About meI'm a 40-something software engineer, wife, mom to 2 amazing kids and 1 sweet dog, and barn crew to 3 beloved horses.

I've always got a book or two underway. I read contemporary fiction, particular literary suspense.

About half of my "reading" is listening to audiobooks. Once I picked up the habit, I've found it difficult to stop. I now read while driving, walking for exercise, doing housework, mucking out stalls, etc.

I do not have a thread in the 75 Books group for 2014. But I might stop by yours!

About my libraryI'm a reader, not a collector, and my LT library reflects that. My primary collections are "Have Read", "Currently Reading", "To Be Read", and "Wishlist".

I'm misusing the "My Library" collection because I want the green star on my "Have Read" books. So I have the same books in both collections, regardless of ownernership status.

Hey Carol--Are you still around these days? Ready for summer? Any chance you will come to the Portland meet up in two weeks? Hi! Bye!
Oh good!! It was the first group I joined here on LT and everyone's very nice. Plus we can still share book recs. I hope you still drop by and visit the 75ers every now and then! :)

I'm glad to know you are still around! Be sure to say hi sometimes! And let us know if you have a good rec.

Do you ever post on the weekly What are you reading now thread? In the group by the same name? It's a nice place to just say what you're reading and maybe make a few comments without any big commitment.

Happy reading!

Hi Carol,

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my thread the other day. I was looking for your thread a few weeks ago and didn't see one and now that I've looked again and still don't see one I can only guess that you're either not in a hurry or are not going to have one this year?

I'll miss seeing your posts if you opt out but understand that it's time consuming....

Anyway, just wanted you to know you were missed but glad to know you're around.

Well, glad to know you are alive and well! And you are one needs more chores! Hope to see you around. Say Hi! once in a while. : )
Hello? Missing you. Are you posting yet for 2014?
YOu are such a sweetie! Thanks for trying to get the Strayed tix. Major bummer. Maybe we will have to have a night out instead....
Pooh! I so wanted to meet you! Balls in your court. Maybe we could just do coffee or something....

: )

Thanks for the tix info. I will have to see if I can get down there for the tickets. We'll see....Man you have a lot of helper badges. I don't even have one! Not that I have tried, but still...good on you!
I would have loved to meet up with you but I will be in Arizona. I always look forward to making connections with other readers so keep me in mind if another meet up occurs.

Hmmm....There is not much going on at Annie Bloom's this month. Here is the link. I like Eggers, and have read Zeitoun, but it is an afternoon thing. Do you work during the day? I work part-time but it is flexible. Otherwise, we could just get together and browse? What do you think? I am sending the same message to SugarCreek. Let me know.

I see that you added ANIMAL WISE to your library. It must be an ARC. I recently won that ARC, too, from and am reading it now. Have you started reading it yet? I'd love to meet this author and am looking for her email address.
Okay, not reading Close Range. Thanks for saving me!
Hi Carol--I love your current reads, not to mention your recent activity books. Darn, there is that Coroner's Lunch again! I am off to read your review of Close Range. I like Proulx. Stay dry!
Hi! Thank you for stopping by my thread! Glad you are enjoying my reviews. Added the Invisible Ones and Breaking the Silence to my wish list!
Thanks so much for stopping by my thread -- yes -- the puppy is the only thing in our heads around here at the moment -- we leave tomorrow to pick her up, 6 hours to New Jersey, hoping the weather will be kind to us...... today I'm trying to get the house ready for when we get back on Sunday. Puppy-proofing. Daunting.

I LOVE your profile picture.

And welcome welcome to the 75. It is a wonderful place. Lucy
Thank you for the welcome, SugarCreek! As a reader, and a horse and dog person, I'm a sucker for books about horses, dogs (and other animals ;) In fact, those are most of the books still on my shelves.
I would so love that copy of the Lippman book! I'll mooch it tonight or early tomorrow, when I'm done mooching for BooksforKeeps. Speaking of which, I'm busy raiding your inventory--if you want to put the Lippman book in with those, that would be great.

Give your horse a pat and a kiss for me.
So, for your old horse, it was a little like in Black Beauty, a book that my children adored (which I didn't expect--all that Victorian sentimentality). I really can't understand what makes a person abuse animals or people smaller than themselves, but it does make me happy to see her snoring on the bed or running around with the kids.

Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter is high on my list of books to read soon. I'm glad to see you liked it.
Heh. I liked your description of Dogtown as Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul. I liked it, but I have dog who was badly abused and any description of that makes my stomach hurt. We've had her three years now and I don't think she remembers any of her past, but it was a long process.

Thanks for the reservations on BookMooch--I started writing "thank you" with each one, but then thought I'd just thank you here instead--I mooched several extra as well.

Your picture has made me miss the smell of horses.
Hi! I won An Inconvenient Elephant as an early reviewer too, but just discovered it comes after Still Life With Elephant. I see that you've read it and was wondering if you think I should read it before reading Inconvenient Elephant?

When I first started "History of Love", I wasn't too sure but this one time I stuck it out and couldn't put it down. When I got to the last page it was like it ended too soon.
"I don't like hanging out with helpless people in real life." -- I will take that as a compliment. :)
Books are on BM and reserved for you!
I am enjoying your descriptions on Coverguess. So far my favorite has been "eek not the incest book" for Flowers in the Attic. Hehehehe

This game is a sickness. It is 1 am and I can't make myself go to bed. What else is an insomniac to do??? Back to the covers!!!!

Bed, sleepy, duvet, pillow, eyelids, drooping.....
Everyone She Loved is all yours! I'll list it on BM, but can't mail out until after the holidays as DC is still digging out from our 22 inches of snow. If the delay is a hassle for you, let me know.

You posted to my thread on multiple authors. I actually gave Weight of Silence 5 stars loved it. I'm reading The Wrong Mother now.

BTW do you blog? Here is mine if you do.
thanks, SCR. since the last photos were taken, she's become a young cat. she's still one of the most intriguing creatures i've known but has filled out and we think she's just gotten her adult teeth. :)

she's the most photogenic cat i've ever been around, a real poseuse. i do miss her kitten antics but they will grow up.
well that's the nicest thing that's happened to me all day.

i got very busy and didn't really have time or capacity to spend on crambo; i couldn't afford to play to win or time to spend fossicking about for words. but i've got one more thing to do that i want to finish this weekend and then i'll be back.

i really appreciate the invitation.

thank you. really. :)
