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 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 newest fixation is reading books on an old Kindle given to me by my daughter.

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

Thanks for stopping by!
