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, drinking coffee, feeding 3 feral cats, playing with my grandson, thinking up new TIOLI challenges, or bird-watching.

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

About my libraryCome visit my thread!

Come visit my Little Free Library!

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. I'm attracted to matte-covered trade paperbacks as they seem more exotic than other books somehow.

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

Thanks for stopping by!

Notable Quote:
If we lose sight of our actions as having meaning in themselves, if we think only of winning, rather than the purpose of what we are doing, we can easily lose our way. (Roger Allan Moore in Philomena by Martin Sixsmith
