About meI retired at the end of 2011, and finally have time to read as much as I want. I do find that joining LT has made the never ending list of books I want to read miles longer. I did enjoy many audiobooks while working, as I spent a lot of time in the car. A good audiobook needs a good reader, and I have favorites. I know the audio book is an exceptionally good one when I want to sit in the car and listen for just a bit more. I also listen while knitting, walking, doing chores, or puttering outside.

I have three grown children and seven terrific grandchildren. My husband and I have very different reading tastes. We both like mysteries, but that is probably the extent of our reading overlap.

About my libraryI enjoy books from many different genres. I love a good mystery and historical fiction, as well as non-fiction.

My "Library" on LT houses the books I read in 2012 and anything I've read since I joined LT in 2013. Occasionally, I'll add books read prior to 2012 that I may no longer own, or those books that I have, but have marked as Unread. I am still trying to figure out how to keep up with all of the wonderful reviews that are adding to my "wishlist", while also making the time to actually read the books so that they can be moved to "read".

I have joined Club Read 2015 for another year, and will record my reading in this thread:
