About meIntroduction To Me:

I'm LT User #34,867. :)

Want to know what I'm doing? You can usually find me adding books to my Little Free Library, attending BookCrossing or LibraryThing Meet-Ups, baking, drinking hot chocolate, feeding 2 feral cats, babysitting my grandson, reading, solving Sudoku puzzles, or thinking up new TIOLI challenges,

In the past, I have been called "the Johnny Appleseed of books". :)

About my libraryCome visit my thread!

Come visit the Little Free Library of Twinbrook!

My Reading Preferences:
I like both fiction and non-fiction. I prefer English translations of foreign (especially Middle Eastern or Asian) novels and books by lesser known authors.

My Wishlist on BookMooch: where I can try to actually find some of these books.

Thanks for stopping by!

Notable Quote:
“...perhaps at dark moments of their lives people need to remember the good times, as if their lives had been drenched in sunlight. Perhaps that is a good thing.” (S. by Slavenka Drakulic)
