About meI am a mom of five grown children. I spent many years homeschooling my kids and those years recently came to a close with my youngest graduating last June (2009). The free time I have now has been something I was looking forward to. I am especially happy to get back to reading the things that I had to put off while I home schooled. I also started looking for a way to set up a plan to be organized. I wanted my new free time to be well spent so I would be satisfied that I wasn't wasting time. Finding this site seemed to be an excellent way to set up my books so that I can keep track of what I have and be able to make wise choices about what I should read. I am just getting started so I still need to figure out how it all works. That's the main thing I will do for a while before I start my reading adventure. I am also trying to see if I can keep up a face book site also. It takes me much longer than all my kids to figure all the things I am not familiar with on computer out - but I am not in too big a rush!

About my libraryMy library is and always has been a source of joy in my life! I have been collecting books since I started school and began what still is a passion for me - LEARNING! I am in my 50's so when I was little reading was one of the activities children did. As far as indoor activities it was the main thing I did - though I too would have probably been on the computer a lot if that were an option in my day. Still adding to and tending to my library stayed one of my loves no matter how many new advancements came along. I kept most of my school books over the years too which helped my library growing all year - some years! After I married (a man who's college major was English/Literature) my library became our library! I didn't really add much to our library once we started having children. We had four boys and one girl. As they got older we became increasingly frustrated with the public and private school options so we decided to homeschool. Now THAT is when my library began to grow again!! Over the years of homeschooling five children a lot of books came in with very few going out! So many books just seemed too valuable or necessary it seemed.
In the last few years - as homeschooling children had graduated - and my book "needs" were greatly reduced - I started to get a few complaints about what looked like the invasion of the book monster! I was asked if I thought I had TOO MANY BOOKS! (Any book lover would know what my response was!!) "Are you kidding me!!!! This is a TREASURE! A WORTHY collection! My PRIDE and JOY!! However it is necessary in any happy - considerate to each other family group - to have compromise! The miracle that helped me from being terrorized was the discovery of the various swap sites! Everyone was happy with these as I really did have quite a few books that weren't absolutely necessary any more and to swap them for what I had on wish lists was an awesome idea. My family could live with "the amount of books at least NOT growing in number" With everyone happy I began my next big work when I found Library Thing and had a way of logging (cataloging) my books for the first time. It was easy and fun for quite a while as I just happened to have one of those CAT scanners suggested! I got to around 8 - 9 hundred books scanned when that was no longer possible. I had collected books for SO long as I said and I have SO many books that would NOT scan for many reasons. SOOOO - I am in the process of (dreaming of...) getting the rest of my books logged in and it is A VERY SLOW labor of love! My biggest agony is book covers! I have an OCD like obsession for all my books to look like my books. I am amazed at how many books are causing trouble and greatly prolonging the upload process. Especially with a limit of 2MB upload size! MOST of my books are not uploadable by my own scanner as they are above this limit! I wish that size limit could be reconsidered by the Library Thing bosses! I go through an amazing round and round of every possible option to try and get a cover uploaded! I will lose sleep if I can't display a book in my library with its proper cover! (How nuts is that!) I try to get as many books done any time I am free to do so. I don't know when I will be done - but I know I wont even be close to having one of the biggest libraries! How humbling to realize I had "thought more highly than I ought"
