern literature, but I'm glad I can take it up at my own pace. That way I'm left free to consider, write, and visit "LibraryThing" whenever I want. I was gratified recently while answering a poll question about my activities, to find "avid reader" as one of the choices. The pollster seemed to understand that it can take up quite a bit of time.

I also love jazz music in all forms and variants; I enjoy the theater and movies, and otherwise am pretty much a homebody.

About my libraryI'm a relative newcomer to LibraryThing; I have only included books I've read since 2004 (and not all of those). Nothing here so far by Twain, Austen, John Barth, Saul Bellow, or so many others I'm going to have to work on. Mostly what's here is late-model serious fiction, with a little biography (particularly of the American Founding Fathers) mixed in.

Thank you for your comment on Tremain, Luke. Delighted that you also enjoyed The Colour so much. Yes, I'll get to The Road Home, too. I appreciate your saying that you enjoy my reviews; it's good to know other readers are making use of them.

Cheers,
Nancy : )
Hey. I read Tinkers for my Contemporary Novel class at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I took the class with professor Michael Parker, who is actually on the creative writing faculty and only teaches the class occasionally. It was an awesome class, and I discovered a lot of great books because of it. (Parker's novels aren't too shabby either.) I agree with you, I think Tinkers is definitely one for the ages. Can you believe that was Harding's first novel? I just ordered a copy of his newest book, Enon, which I'm hoping will be just as good.
I realize what the problem with that address was. I gave you that address when I first moved in and I gave you the wrong zip code.

The correct address is

1311 Catalpa St #205
Louisville, KY 40211

Thank you
