About meI love reading and I love being surrounded by books. I enjoy reading a wide variety, including literary fiction, classic fiction, mysteries, and non-fiction (primarily history and biographies).

About my libraryMy home library is undergoing some necessary changes. When completed, my LT account will reflect a combination of books that I own and have read, books that I own and have not read, and books that I have read but do not own. This will be much easier to accomplish now that we have collections, although it will take awhile for me to get it the way I want it!

I know what you mean. Even though I do the majority of my reading via ebooks, I still can't resist picking up books here and there, especially bargains you just can't pass up. Now when I say I'm going to cut back on my book buying, my husband just rolls his eyes at me.
I don't go to very many garage sales either; however, I LOVE Half Price Books! And flea markets are usually better than antique stores, although I do go to both. I love when you can get a bag or box of books for a couple of dollars and them find some gems that you were looking for! And best of all are bookstores that have a cat in residence!! :o)
P.S. I love your pics as well. It seems we also have cats in common! :o)
Thank you Sharon and also for accepting my friend request. I believe we have a lot of books in common. I enjoy sites like Library Thing and Goodreads because it's more enjoyable when you have people who share your interests to meet and talk to. Sometimes I wonder how I ended up with such a large collection, but it's fun to check out flea markets and yard sales, etc. You never know what gems you end up finding.

Thanks! You have a wonderful library.
Hi Sharon,

Thanks so much for your kind words about Bonnie and Clyde. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Yes, in some ways, the Middletown fiasco was one of the more important moments in the formation of Clyde's character--it got him sentenced to 14 years, which in turn made him vow never to get caught again. It was the only time anyone knows of where he threw down a gun rather than shoot it out.
